The innovative and pioneering band The Orb may have been around since the very early days of dance music, but they’re still wowing the crowds with a series of gigs across the UK this year. The Orb invented the ‘Ambient House’ sound with a complex fusion of electronica, and today their sound is still as fresh and original as it was back in the 1980s. If you’re an Orb fan, or are curious to find out what pure, unadulterated Ambient House should sound like, then fortunately The Orb concert tickets are now available.
Drawing their inspiration from the great Brian Eno and ‘70’s experimental outfit Tangerine Dream, The Orb set out in 1988 to offer a more chilled out, relaxing alternative to the break-beat dance of the all-night Rave scene. This was music to listen to after a long night of intense dancing - silky-smooth tunes that fused Electronica and Dub into a seamless, flowing and remarkably complex sound. Their 1992 album U.F.Orb hit the number one chart spot, propelling Ambient into the wider public audience. It was an instant hit, and Alex Paterson and KLF member Jimmy Cauty became overnight sensations.
The Rave scene moved on through the years, but The Orb were always there in the background, producing intense and haunting tracks that appealed to all of those who were there at the beginning of the Rave culture. A steady succession of releases from that seminal U.F.Orb album of 1992 through to the most recent 2015 ‘Moonbuilding 2703AD’ show that the band is still as innovative, fresh and original today as they were nearly thirty years ago. If you want to take a trip down Ambient Dub memory lane, or if you’re just discovering the joys of this complex and elegant genre, then make sure you pick up your The Orb tickets from Gigantic.
This year sees them tour extensively, and you can catch them at Cardiff’s Tramshed, SWX at Bristol, Newcastle Riverside, Invisible Wind Factory at Liverpool, Concorde 2 at Brighton and O2 Academy Sheffield during October 2018.
