Orange Tree Edits are back with yet another single release from Jimmy Rouge. The Irish label has been turning heads on both the island and elsewhere with their vinyl only, DJ-friendly edits of old school rarities from across the globe.
After releasing 3 successful 12” volumes of “Afro Edits” last year, which are already becoming treasured tools for selectors as they go on Discogs for just under €50, label mainstay Jimmy Rouge has taken it upon himself to lend his magic touch to two tasteful Oriental funk and disco tracks.
“Dorian” features Japanese vocals and a catchy bassline, while Jimmy unexpectedly adds a touch of acid lines from a 303 coupled with relentless 909 high hats later on in the track. The energy gets especially hectic when the brass enters the fold towards the end. For all house DJs this cut especially is an essential in your record bag.
Things get smoother on the B-side “Clock”, a chilled out house groover with jazzy keys and guitars providing the framework for the bulk of the track. The soaring trumpets that enter around the five minute mark complete the track and heighten it’s cool factor to astronomical levels.
This release comes hot off the heels of the announcement that Jimmy will play alongside Krystal Klear upstairs in Tengu tonight as part of an Orange Tree Edits release party.
Jimmy has seen a crazy demand from fans and promoters in the country alike, with him previously playing sets for TeaParty, Cabal, Hidden Agenda (opening for Seth Troxler)and playing for Palmms in the Garden in Electric in Galway, all in the last month alone. He just appeared as a guest on Rinse France on Stefano Ritteri’s radio show, and with a slot at Belfast’s coveted AVA Festival just announced, we’re predicting that Jimmy’s first month of 2018 is just a sample of what’s to come.
