Jimpster (Jamie Odell) is a producer and DJ who founded the London based Deep House label, Freerange Records back in 1996. Jamie has a “Best Deep House Producer” award to his name along with a few more accolades. A little more future jazz than I normally listen too but enough drum n bass to keep me coming back.

Mitchel. Got a bit of a Severed Heads/Manufacture feel to them with the Industrial/House vibe. Not much know about them other than Mitchel making a brief return in 95 only to fade out again into oblivion. I have never met anyone (physically) who has the album or single so maybe this will be something new for a few. “As The World Turns” is only available on this single. Anyone recognize the chant sample in “One World”?
