With the holiday season coming into full swing, Detroit-born sonic explorer and Ultramajic label head Jimmy Edgar has embraced the spirit of giving by gifting techno lovers everywhere a free edit of the DJ Spookie track "Reload." The edit came to life through a matter of coincidence and musical appreciation between the two artists, as Jimmy explains:
"This track has been one of my personal joys since I first heard it in 1998. I decided to make an edit, mostly because all of my vinyl copies are in such poor condition. Coincidentally, Traxman introduced me to Emmanuel Pippen (aka DJ Spookie) just a day before this free release. After speaking, I was surprised to find out he produced another top record of mine, Emanuel "Me & 909" on Trax Records.
Emmanuel gave his blessing with the edit, which is important to me because I wanted to keep the integrity of the track while also adding my personal flavor to it. Thank you for sharing this moment with me." -Jimmy Edgar
