Inspired by the recent listening threads by Span and MIXL2, as well as my recent re-exploration of my favorite album of all time and it's satellite remixes and albums that were released along side it.
Orbus Terrarum needs no introduction for most of you, as evidenced by the many threads on it on this very forum. (But if you haven't heard it, please do so...
To me, what LX, Thomas, Andy, and Kris accomplished during the years of 93-97 was nothing short of spectacular. Despite "the band" dealing with a variety of dysfunctions (including Alex's tendency to leave people's contributions off writing credits), they managed to create a dubbed out, organic, lush soundworld unlike any I have ever heard.
Loose rules are: please share literally any track that touches you from any artist (Orb or otherwise), that has contributed to Pomme Fritz, Orbus Terrarum, and Orbivion (golden era). Then explain who made it and why it gives you the feels.
I'll drop a gem or two each day (reply or no). Feel free to comment or share your own favorite gems from this era. Guess what, everyone wins!
Since it is the thread title, I will start with this mix of the classic song by Can. Halleluwah Orbus (as far as I can gather by discogs and the liner notes I have), was written by Patterson, Hughes, and Fehlmann and released in '97. The Orb literally morph Jaki's drumming into a pulsating, teutonic fun-house mirror techno that lulls you into a trance by the end of its runtime.
This is the long-awaited reissue of 1981 debut album of seminal german post-punk band Palais Schaumburg.
Among the band members: Moritz von Oswald (Basic Channel, Rhythm & Sound), Thomas Fehlmann (The Orb), Holger Hiller etc.
