Jamie Odell aka Jimpster and Audiomontage has been producing, remixing and DJing for the last 17 years and co-running his Freerange Records (voted Best British Label 2007) label for the last 13 of those. His musical upbringing and early introduction to production and DJing have helped him forge a sound that is at once warm and deep as well as being innovative and 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 65 at the last count!) and co producer on a wide range of underground projects. His third Jimpster LP Amour was released 3 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 became a big underground house track sitting in the top 5 of DJ Mag’s Hype Chart for 2 months. His last 12” for Freerange was Dangly Panther, another deep house anthem which has just been nominated for Best Dance Single 2008 in the coveted DJ Mag Best Of British Awards. Recent artists to get the Jimpster midas touch in the form of a remix include Osunlade, Bob Marley, Joris Voorn, Seal, Mark Knight & Funkagenda, Marc Romboy, Solomun…. The list goes on.
Jamie has also built up his reputation as a highly regarded dj in the UK and around the world. 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 (London), Panarama Bar (Berlin), Cocoon (Frankfurt), Cielo (NYC), Yellow (Tokyo), Pacha (Ibiza), Crystal (Istanbul), GOA (Madrid) and Back To Basics (Leeds). He also runs the monthly Freerange night as his London residency at AKA.
