Morillo Combines Drums & Music Production to Create Fresh “Shades of Green” LP

Drumming and music production have always lived in separate worlds of Morillo’s musical
journey. Taking a big step in tethering the two together, Morillo returns to Gravitas Recordings
with his latest album, Shades of Green. During quarantine, Morillo prioritized the ability to
properly record and incorporate acoustic drums into his production from his Los Angeles
studio. From there, he dedicated his energy into tuning and refurbishing his drum kit, acquiring
necessary recording gear, and learning engineering skills to translate it into production. The
result was a fresh aesthetic diverging from strictly electronic sounds, empowering a live and
more human aspect to his music.

Shades of Green is a hypnotic, handmade small-batch record that dives deep into organic soundscapes to move listeners spiritually and physically. “Badmon Sound” plunges into the depths of wicked acoustic territories as sirens apprise their warning. Featuring Evan Hatfield on Sitar, the two whisper deep “Secrets” into the cosmos before Meg Gardner closes the tune with original spoken word poetry. In collaboration with
Canadian bass producer PRZM, “Champion Sound” is a lush excursion through funky reggae territories. Los Angeles singer Talia Bentson soon whisks listeners to an ethereal, yet dark “Dreamland.” Ticking clocks precede a royal dubby coronation in “King of Kings.” Title track “Shades of Green” inhabits a meditative jungle, isolated from the busy metropolis. Featuring Los Angeles producer DanniG, “One$$” delivers fresh soundscapes between dominant bass waves and electrifying drum patterns. Heartfelt and zestful energy in “Rain and Mist” hydrates nature’s spirits, concluding the vibrant album.
