Operating under the tongue-pleasing pseudonym of Orquesta, Dublin-based, Latin-influenced producer Orlando Fitzgerald creates the kind of swoonsome, chill-worthy electronica we’ve previously only experienced in palm tree-shaded daydreams. Criminally, the 23-year-old’s first and second releases passed without much fanfare, but EP number three, with its shimmering tribal rhythms and impossibly beachy atmosphere quickly made him the object of many music lovers’ affections. Fellow songsmiths were pretty bowled over, too. Orquesta’s great rolling cover of the 1988 Beach Boys classic ‘Kokomo’ features guest vocals from Katie Kim and Jape’s Richie Egan, while elsewhere on the EP, you’ll find a remix from expert groove-splicer Faws. Meanwhile, the Orquesta live show deserves a blurb of its own; there’s been only one so far, thanks to Fitzgerald’s highly ambitious plan to create a series of unique performances using new arrangements, musicians and venues each time.
