On Orange Tree Edits' previously releases, label honcho Jimmy Rouge and his merry band of scalpel fiends largely focused on reworking old African records. This time round, Rouge has decided to switch focus, serving up two tasty re-interpretations of what sound like Japanese tracks. A-side "Dorian" is arguably the pick of the pair for peak-time plays, with Rouge teasing out a simmering disco cut before ratcheting up the intensity via rock solid drum machine beats and a mind-altering TB-303 acid line. On the flip, he gets busy with a Rhodes-heavy jazz-funk workout, slyly adding and removing beefy new beats whilst retaining much of the languid original instrumentation.
