We were already excited about Jimmy Edgar's forthcoming album, XXX, but after hearing this Machinedrum remix of first single "Hot, Raw, Sex," we can go ahead and upgrade our status to 'positively giddy.' The original version is perfect for cooly surveying the club and scoping the dancefloor, but the remix offers something a little more manic and fun. The NY-based producer does import the silky '80s funk vibes and shimmering synths from Edgar's original, but he employs them alongside a nimbly skittering house beat and a wonky, darting bassline.
The Hot, Raw, Sex single is available now. XXX will be released digitally on July 27 and physically on September 14.
