the orb

a history of the future



Released: 7th Oct 2013


3cd & dvd boxset

Released: 7th Oct 2013


gathers together the very best of the band’s trailblazing output on island records, during the years dr alex paterson & his cohorts pushed back the very boundaries of what dance music could be.

veering from acid to dub to ambient, big beats & just about anything else that defined that most electronic of eras, the orb virtually invented the electronic genre known as ambient house, resurrecting slower, more soulful rhythms & providing a soundtrack for early-morning ravers once the clubs closed their doors. the 2cd version includes a high quality & concise collection of singles, remixes & rarities while the deluxe 3cd & dvd boxset includes live recordings & footage plus a selection of promo videos.
