Born and raised in east Detroit, Jimmy Edgar played raves in the city alongside techno's founding fathers during his mid-teens. By age 18, after conducting ambitious recording experiments, he'd signed to Warp Records. Edgar later established the Ultramajic imprint with fellow electronic auteur Aden. Fresh material from the label provides the backbone for FabricLive 79, and selections from Patrice Scott, DJ Godfather & DJ Starski, and Kris Wadsworth thread the music of Detroit through the mix like a seam. Also includes tracks by Edgar (including a collaboration with Truncate and a track featuring DJ Rashad), Terrence Dixon, POL Style, Vin Sol & Matrixxman, L-Vis 1990, Danny Daze, and Crystal Bandito. Packaged in bespoke slipcase containing die-embossed tin.
