Jimpster's own productions have been uniformly outstanding, so why would anyone expect his remixes to be different? _Selected Remixes 2000/2003_ proves this without a doubt. He at once embodies the best of what Naked Music could have been (Lisa Shaw, Blue Six): deep, soulful house, with touches of jazz or breaks when necessary. But he handles tropicalia equally well (Robin Jones, John Beltran) and can shift gears into downtempo (Intelligent Jazz and OMFO) as smooth as silk. If you want upbeat dancehall, he can also do that (Sista Widey). Of particular note is his sublime mix of "Endless Bow" for Hajime Yoshizawa, a track that made the compilation circuit a few years back for good reason. Likewise, this compilation hits all the right spots, for all the right reasons.

Selected Remixes 2000/2003 is a great compilation from Jamie Odell (AKA Jimpster). Every track here is a classic. The remixes vary in style from house & downtempo to electronic jazz (as given in some of the remix titles). My personal favorites are Lisa Shaw's Let It Ride, Smadj's Asma & Switch's Get Ya Dub On. The latter has a broken beat, some cut up vocal samples and a great bassline. All in all it’s certainly a quality release.
