The Orb return to Belfast in October

The Orb, Friday October 2, The Limelight, Belfast

AMBIENT dance gurus The Orb are Belfast-bound once again with the announcement of a live show at The Limelight this October.

The duo of 'Dr' Alex Paterson and Thomas Fehlmann have a new album in the pipe: Moonbuilding 2703 AD is described as 'a major piece of psychedelic synth bliss, obscure loops and deep ambient textures, driven by swinging breakbeats and powerful baselines'.

"It's a solid piece of music that mutates into an eight-legged lunar Land Rover and takes off into a cosmic horizon of a million sounds, patterns and textures, explains Paterson of the beloved band's forthcoming long-playing missive, due out on June 22.

"It spins the listener on his/her head, rewiring their brains to maximum capacity, then brings them home, sweet home.

"It's inspired by this place called Earth and the idea that in the future, mankind discovers its root element in the ancient rocks on solar moons, which are based on musical harmonies that, despite being imprinted a billion light years ago, are set to the same tempo as The Orb."

Good to know, Alex.
