From The Orb newslist:
The Orb - Special Late Live Show - Saturday 15th March @ Electric, Brixton
- Live DVD to be recorded
Electronic godfathers The Orb are riding the crest of a new wave that started in 2012 and continues into 2014. Hot on the heels of two critically acclaimed albums with Lee Scratch Perry and the chart-topping box set ‘History Of the Future - The Island Years’, the duo set off on a set of dates that has seen them circle the globe. This word tour included a string of headline, big venue US shows – proving the Orb’s lasting stateside influence as a bastion of quality electronic music, amidst the current EDM craze.
The Orb will be bringing some high profile friends with them, in the shape of fellow purveyors of sonic excellence - Abbey Road Studios, who are filming and recording the gig for a forthcoming Orb live DVD using Abbey Road’s Live Here Now service.
An Electric Brixton packed-full of seasoned space cadets and fresh-faced new recruits in equal measures gave the band a rapturous, hollering reception, following a thunderous, bass-heavy sonic journey, accompanied by a mind-expanding spectrum of visuals. The Orb enjoyed the gig so much, they’ve decided to return to Electric Brixton on March 15th – this time extending the fun into an all-nighter. For anyone lucky enough to have caught previous Orb live extravaganzas in their spiritual south London home, joining the party is a no brainer. And, for anyone yet to beam aboard the mothership, this promises to be a night that’s talked about for years to come, and a chance witness theses early pioneers of live dance music still blazing a mighty trail.
