Various Artists Jimpster: Selected Remixes 2000-2003
- Words: Peter Nicholson
- Label: Freerange
Should've called himself Jumpster, 'cause these mixes make you want to leap all around the dancefloor, grinning like an idiot. Whether it's the classy, bossa sway of John Beltran's "Felicidad Nova" or the massive bass boom of Sista Widey's "Inspectah," Freerange boss Jamie Odell's take on nu-jazz is anything but nerdy or noodly. It's not all gravy-songs from Lisa Shaw and Blue Six are a bit too cocktail hour to keep the attention and expose Odell's perfectionist tendencies-but when Jimpster's on point, as on the infectious-like-ebola "Asma" by Smadj, his stellar drum programming and glistening hooks can't be beat.
