Mr. Mitch’s Gobstopper label follow a trio of blistering club records from Odeko, Tarquin and newcomer Lloyd SB with Orlando’s new four-tracker, ‘The Tide That Moves Me’.
Formerly known as Orlando Volcano, the moniker under which he released his debut EP, ‘Complete Concrete’, with Liminal Sounds in the summer of 2016, Orlando — like Mr. Mitch — is a producer who places emotion at the heart of his output. “My work explores themes of landscape and environment and a constant longing for the unobtainable”, he explains.
‘The Tide That Moves Me’ functions around these core threads, with the hopeful, new-age pop of the title-track, the soft, melody-rich dancehall of ‘Cyaa Done’ featuring new-school Jamaican vocalist Nemesis, and the glistening, wistful electronica of ‘The Smoke Descends’ all referencing a range of warming, open-ended emotions.
Alongside the shimmering ‘Sensory Deprivation Tank’ — a track that comes alive with sporadic drum bursts to give the EP mettle for the dance — Orlando has honed in on a sound that functions in its own, bubble-like space, illuminating gorgeous, high-level sound design and his take on future club tropes in the process.
