Orgone
Los Angeles, California Funk, Soul, Afrobeat

Orgone’s first independent album Released 2001

Orgone first appeared on Ubiquity with their cover of “Funky Nassau” (on Rewind Volume 4), which became a ubiquitous DJ fave worldwide. The Los-Angeles-based band’s reputation amongst the funk and soul fraternity is backed-up by an impressive and quickly growing resume that is expanding their reach. This includes landing a spot in an Adidas campaign, touring with major-label crew Little Brother, and going out as backing band for The Pharcyde, Bun B, Pharohe Monche, Plantlife (including a BBC performance for Jools Holland), Tone Loc, and New Orleans funk legend Eddie Bo at the Hurricane Katrina benefit. Members of Orgone also feature in the make-up of Ubiquity acts Connie Price, the lions, and Breakestra and perform regularly at the Root Down in LA.

At the core of the band is a rhythm section comprised of close friends who have played together for over 10 years. Growing artistically as a unit they function as one organic and intuitive whole and, while they enjoy the comparisons to hot acts of the moment like Amy Winehouse, or funk staples like Sharon Jones or Breakestra, they’re quick to point out that Orgone is unique, “We draw from a wider musical and production palette than a lot of the ‘60’s inspired music that’s making a resurgence,” explains band-member Sean O’Shea. “It’s not intentional; it’s simply a reflection of the music and production aesthetics that we love.
