David Gilmour New Album Collaboration with The Orb's Dr Alex Paterson
...with thanks to Michael Thomas on the Orb Mailing List...
Founded by 'Dr' Alex Paterson and Jimmy Cauty in 1988, the Orb became pioneers of ambient techno, forging their own chillout sound after Cauty left to concentrate on his other band, the KLF. Best known for their massive hits Little Fluffy Clouds and Perpetual Dawn, the band have continued to push the boundaries of electronic music over the last twenty years.
Following on from their acclaimed 6 Mix last year, Dr Alex Patterson plays some of his favourite dance records of all time, as well as playing and talking about the musical inspirations behind his new album Baghdad Batteries. There's also a brand new sixty minute Orb mix in the final hour of the programme.
