The Ellameno Beat “One Of US” Background:
The Ellameno Beat’s new album, Surface, is 10 total tracks setting elements of multiple genres atop reggae-fueled roots. One of the eye-opening factors that sticks out about this debut album, aside from the music, is that the group plans to donate the first month of proceeds to the Mauli Ola Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing hope and confidence to individuals living with genetic diseases. The organization aims to “[harness] the healing powers of the ocean” and to use “surfing and ocean-based activities as natural therapies.” — That’s an incredible gesture considering the bulk of sales for most albums come in the records first month of release.
Track 2 on the album is “One Of Us” that features a more funk approach as frontman Reggie Froom tells The Pier: “Everyone in the group loves funk and soul, and we are all very enamored with the impact of call and response. As we were toasting around ideas on this song, we found a pocket that consisted of rhythmic finger picking complementing the lyrical melodies, and horn elements. As I had personally been listening to a lot of Earth Wind and Fire at the time, the disco-funk infused reggae approach just felt natural!”
The song is said to be an invitation to express yourself by shedding the weight of insecurity to just be. It’s the only song on the record to feature a 3-piece horn section and is considered to be the most soul/groove oriented. “The cadence of this song inspired me to express my honest love, belief, and commitment in the synergistic life that I have begun with my significant other,” Froom shares.
