Jimmy Edgar will release a new album in November.
LIQUIDS HEAVEN, an 11-track release, is the US artist’s first solo album since Cheetah Bend, released last year on his own Innovative Leisure. We’re told to expect a “psychedelic canvas of future R&B, euphoric bass, mutant tear-the-club-up rap, foundation-splintering noise, and gossamer soul.”
On a surface level, the album is a “starburst of avant-garde fusion,” but for all the high energy propulsion there is a counter-balance of melancholic beauty. “The genius of it is that for all its cerebral intent, it remains replete with raw and visceral emotion,” the label adds.
Inspired by liquid matter and the physicality of digital art, the album features several collaborators, including rappers Trinidad James, 10k.Caash, and ZelooperZ. There’s also Toronto-based singer MILK.
Raised in Detroit, with stints in Berlin, Los Angeles, and New York, Edgar’s list of close collaborators includes Hudson Mohawke, Danny Brown, and Machinedrum as J-E-T-S.
Alongside the release, Edgar has shared two “mind-melting, genre-bending” tracks, blending funky electronic motifs, futuristic RnB, and techno.
