Musician, photographer and designer Jimmy Edgar is a wayward star-child streaking across the cosmic dance-floor. Endowed with a supernatural feel for futuristic funk, the Detroit native has been bleeping and grinding about the Milky Way since he was a teenage humanoid. While his peers were worrying about their grades and popularity, Edgar was spinning alongside his hometown's DJ heroes and programming intricate beats that were unquestionably interplanetary communication disguised as dance music. The new album "XXX" and its New Jack Swing winks as much at Minneapolis, Compton and Paris as it does Detroit or Berlin.On new turf, Edgar's sonic prowess takes on a leaner, more radio-ready shine. 'Function of Your Love' zips and struts about like something Andre Cymone might have cooked up for Jody Watley in their chart-topping heyday.  On "Hot, Raw, Sex" Edgar lets the synth stabs and hand claps fly fast and loose. "In My Color" has the percolating, crystalline bounce of I:Cube's late 90's French Touch. "Midnite Fone Call" is the kind of lush Quiet Storm that Alex Gopher might kill for. 'Push', with its staccato rhythm and come-hither incantations would make Timbaland blush. The instrumental interlude "One Twenty Detail", runs Kraftwerk through a low-rider worthy break-beat filter and "Vibration" sounds like pornographic Morse Code tapped out by Egyptian Lover. While the album is largely a one-man show, XXX is not without accomplices. A Latvian girl named Anet sings on "Physical Motion" and a rising new RandB singer from NYC signed to XL recordings, Azealia, ad libs on the same track.
