"Eyes Wide Shut" is an eclectic collection of Jimmie's explorations of electronica under the moniker Dragatis Inside the Mind.The first single from"Eyes Wide Shut" is called "Frantic" and uses its instrumental trance flavors to explore the heady energies of the sexual encounters of lovers. With its lack of lyrics, the song, of course, lends itself to many interpretations. But regardless of a listener's take on the song, it's a formidable track. Focused but filling up the space, the song segues through stages of progress, always holding to its aesthetic of trance meets technilogic inorganica meets psy meets electronic melody. It's an evolving song where time collapses into a mating of futuristic and retro-based sensibilities … a cosmos expands from sound."It's a bit of a naughty contour for sex," says Jimmie. "It seems to explain the whole 'frantic' behavior we have in a very intense and passion-driven affair with a wife or girlfriend"
Jimmie has released two new discs titles are "Hallucinations" and "Take a Bite" (just in the past month) and can be purchased through his site the following links. These recordings capture the old beginnings re-mastered and the second generation of songs displayed on the "Take a Bite". The debut album("Eyes Wide Shut") has been very well received in Europe as expected because of it's very liberal and no holds bared attitude. The third generation of songs are what you would call a new evolution of dance/trance/hip hop....Jimmie is writing for this recording presently. The fourth and up and coming recording has such titles as "Penetrating Paris" and "If it Ain't Broken Break It" is due this 2010 year, but may be pushed back.
