The Orb

Midnight ravers greeted by “A Huge Ever Pulsating Pain that Rules from the Center of the Ultraworld” in the wake of a long night out understood – felt – that when the cock crows, one knows that after the party it’s the Orb. As England came down from Thatcherism, the Orb pioneered ambient house by slowing down Chicago house and adding ambient synth textures gleaned from the likes of Brian Eno.  After joining the A&R department of Eno’s label, Dr. Alex Paterson, a veteran of Killing Joke, released the Orb’s first project as a duo with Jimi Cauty, a veteran of Killing Joke side project Brilliant. In 1989 the Orb released the aforementioned “A Huge Ever…”, which demonstrated a love of weaving diverse samples under the ebb and flow of synth waves. After Cauty’s departure, and personnel juggling, the Orb released their classic first album, The Orb’s Adventures Beyond the Underworld, in 1991. Through several other personnel and even aesthetic iterations, the Orb has been lighting up early mornings ever since.
