For over a decade, Orgone has been steaming up nightclubs and drenching the largest music festivals in the country in sweat. Serving a cold-blooded concoction of deep soul, rare funk, and afro-disco with a raw rock star edge that is uniquely LA, Orgone’s music grabs you by the collar, pulls you to your feet, and shoves you out onto the dance floor. Tough, sexy, and adventurous, this sonic muscle car shifts through multiple gears from slyly slinky to seismically cinematic, while remaining spacious and uncluttered. eMusic says: “Their music is terrifically unfussy, big slabs of grizzled R&B, greasy as fatback, and thick as a very particular kind of smoke.” For their searing live performances and warm, dirty homegrown recordings, Orgone has been called “One of the heaviest acts we’ve heard in years” by Dusty Groove America.
The band is a symbiosis of eight seasoned musicians, at the core of which are keyboardist Dan Hastie and guitarist Sergio Rios who started creating classic sounds as green teens brought together by a mutual affinity for raw soul recordings. Members of Orgone have collaborated/performed with the Roots, Al Green, Gil Scott-Heron, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Breakestra, Thievery Corporation, and the Monophonics. As tight in the studio as they are on stage, …as the backing band on Cee Lo Green’s multiple Grammy Award-winning track “Fool for You” and Alicia Keys’ “As I Am” album.
Up front and unmistakable is Adryon de Leon, Orgone’s lightning rod, whose hearty, agile vocals are an intoxicating foil to the gritty intensity of the band. Orgone is currently getting their hands dirty in KillionSound, their Fortress of Soulitude, injecting the pure, passionate heat of their live sound into wax. Throughout this year, the band will maintain a strong touring presence while tantalizing crowds with new material from their upcoming album, which will be released into the wild in the Fall of 2014.
After 17 years of musical camaraderie, Jordan Linit (Kinetix/Ableminds) and Josh Fairman (Kinetix) have created Analog Son.
Based around a studio project involving The Shady Horns (Soulive), Joe Tatton (The New Mastersounds), Ivan Neville (Dumpstaphunk)
and Joey Porter (The Motet/Juno What?!) as well as some of Denver’s finest local talent (members of The Congress, Fox Street All Stars, Kinetix, Rebel Tounge, Devon Parker, Convergence) Analog Son will released their self-titled debut in the spring of 2014.
“some funky, trippy jazz-funk from an awesome set of players.”- Joe Tatton
This funky brainchild was born at Scanhope Sound in fall 2013. While Josh and Jordan had conceptualized this project for years, much of the composition was impromptu as each guest musician brought their own unique brand of artistry to the table stirring up a sizzling musical melting pot.
Their first single, “Analog Island” showcases the unmistakable articulation and harmony of Ryan Zoidis and Eric Bloom(The Shady Horns) as their melodies naturally integrate with Josh and Jordan’s rhythmic chemistry and vision to create a fresh funk-fusion project.The end result takes advantage of modern production and technology while using the finest vintage equipment and tape machines to fuse together both classic engineering and modern musicianship.
This studio finesse translates effortlessly into the live setting. In their short existence, Analog Son has supported The Funky Meters, Trombone Shorty
& Orleans Avenue, The New Mastersounds and Orgone at some of Colorado’s premiere venues. Live audio engineer, Joe Michaels (The Rolling Stones; Larry Graham; Blood, Sweat and Tears), immediately remarks on the authentic funk revival Linit and Fairman have managed to pull off. He states that “mixing these guys is like pure funk heaven....reminds me of my Larry Graham days!”Analog Son’s debut album will be available April 1, 2014 and the CD release party will take place at Cervantes’ Other Side on March 28 with special guests.
The Recovery Act
"Some often say that timing is the key to life. For The Recovery Act, a premiere Denver band that specializes in soulful funk music blended with a vast array of additional influences, this statement means everything. Composed of an eclectic mix of individuals who all embraced the common ambition of creating an amazingly fun and diverse band,The Recovery Act was born through complete chance and spontaneity—a band ‘Blind Date’ more or less. Yet what began spontaneously one afternoon quickly developed into a unified, powerful force andThe Recovery Act continues to gain recognition as a band of immense talent and unlimited potential. Driven by the soul shivering vocals of Lindsay French, the band is as equally equipped to play a dance inspiring groove as a heart-grasping ballad. Each member of the group contributes a unique and valuable component to the success of band—Christian Mockett on Guitar, Tyler Olmsted on Bass, Adam Segalis on Drums, Jeff "Bird Dog" Lane on Percussion and Adam Williamson on Keyboards. With the perfect blend of crafty, yet accessible songwriting and superb musicianship, The Recovery Act gains new fans on a daily basis and leaves old fans wanting more. The band is currently working on material for a new album and will be playing shows extensively throughout 2013."
