Jimpster “Amour” [Freerange Records]

The UK’s Jimpster is a DJ turned producer bringing us his third offering “Amour”. True to its title “Amour” is a celebration of love via sultry downtempo and club sounds. The album’s songs seem to flow into each other with ease, setting a mood even through the many changes in style, tempo, and energy. Some songs like “In an Analogue Way” are mellow and most definitely in the triphop or downtempo veins. Others are more upbeat or dancey, at times very electronic sounding, such as “In So Deep”, “Seventh Wave”, or “Love You Better”. There are instrumentals, but Jimpster (aka Jamie Odell) doesnt’ shy away from working with vocalists, especially on the club songs where some vocals play a more dominant role or sometimes are just atmospheric nuances. There is even a rap performed by Capitol A on “Left and Right” where Jimpster’s production easily works with the MC’s vocal. Good solid release! -Mr. Lucky
