Jimpster is back with his first full EP since Porchlight And Rocking Chairs! With only a smattering of remixes for the likes of Paxton Fettel, Detroit Swindle, Till Von Sein, Cajuu and S-Man and original track Head Spin for the 200th Freerange double pack it’s been a fairly quiet time studio-wise the last couple of years. All that is about to change however with 2015 shaping up to be full of new music in various shapes and forms and under different guises.
English Rose kicks off the fresh new Jimpster biz in fine style with the most majestic of tracks, single-handedly announcing that summer is officially here. A sense of anticipation pervades as the chunkiest of disco breaks drive the track, hazy vocal pads occasionally piercing the layers of spinning echoes. We’re thinking DJ Gregory meets Walter Gibbons in a star-lit clearing of a lush rainforest on some far-flung tropical island.
Up next we have Solitude, an afro-techno soundclash infused with that trademark Jimpster sound where the devil is in the detail of this beautifully subtle and rolling groove. Seven minutes thirty seconds of complete bliss to get well and truly lost in!
Finally we have Drakkar Noir which once again attempts to hypnotize you with a relentless old-school house groove and simple, drifting synths. Distant vocals go in and out of focus as the track ebbs and flows, finally deciding to call it a day after nearly nine minutes but still manages to leave you wanting more.
