About the show
Playing tracks by
THE ORB .
Once a month on solipsistic NATION I feature a live performance from an electronic musician and boy do I have a treat for you today because today's is a live set from The Orb recorded at the A.B. in Brussels Septembr 25th of 2009! As an added bonus, we're also going to talk to The Orb's co-founder, Alex Paterson.
The Orb was founded by Alex Paterson and The KLF's Jimmy Cauty in 1988. The Orb began as ambient and dub DJs in London and developed a cult following among clubbers "coming down" from drug-induced highs.
The Orb has released nine studio albums to date as well as several remix albums and live albums and while there are many rotating members of The Orb Alex Paterson has always remained at The Orb's core.
I'm a huge fan of The Orb and I love all their albums so I'm thrilled to play their live set from Brussels and have Alex Paterson join us from his home in the UK!
