About this item
Orange Tree Edits enlist the expertise of four deep digger extraordinaires for an excursion into the edit undergrowth. Stomping their own path through the jungle from full frontal Italo to a tribal chugfest, closing out with a slice of sultry French synth pop, Melbourne’s Hysteric, London duo Good Block and Parisian favourite Maybe Tonight take you on an island tour of the good times.
As usual Hysteric can be relied upon to deliver bassline pump and dancefloor emotion and the exquisite Italo of "Forza" tugs at your heartstrings while you cut up a rug. Next up there's a one-two combo from London's Good Block, who were last seen effin smashin it with a remix for Heels & Souls. Low tempo and loaded with bass weight, the oddball acid funk of "Mondo" is basically never gonna leave my record bag, while "Vuudu" freaks its way through chanted vocals, hand percussion and plenty of exotica idents, ripe for deployment in the mid day sun or cold of the witching hour. It falls to Maybe Tonight to close out the set, lending a louche and seductive flavour with a gloriously Gallic refix of "Pacifique".
Patrick says: The Orange Tree Edits fall well within the BUY ON SIGHT category, and this 8th volume is my favourite of the impeccable series. Bathing in Balearic and Italo favourites (my favourites!) this EP brings brilliance on every track, but I think it's Good Block's "Mondo" which wins the gold for me.
