Asynchrone: Plastic Bamboo

French electro jazz sextet Asynchrone have made a sunny side up version of Ryuichi Sakamoto's Plastic Bamboo, making it sound like a track from a late 60s movie filmed at the French Riveira about a couple getting into trouble with some sketchy types. On top of a punchy synths and drums they added layers of traditional instruments, with the flute and piano leading the way. It is the title track of a full album of reworkings of the material of the Japanese composer and electronic music pioneer.

Plastic Bamboo is released via Nø Førmat. The full album will be released on September 29.

Clément Petit: cello
Frédéric Soulard: synths
Hugues Mayot: saxophones, bass clarinet
Delphine Joussein: flutes
Manuel Peskine: piano
Vincent Taeger: drums
