Video Premiere: Jimmy Edgar "Let Yrself Be"

We already pointed out in our recent High Five feature that flamboyance is a hallmark of Jimmy Edgar's work, so it would be kind of redundant to describe the Berlin resident's video for Majenta cut "Let Yrself Be" as "flashy."

"Let Yrself Be" deals in mind-blowing rave energy, unnerving psychedelia, and garishness: The bedazzling, boldfaced credits and Japanese characters nod to Gaspar NoƩ's opening sequence in Enter the Void with as much enthusiasm as Kanye West's video for "All of the Lights."
