Last heard of revisiting the back catalogue of Rinder & Lewis with Yo-One Sutter, re-edit young gun Florent F is back with a solo release. Japanese Edits features four reworks of rare Japanese cuts carefully selected and tweaked by this talented Frenchman. "Anata Daek No Mono" kick starts the party with its raunchy 70s grooves and melodies. From there, "Sunday Mornings" is lushly orchestrated folk-funk, "At The Zoo" is sparse art-boogie and "Jazz Orchestra" is just that - all swaggering brass, rolling bass and swell times.
One listen to the Hinge Project and it's clear that summer has certainly not ended for Florent F and Yo-One Sutter, whose new collaboration is all about the sun kissed good times. An unashamed homage to the 70s productions of Rinder & Lewis, and here on this homage we get four high-class disco edits. "Cocomotion 79" begins with the cries of seagulls, wave washes and dreamy Fender Rhodes vibes, "It's Your Last Chance" is elegant retro funk with breathy vocals and swirling strings, "Love Exciter" is a chilled groove interlude and we wrap-up with slick clavinet groove machine, "Coco Kane".
