May 13th marks the release of new single from the Orb featuring Lee Scratch Perry - ‘Ball Of Fire’ - a slamming, positive dub house anthem adorned with the Upsetter’s ebullient lyrical flow.‘Ball Of Fire’ precedes, the release of new album, ‘More Tales From The Orbservatory’, the follow-up to last year’s stellar collaboration between The Orb and long-time inspiration Lee Scratch Perry; ‘The ORBSERVER In The Starhouse’.
Unsurprisingly the sessions for that album produced more music than one CD could handle, so Scratch, Alex Paterson and Thomas Fehlmann are returning in fine style with this new album. Released June 3rd on Cooking Vinyl, the set features further excursions from last year’s sessions at the Starhouse studio in Berlin, plus new instrumental versions.
Ball Of Fire Comes complete with a killer selection of dubwise remixes from like-minded low-end explorers Dabrye, Deadbeat and Mad Prosessor, with the latter two delivering both vocal and dub versions.
If that wasn’t reason enough to get excited, as a warm up to their forthcoming 25th anniversary celebrations, The Orb return to the location of their first ever gig to perform their seminal first two albums; ‘The Orb's Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld’ and ‘UFOrb’ in their entirety. Expect Electric Brixton to be transformed into a mind- expanding, other-worldly visual realm, coupled with cavernous levels of low-end sonic science.
