Jimmy Edgar "Hot, Raw, Sex (Instra:mental Remix)"

Any more posts like this and we might have to change our website's name to xlr8rpresentsjimmyedgar.com. But there's obviously a reason the prodigious producer keeps showing up in our webpages, so we'll happily continue with our Edgar-mania, including this excellent remix of his new album's first single by UK DJ/producers Instra:mental (pictured above). This version of "Hot, Raw, Sex" (anyone else curious about that second comma?) makes the tune less of a celebration of pulling an all-nighter with a special someone and more of an exploration into the depraved longings of an extremely lonely sociopath. Edgar's chilly production aesthetic is still intact, but Instra:mental turns the original's '80s-funk vibe on its head—transforming it into an ominous, churning bass tune propelled by skittering beat and synth work.

You can catch Jimmy Edgar touring North America in support of XXX, next month.
