The long-awaited new full-length from legendary electronic pioneers The Orb with cover design from iconic graphic wizards The Designers Republic. A fascinating sonic journey constantly switching between psychedelic flourishes and beat-driven focus.
Veritable pioneers of electronic music, iconic act The Orb returns to Kompakt with the new full-length Moonbuilding 2703 AD, another major slice of psychedelic synth bliss, obscure loops and deep ambient textures tossed in swinging breakbeats and powerful basslines. Installing a forward momentum rather unusual for a genre-defying project like this, the latest effort from masterminds Alex Paterson and Thomas Fehlmann follows their 2005 album success on Kompakt, the cheekily named Okie Dokie It’s The Orb On Kompakt, as well as several contributions to our Speicher and Pop Ambient series. But more importantly, it finds the legendary duo at the peak of its creativity, ringing in another essential phase in what can only be called a ground-breaking career.
