DESCRIPTION
 

Jimpster’s back with a new single on Freerange and it’s time to expect the unexpected!  These Times featuring Beauty Room vocalist Jinadu has all the hallmarks of a Jimpster deep house classic yet pushes things further still with the addition of a beautiful vocal, live instrumentation and masterful arrangement.

For his latest single we see Jimpster opt for a much more organic sound palette following a return to a hardware and microphone based approach to his production.  Dusting off his analogue synths and busting open the big box of percussive toys has clearly been an inspiration as we’re treated to a track that goes way beyond his more linear club tracks Alsace & Lorraine and Change In You yet without ever losing sight of the dancefloor.  Jinadu, whose second Beauty Room LP (with Kirk Degiorgio) is about to drop, has delivered a mesmerising vocal with conscious lyrics and the kind of melt your heart harmonies we’re more used to hearing on a Steely Dan track.

Up next we have Jimpster’s own Dub version of These Times which keeps the vibe intact but builds a more dramatic arrangement using layers of building vocal harmonies.  Extra energy comes from stripping back the groove and simplifying the bass parts resulting in a deep and driving track with a warm and original sound.

Finally we have a second original track in the form of Can’t Stop Loving which is about as raw and warehouse as Jimpster is likely to get.  Not from want of trying of course, but we know he just can’t help himself when it comes to bouncing basslines and lush pads always drenching his productions in a sweet soul infusion.
