Jamie Odell aka Jimpster and Audiomontage has been producing, remixing and DJing for the last 19 years and co- running his Freerange Records (voted Best British Label 2007) label for the last 15 of those. His musical upbringing and early introduction to production (his first release was on UK label Jumpin’ & Pumpin’ in 1990) and DJing have helped him forge a sound that is at once warm and deep as well as being innovative and also club friendly.
His seminal Jimpster LP Messages From The Hub (1997), as well as his more dancefloor orientated Audiomontage 12”s really helped establish Jamie as an artist of some merit and he quickly became in regular demand as a remixer (over 75 at the last count!) and co- producer on a wide range of underground projects. His third Jimpster LP Amour was released 4 years ago on Freerange to excellent critical acclaim and appeared in numerous published Top 20 LP’s of the year charts. In recent years he has released his first original track for another label, choosing Ben Watt’s Buzzin’ Fly for Square Up which went on to become a big underground house track of the year.
His last 12” for Freerange was Sleeper, another deep house anthem which was nominated for numerous Best Dance Single Awards as well as sitting at the top of the Beatport charts for a month. Recent artists to get the Jimpster midas touch in the form of a remix include Josh Wink, Photon Inc, Osunlade, Bob Marley, Joris Voorn, Seal, Marc Romboy, Solomun…. The list goes on.
Over the past 5 or 6 years Jamie has built up a reputation as a highly regarded dj in the UK and around the world, having played over 100 gigs last year alone. With an emphasis on the deeper end of electronic house music, but not afraid to stray from the path, he retains an old school approach that has seen him booked for gigs as diverse as Fabric and Matter (London), Panarama Bar and Watergate (Berlin), Cielo (NYC), Warehouse 702 (Tokyo), Zoo Project (Ibiza), D-Edge (Sau Paulo), GOA @ Fabrik (Madrid).
