Jimpster at HOUSEofAFRIKA
Jimpster is one of the most respected house producers and DJ’s on the scene.
His labels Freerange and Delusions Of Grandeur continue to help break incredible new music which he brings to his DJ sets all over the world.
Joining Jimpster on Thursday 27th Feb for an intimate night of Deep-Afro-Soul-House grooves at Toro Toro, is our very own Charl Chaka who will be warming things up.
As he puts it:
“House music has been my first love and passion since hearing ‘Strings Of Life’ for the first time at The Essex Barn in 1988 and I’m still inspired by the memories I have of that period when the whole electronic music scene was so fresh and exciting as well as being really broad and eclectic. One minute we were listening to Lil Louis’ ‘The Story Continues’ and the next, freaking out to ‘Radio Babylon’ by Meat Beat Manifesto. Every track seemed to have its own strong identity and unique sound and I guess that ethos is something I try and carry through to my A&R for the labels as well as my DJ sets. Certainly as a producer I am still striving to produce that perfect house track which will stand the test of time in the same way that those early classics have. The blueprint is simple: to inject life, depth, soul, sincerity and attitude. This is what sets the major players apart from the pretenders. That challenge is what keeps me focused and inspired 25 years on and I’m sure it will keep me on my toes for many years to come.”
Jimpster’s music has flowed steadily since the 90’s with releases such as ‘English Rose’, ‘Dangly Panther’, ‘A Love Like This’ and ‘Can’t Stop Loving’ continuing to be choice cuts for many DJ’s.
Jimpster continues to do his thing at globally renowned hotspots such as Output (New York), Womb (Tokyo), and Watergate (Berlin). There’s more new music and ideas flowing freely from his studio and with more than two decades of experience to draw on we see there will be loads more from this talent.
