Biography

The Orb virtually invented the electronic genre known as ambient house, resurrecting slower, more soulful rhythms and providing a soundtrack for early-morning ravers once the clubs closed their doors. The group popularized the genre as well, by appearing on the British chart show Top of the Pops and hitting number one in the U.K. with the 1992 album U.F.Orb. Frontman Dr. Alex Paterson's ...

Editorial Reviews

Britain's The Orb -- aka Alex Paterson and Thomas Fehlmann are one of the most influential electronic acts to grace Kompakt. Okie Dokie It's The Orb On Kompakt is the duo's thirteenth album, and it proves to be a sonic collage of intensive, lovingly-conjured quiet ambience. The first half of Okie Dokie showcases right up front The Orb's love for minimal techno as still as water and schaffel/shuffle, while the second half is reserved for the classic Orb-ish ancestral domain of trance-inducing, pulsating ambience. There are wonderful guest appearances by Schneider TM and Kompakt's ambient-guru Ulf Lohmann. The Orb have been working exclusively with Kompakt since 2002 after a series of electrifying singles. Kompakt. 2005.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remember the early 90s??? March 17, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Orb was about the most inventive thing out there in Electronic music. Groundbreaking. Even the older generation of hippies knew what was going on with this stuff. You could use the Orb to either tune in OR tune out. Orb has always suprised me, most of the time in a very positive way but it was clear through the last few albums that Orb was more into production and big sound, perhaps trying to recreate the success that the song Little Fluffy Clouds brought them. Orbs best efforts sound like a far out musical stream of consciousness. It can be mello like Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld or Orbus Terrarium or hard edged and unnerving like Pommes Fritzes. Either way, the good stuff gets into your head.

Orbs' new album returns to the "organic" sound that their early albums had and relies less on production and MUCH more on effect AND cohesiveness. Definitely more analogue than digital. Definitely on the laid back side of sound.

What you dont get here is catchy tunes or memorable cuts that stick in your head forever. What you DO get from Okie Dokie is the blissed out sound that you welcome at the END of the night and from beginning to end you'll find that this is one of their better, musical concept albums, keeping you engaged no matter how much your pillow becons.

I dont think there is anything ground breaking about this effort...You've heard the genre before, but here, Orb proves that they are the modern masters of Electronic/Psychedelic music and are still capable of suprise without alarm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great addition to the Orb library November 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I thought this album was pretty good. The first time I listened to Okie Dokie, I wasn't disappointed. After the let-down album "Cydonia", I felt that with "Bicycles and Tricycles" the Orb was on its way of getting back on track. Yet, there still is that track on "B&T" with some rapping (why?). Okie Dokie revives that cool characteristic sound that we know the Orb possesses. If you are a devoted fan, you know what I'm talking about. It's a great disc that shows the latest direction the Orb is taking with music. Great beats, soothing sounds, and awesome melodies can be found. It starts out with great beats and let's you down slowly. Okie Dokie is that disc which you can put in the player and just press play.

Gotta jet. Later.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Orb Is Back! December 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are two recent Orb disks out- this one and Orb Sessions Volume 1. This is the better, more consistent collection, taking the tracks from the last several years Alex has been at the Kompact label. On Okie Dokie..., the sound is more ambient that other Orb disks- closer to the spacey Alex Patterson solo projects than the dub-oriented Orb of "U.F. Orb". Yet this album breaks new ground in creating an ambient dance sound. There is a subtlety that will engage the listener, making this a good iPod album. At one point, I thought I was listenting to an updated Tangerine Dream track called "Tangram," yet this is no throwback or copy-cat disk. Okie Dokie... satisfies my electronic ambient hunger that has developed over the last couple of Orb projects. Orbies will undoubtedly pick up both new disks, and Orb Sessions Vol. 1 has several must-have tracks, but over all I predict this one will spin in the player more often.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok Orb January 26, 2010

Format:Audio CD
Repetitious electronic grooves can get a surprising amount of mileage when thoughtful programing fluctuations compliment spacey situations- at least somewhat atoning for his passed-off previous release.

3.0 out of 5 stars I wanna go back to the future, like before August 13, 2006
By Rykre
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'll admit that I haven't paid much attention to The Orb for many years. The classics "Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld" and "U.F.Orb", remain their ultimate classic innovative projects (including the various remixes and non-commercial releases surrounding those two albums). "Live 93" got old fast because it was just repeating too much previous work, and then I tried "Pomme Fritz", "Orbvs Terrarvm", and "Orblivion" (which did have a few gems, but too many weak spots as well), and I just eventually gave up on The Orb. Many other releases followed where I only read the CD jacket but never cared to buy anymore. I played some snippets here and there but nothing really captured my attention like the first two Orb albums did.

I did give "Cydonia" a try and I even bought it ("used" of course, so I didn't really risk much). I thought "Cydonia" was okay, not the greatest, but certainly more interesting than everything from "Pomme Fritz" forward. Then I actually paid full price for "Bicycles and Tricycles". I don't know what compelled me to do that. Maybe I just wanted to make sure I walked out of the CD store having bought something. Anything!

On "Bicycles and Tricycles", Alex has recorded probably the most ignorant rap track I have ever heard. Any rap track, that sounds angry, especially from a woman, is so damn annoying!. What's more, a "rap" track doesn't belong here anyway. That's not Orb music! But anyway, that stupid song ("Aftermath") greatly reduced the appeal of the album "Bicycles and Tricycles" for me, and continues to justify my opinion that The Orb is no where's near as great as they were with "Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld" and "UFOrb".
