Commencing with a nod to his hometown forebears, with Terrence Dixon and Patrice Scott contributing deep Detroit cuts to the opening minutes of the mix, we’re soon reveling in a slew of unreleased Ultramajic material from Crystal Bandito and Jimmy himself, including a typically no-nonsense collaboration with LA native Truncate and the snare-driven ‘Walk Show’ featuring the deeply-missed Chicago footwork icon DJ Rashad. It’s here that the many facets of Jimmy Edgar really shine through: DJ, producer, and label curator. The mix picks up an unmistakable strut, before momentarily taking a breath with Danny Daze’s deep house blending unexpectedly into the ghetto-tech of DJ Godfather & DJ Starski. A pair of unyielding Kris Wadsworth cuts sandwich another Jimmy Edgar exclusive in the mix’s final stretch, ensuring that, despite its author’s nomadism through the years, the music of Detroit runs like a seam through FABRICLIVE 79.
