Jimmy Edgar "Nothing is Better"

Jimmy Edgar is one of those artists you imagine doesn't like to sit still for more than a few minutes at a time. Besides fashioning dark, driving electronic music under his own name, he also heads up house- and funk-influenced project Her Bad Habit, serves as executive producer for X District, and is rumored to be one-half of electro duo Plus Device. Add to that his work as a fashion photographer (and the fact that he looks hotter in eyeliner than most women), and, well, it all makes him the type of guy you'd like to sit down and have a coffee with.

His latest project finds the Detroit native once again working with brooding beats and unsettling rhythms that hint at something sinister waiting just around the corner (or in the case of the track's video, something sensual). Fans of this one should also check the flipside, a remix by Hefty Records founder John Hughes. The single will be offered as a donation-only release this month, free to download, with 100% of the proceeds going back to the artist. A digital copy will be available via retailers in November.

What did he just hold a key down on a synth while using an arpeggiator? What a joke. This is almost as bad as having your head held down on pavement in a moving vehicle.
