Orgōne

Orgone (Orgōne). Noun. 1. A universal life force. 2. A cosmic unit of energy. 3. The creative
force in nature.

Now and always, Orgone delivers dirty, organic, California soul with heart; music that grabs you by the collar, pulls you to your feel and shoves you wantingly onto the dance floor. It all started with two kids from the San Fernando Valley, whose shared affinity for gritty soul records of the 60s and 70s collided with the colorful music cultures brewing in Los Angeles during the late 90s. Orgōne is adrenaline-fueled funk and sweat-dripping soul.

Monophonics

Raised amid the rich musical culture and history of the San Francisco Bay Area, Monophonics proudly carry the torch through the generations into today’s musi-cal landscape. Holding on to tradition, but by no means purists of any kind, they play their own brand of music known as “Psychedelic Soul.” Touching on Northern soul, doo-wop, rock and roll, Psych pop, and cinematic music, Monophonics show off their diversity while re-maining true to their roots. Overall it’s heartfelt music and old school vibes, with-out losing sight of the present. FUNK YES.
