Jimpster is the sound of abstract electonic jazz fusion masterminded by musician, producer and Freerange founder Jamie Odell.
Having initialy recorded 3 EP’s for Freerange, Jimpster was signed by Kudos for whom he recorded his highly acclaimed debut LP ‘Messages From The Hub’. The album displays perfectly the way in which Jamie fuses live musicians and instruments with a contemporary approach to production which forms the blueprint for his Jimpster tracks.
As a leading figure in the so-called ‘Nu Jazz’ scene, Jamie has been in demand for remix and co-production projects including remixes for Lamb, Mixmaster Morris, Wai Wan, Airto Moriera as well as producing for Coldcut and co-writing with Kirk Degiorgio.
An integral part of Jimpster is the ability to perform live where, along with fellow musicians and VJ’s, they can create an experience which goes way beyond that of listening to a record. Gigs in Berlin, Lisbon, Tokyo and Dublin have all helped to gain recognition for music which blurs the boundary between jazz and contemporary club music.
