Jimpster – Porch Light and Rocking Chairs (Album Review)

16 years in to his music career Jamie Odell AKA Jimpster, is still very much relevant in the deep house music scene. His latest offering goes a long way in proving this point. The Freerange resident has remixed pretty much anyone who is anyone however the list is distinguished. Artists receiving the Jimpster makeover include Osunlade, Jaidene Veda, Seal and Pete Doyle’s monster track What God Has Chosen.

Porch Light and Rocking Chairs ticks all the boxes where capturing the essence of deep house in a 12 track album is concerned. The album feels unrushed, a full on production which manages to balance deep house tracks such as Hold my Hand and Dance with the Pharoes alongside more chilled entries Brought to Bare, Wanting you and opening track Jasmine Dragon. Roller Girl is an epic disco infused track, arpeggiated and synth laden with distant vocals. The track would not sound out of place as part of the score for 70’s cult movies such as warriors or lost in new York. Cracks in the Pavement harks back to his earlier work, however the album as whole feels like an evolution of the Jimpster sound. Porch light and Rocking Chairs finishes with an acoustic guitar number called These Times featuring Beauty Room vocalist Jindu. This is a great curtain closer and displays Jimpster’s versatility since his last album 6 years prior. Not your typical deep house album which is exactly why it’s worth a place in your collection

    I can’t believe you did not mention the album titled track Porch light and Rocking Chairs. I cannot stop listening to this track. Basically on repeat at the moment. Infused with dreamy rifts. This track sums up the whole album perfectly!
