Review: Previously only available on vinyl, Citizen and Jimmy Edgar's superb Love Fever 12" gets a welcome digital release. The EP sees two Citizen solo efforts; "Room Service", a sleazy tech house cut filled with cavernous dub synths with echoes of Blawan in its heavy drums, and "You Give Me That Something", a deeper production whose titular vocal is combined with warm synth pads and rustling percussion. "Deep Touch" sees Citizen team up with Hotflush's Jimmy Edgar, a considerably more minimal house jam with breathless vocal samples and touches of Edgar's neon electro - this sold out fast on its original release and it's easy to see why.

Review: Electro-deviant Jimmy Edgar has linked up once again with his JETS partner Machinedrum to launch the Ultramajic imprint, and he gets first stab at a release with this taut three tracker. "Hot Inside" is as unashamed a peak-time heater as Edgar has ever turned his hand to, sporting a riotous diva vocal hook and crisp house drums, but there's still a strong techno injection in the synth work and shifting phases of the track. "Strike" is a more abrasive affair with its metallic delay vibrations and relentlessly nagging jack, while "Shout" comes on all electro house in its fulsome bassline and shouty vocal snippets.

Review: Jimmy Edgar decamping on Hotflush was a tantalising move and it paid dividends with the recent release of the Detroit artist's Majenta album on Scuba's imprint. Given Edgar's recent move towards fusing his usual atmospheric, ocean-deep synth funk with greater elements of British bass music, it made perfect sense too. This follow up EP presents the tough, vocoder laden 4/4 funk of "Heartkey", but of more interest is lead cut "Let Yrself Be", a highlight from the aforementioned LP. Its stuttering, pin-sharp synths and cut-up vocals are pure Hotflush, while the clattering analogue drums recall vintage house and even noughties garage. It is, then, exactly what you'd hope for from such an intriguing artist-label hook up.

Review: As one of the hookiest slices of audio sleaze on his recent Magenta LP, Jimmy Edgar's "Sex Drive" gets the remix treatment from a choice pair of producers, getting the slick electro tones rounded into equally hot-blooded forms. Jon Convex is up first, keeping much of the essence of the original but working it into an electro house template and layering in some choice big room dynamics, while his dub mix simply ditches the vocal turns leaving the track in its raw form. John Talabot takes a thoroughly different tact, issuing forth dramatic piano tones and poised drums that turn Edgar's track into an emotionally wrought nine-minute epic.

Review: News of Detroit native Jimmy Edgar signing to Paul Rose's Hotflush imprint for Majenta, his fourth studio LP, might have come as a surprise when it was announced, but it makes gradual sense given both reside in Berlin and the increasingly broad nature of the Hotflush release schedule. On the basis of lead single This One Is For The Children, Edgar fans will be more than satisfied with what the forthcoming LP has to offer, with Jimmy showing little distaste for the smut-edged electrofunk that has served him so well to date. Sounding very much like a track that was worthy of play in Trash's heyday, "This One Is For The Children" sees Edgar intone sarcastically over a snapping mainframe and gurgling analogue arpeggio. "Switch Switch" meanwhile sashays down the same sort of doe eyed lovers future boogie that Mr Bashmore did so ever briefly as Velour.
