Los Angeles based band Orgone is many souls with a cosmic connection, a natural creative force and musicians who have played together for years. They are self schooled and continue to shape their musical voice as a solid unit of guys who hang, spin records and jam out their shared inspirations. With a rooted sense of funk, soul, afrobeat, deep rhythms and an intimate understanding of dj culture as well as each others' individual talents, Orgone seamlessly slides through multiple styles and dynamic performances. The group continuously injects whatever they play with a heavy brand of raw funk power.
At the core of the band is a rhythm section comprised of close friends who have played together for more than 10 years. Having grown artistically as a unit they function as one organic and intuitive whole. The orginal 5-member band started out by putting their own gritty takes on tunes by the likes of the JBs, the Meters, Booker T. and the MGs, Grant Green and Funkadelic among many others. They quickly gained underground respect and die hard fans. With their searing live sets and original instrumentals, Orgone soon released their debut self titled CD, "Orgone," in 2002. The result was a collection of all original down home, transcendental, tough and gritty funk instrumentals.
The band fast grew to include a powerful three-piece horn section and a fiery soul singer who all shared the same spirit and deep reverence for the music that inspired them. Singer, Fanny Franklin, joined the groups' recordings after they were floored seeing her perform with Dakah, the 30-piece hip hop orchestra, and asked her to record with them. Their first recording together, Orgone's cover of "Funky Nassau", became a ubiquitous DJ fave worldwide- first appearing on 7"(Nuff Rope) and then getting a 12" club re-edit by renowned dj Danny Krivit (Nuff Rope). It then appeared on Ubiquity's Rewind Volume 4 comp, which began the band's relationship with the prestigious label.
Gaining worldwide recognition for their raw studio recordings and exciting live sets led to the release of "The Killion Floor" on Ubiquity records- a full length album of hard hitting afro-soul & funk from the 9 piece band. While enjoying comparisons to classic acts like Rufus, War & Mandrill, or modern funk staples like Sharon Jones or Breakestra, they're quick to point out that Orgone is unique.
"..an ultra-funky intertwining of infectious grooves with melodic phrases, even when they are at their most experimental. Despite the music's complexity, it remains uncluttered and spacious...If you are into classic funk like Parliament Funkadelic, the Meters ...you should find Orgone intoxicating. In addition to the funk, R&B and jazz elements, the band exhibits an adventurous rock 'n' roll twist...This is one hell of a band."
- RELIX magazine
Analog Son was created by Jordan Linit (Kinetix/Ableminds) and Josh Fairman (Kinetix) in 2013 around a studio project involving the Shady Horns, Ryan Zoidis and Eric Bloom (Lettuce/Soulive), Joe Tatton (New Mastersounds), Adam Deitch (Lettuce/Break Science), Mike Marlier, Joey Porter (Motet/Juno What?!), and Joel Scanlon. The debut album to be released this fall was recorded over the past 8 months at Scanhope Sound on the finest vintage equipment and tape machine available to fuse vintage tones with modern production and musicianship. Josh and Jordan called upon their funkiest friends to create music together on the spot in the studio that reflected all of the individuals at the session. They are already working on material for a follow up release.
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."
