Melting Sand​/​Transmitter (APDLT018)

by Oregano

Melting Sand 03:28
Transmitter 03:49


Delights imprint continues its venture in way-out cinematic grooves with a debut 45 from Oregano - a new collaboration between Shawn Lee, Paul Elliott (JetTricks, Eleven76, Hot Border Special), Shay Landa (RPS Surfers) and Markey Funk.

Taking advantage of the Tel Aviv premiere of "The Library Music Film", the four minds had met spontaneously in the studio to jam together, while switching between drum-kit, bass, Vox Continental organ, a rare MinitMoog and Soviet Polivoks synths. It took another year and a global pandemic for the first tracks to start taking shape, and, with further addition of special spicing from Shawn and Paul and a flute lead by Shay's bandmate, Roey Bar Yehuda, Oregano's first slice of otherworldly sci-fi library funk has materialized:

"Melting Sand" features Paul on drums, Shawn on bass, Shay on Polivoks and Markey on organ. It's a meditative, almost krauty, slow-burner, drenched in organ drones and deep synth pulses.

On "Transmitter", the four swap places (Shawn on drums, Shay on bass, Markey on Polivoks and Paul on MinitMoog) and shift in a quirkier and more uplifting (yet still - quite out-there) direction.
