Born and raised in East Detroit, a diet of Prince, 80s R&B and techno provided the crucible for Jimmy Edgar’s life in music. Ever precocious, from his mid-teens he was building his foundations as a DJ, playing at raves in the city alongside some of techno’s founding fathers, as well as conducting ambitious experiments with rudimentary recording equipment, and by the age of just 18 he’d signed to the electronic music institution, Warp. Later recording for K7! and Hotflush, and advancing his considerable DJ talent during a spell residing in Berlin, in 2013 Jimmy established the Ultramajic imprint with fellow electronic auteur Aden, and it is fresh material from the label that provides the backbone for FABRICLIVE 79.
“I went through a bunch of unreleased tracks we are going to put out on Ultramajic and decided to launch them with this mix. I got some exclusive material from my good friends Danny Daze, Crystal Bandito, and Kris Wadsworth. This mix is explores the different vibes of Ultramajic.” – Jimmy Edgar
