Detroit’s Jimmy Edgar was once a teenage phenom, recording for Warp, Merck, and Audio.nl, flaunting mad different styles (electro, IDM, minimal techno, disjointed, Prefuse 73-esque hiphop) with aplomb. Now releasing for renowned British imprint Hotflush and his own Ultramajic label, Edgar remains as sonically lecherous as ever. His recent output continues in the thong-snappin’ electro vein of late, thrusting into your earholes boudoir-friendly beats, soul-diva vocal samples, and libido-inflaming bass lines. The title “Sex Drive” epitomizes Edgar’s raunchy, leering groove science. With Waze & Odyssey and Nordic Soul. Q Nightclub, 9 pm, $10 adv, 21+.
