Simultaneously a tribute to depression and wellness, L’Orange’s ‘The World Is Still Chaos, But I Feel Better’ shows a musical and emotional growth from the North Carolina producer.
Tension is built, and released throughout the 23 track album. The album features guest narration from comedian Nish Kumar and Jeremy Scott (Cinema Sins) as well as musicians Marc Rebillet, Solmen Brigham (Marlowe) and Jeremiah Jae.
“When you’re growing up depressed, the world can feel like chaos. Then, sometimes you feel better and the world still feels like chaos.
But you feel better, and one day you realize that the world is the same as it always was….and you’re doing ok”

Dedicated to originality, L’Orange imbues his smoky, soul-soaked tracks with lush texture through inventive mixing and psychedelic cuts from classic radio recordings. A shopworn MPC and vintage vinyl are essentially paintbrush and palette for L’Orange. He finds his signature samples from pre-1950s jazz, soul and radio. He stitches together a sound that acknowledges his penchant for classic film noir and shadowy motifs.
L’Orange albums are often cinematic and narrative in structure, exemplifying the artist’s highly conceptual creative process. While L’Orange is an inspired beatmaker and highly capable producer, it is the perpetual search for beauty in the dark, unusual and forgotten corners of music that make him a true artist. Every L’Orange production is a unique, organic and undeniably original work of art, giving the listener a glimpse of the artist himself, even if obscured slightly by shadow. L’Orange.
