it's called organ donor because he's using a sample of a organ (somewhat similar to a piano, typically played in churches) to create the track.

Thanks, Mr. Dave. That's interesting. This may be a silly question, but why donor?

I assume it's a play on the term "organ donor", meaning a person who has decided to donate their internal organs for transplant in the event of their death. In the song, he's apparently sampling an organ so in a way the organ has been "donated" by the original performer.

Oh. I think I get it. It's a homonym, homograph, and homophone all rolled into a one little pun. DJ Shadow rules.
