Deconstructed Live: Jamie Odell (Jimpster/The Bays/Freerange) DJ Set

Jamie was the first DJ to grace Deconstructed Live in a pre-launch party late July 2001, DC #0. I’d written a slew of features on his Freerange label he co-managed with Tom Roberts in the preceeding year, loved his music as Jimpster and Audimontage, and reviewed pretty much everything they’d released.

He started Deconstructed with typical panache, reflecting the label with a musically elusive set, deftly avoiding any application of convenient pigeon holing in favour of an all encompassing genre tag which saw warm Latin influenced beats shone upon by sun-kissed house. He has since had global success as part of The Bays, the acclaimed supergroup,  who have headlined Glasto, Bestival and The Big Chill.
