Another friend doing amazing things this week is my “BEST FRIEND 2010” – Orlando Volcano. Orlando upped and left for NYC about a year ago now, where he changed his name and seems to be spending his time honing his skills as a mega awesome producer. Today sees the launch of his debut EP, Nice To Meet You. It is beautiful, with tropical sounds and light airy sounds and all kinds of other nice sounds. I would tell you more but he sent me the press release and I liked it so much I’m just going to copy it here instead.
Orlando Volcano Biography.
Orlando is a young man from Europe who lives in New York. He has been living in the USA for almost exactly a year.
Orlando used to make music under the name Orquesta, but whereas Orquesta was a stylized project, his new moniker; Orlando Volcano encompasses all the musical styles he makes.
His debut EP, Nice To Meet You, displays some sounds that he plans to explore. The EP is a year in the making, containing songs started more than a year ago, as well as songs started less than a couple of months ago. Its a perfect balance, hinging on the past and future of this young musician’s career.
2013 saw Orlando (as Orquesta) partaking in the Red Bull Music Academy in New York as well as appearing on the Benji B show in London. But 2014 is looking to up the ante, already seeing a number of high profile collaborative projects that are yet to be announced, as well as a European tour taking shape.
Apart from music, Orlando enjoys spending his time taking long walks, sharing a meal with a loved one or enjoying a good film.

P.S. He’s not lying about the food, the movies or the walks.
