Always evolving musically and cosmically, Orgone continues to connect with kindred musical spirits throughout the universe with relentless touring and the upcoming release of their fifth full-length album. Starting out as an instrumental five piece by friends with a love of funk records, Orgone cut their teeth putting their own gritty takes on cuts by the Meters, Booker T. & the MGs, Grant Green and Funkadelic among others. In 2002, the band independently released Orgone, a collection of tough, stripped-down, funk instrumentals that Relix Magazine called “intoxicating” and that quickly became a favorite of die-hard, funk fans. Orgone solidified that underground respect in 2006, adding a powerful horn section and releasing their second album, Bacano, a set of all- original, cold-blooded funk gems in the classic vein of War and Mandrill with improved, warm, organic production that matched the evolution of the band’s sound. The release of their cover of “Funky Nassau” on both 7” and 12” became a an instant dance floor classic, inspiring a club- edit by renowned DJ Danny Krivit and paving the way for The Killion Floor in 2007, Orgone’s first full-length album for the legendary Ubiquity Records.
With their critical success and tight, touring chops, Orgone has become one of the most sought- after backing bands for studio sessions. The band has flourished in the studio, appearing on the 2011 multiple Grammy winning Cee Lo Green track, “Fool For Love” and major recordings by Alicia Keys (“Teenage Love Affair, “Wreckless Love”), Estelle (“Pretty Please”), Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, and Anthony Hamilton. Orgone’s musicians have also collectively and individually toured and played with Booker T Jones, The Pharcyde, Breakestra, Keb Mo, Plantlife, Macy Grey, Pharoahe Monch, Too Short, Brett Dennan, Slick Rick, and Bun B.
