Ambient electronica for the masses.
The Orb virtually invented the electronic genre known as ambient house, resurrecting slower, more soulful rhythms and providing a soundtrack for early-morning ravers once the clubs closed their doors.
Founded in 1988 by Alex Paterson and The KLF member Jimmy Cauty, membership of The Orb has been fluid over the years, with Paterson remaining the only constant throughout.
The Orb released their fifteenth studio album, ‘No Sounds Are Out of Bounds’, on 22nd June 2018 via Cooking Vinyl.
These fifteen albums plus EPs, singles, compilations and live recordings have influenced countless other musicians along the way.
