Naim Edge is a brave new venture into fresh contemporary music brought to you by Naim Audio, a leading British designer and manufacturer of high-end home entertainment systems. Artistic freedom, humanity and superb sound quality have been at the core of our business for thirty-five years and with the Edge label, we aim to build on these foundations to provide a platform for deserving, cutting edge, musical talent.

At Naim, we still sit down, listen to an album and enjoy it for its creative, technical and emotional merit. Naim Edge aims to tackle the homogeny of current trends by presenting the consumer with timeless alternatives. Naim Edge isn’t about a genre specific buzz. We have found bands we love, people we believe in and we will fly them as high as we can…


Phantom Limb
The Phantom Limb sound is an indefinable blend of classic southern soul and country blues. They blend modern songwriting and rich acoustic music with powerful gospel-inflected vocals. Already comparisons are being made to Mavis Staples, Aretha Franklin and The Band. Their honest, melancholic, Bristolian edge creates one of the most original and compelling new propositions of recent years. [ MYSPACE]

Jump Ship
Light and shade. Beauty and ruin. Jump Ship inject style into Trip Hop. Synthetic complexity is aligned with the acoustic nuances of cello and guitar to support an ecliptic, dark and disarming feminine vocal charm. Conflicting the classic and the contemporary, the Bath based sextet’s perfectly balanced yet authoritative glimmer of the future resonates the passive, aggressive and progressive. [ MYSPACE]


‘Bumble Bees’ Jump Ship

Bumble Bees is reminiscent of haunting, atmospheric Massive Attack-esque beats, decorated by driving electric guitars, dirty bass and slick programming. At the forefront of Bumble Bee’s infectious obscurity is Louise Coady’s strapping vocal performance. Bumble Bees has received heavy support from BBC Introducing…so watch this space!

‘whatisthisandwhy’ Jump Ship
cd107 (ALBUM)

Jump Ship’s unique sound juxtaposes the melody and rich acoustic of Folk, with angular and complex electronic and theoretical precision, brought back down to earth with a soft and identifiable feminine lead vocal. [BUY NOW...]  [Listen to an excerpt]


Swedish ambient alt-rock five-piece Jeniferever defy every musical rule in the book with their atmospheric post-prog equation. This is music for young and old, especially for fans of Sigor Ros, Mogwai, Pink Floyd or Radiohead. Naim is proud to be working with the group on the 2008 release of their ‘Nangijala EP’ in the UK and beyond. [ MYSPACE]


‘Nangijala EP’ Jeniferever

Whilst working on new material, the group from Uppsala (Sweden) couldn’t contain their love for their new tunes and released this taster of things to come. Nangijala is a 22-minute masterpiece that precipitates with serenity amongst apocalyptic electro-orchestral climaxes. Call us as indulgent as the music itself. But we heard it. And just had to release it. [BUY NOW...]  [Listen to an excerpt]
