Boomkat Product Review:
Jimmy Edgar beckons your ears for a 4th album of electrosexual funk fired up with his signature flair. 'Majenta' is also his most mature, greasiest effort to date; composed with a learned understanding of original Electro, House and Techno functions borne of steamier Detroit 'floors, but with a debonaire's taste for slicker, modern European electronics. Teasing in with the 313 2-step of 'Too Shy', he cycles through 13 taut positions, from the simmering electro-house of 'This One's For The Children', to the crunk lean of 'Sex Drive' and the hyperfrisky hipwork of 'Indigo Mechanix (3D)', and taking a moment to compose himself on 'Attempt To Make It Last'. 'Let Yrself Be' is a slice of positivist mid '90s House revisionism, and 'I Need Your Control' makes smouldering Prince eyes, for the liquified, slowfast silicon bounce of 'In Deep' to beg for more in his most pleading vocoder tones. Bonus cuts include his previous single 'Switch Switch' and the dirtily infectious Jersey swing of 'U Need Love'.
