Following Jimmy Edgar‘s 2020 collaborations with artists from the likes of Hudson Mohawke, SOPHIE, and Danny Brown, the electronic sound-bender returns for the official announcement of forthcoming LP, CHEETAH BEND. The project will be his first full-length solo album since his critically acclaimed 2012 output, Majenta. Accompanying the news, the sonic innovator has also released his new single featuring Matt Ox, “PAUSE.”
Edgar’s ability to fuse different styles, sounds, and techniques has set him apart from the rest of the industry. Dipping his toes in rap and alternative electronic, his artistry culminates in a unique soundscape of uncharted territory. Edgar himself states,
“The value I bring is hybridization. I think about different universes of sound coming together to create an entirely new domain of knowing.”
Lauded for his impeccable sound design, Edgar employs CHEETAH BEND as a destined platform for showcasing his ear for detail and nuance within electronic music. Building up his own distinctive texture for the last decade and a half, Edgar primes himself to continue delivering only the freshest tastes in the industry.
CHEETAH BEND is out February 26 via Innovative Leisure. For now, listen to his latest offering, “PAUSE.”
