Beginning as ambient and dub DJs in London , their early performances were inspired by electronic artists of the s and s, most notably Brian Eno and Kraftwerk. Because of their psychedelic sound, the Orb developed a cult following among clubbers "coming down" from drug-induced highs.
Beyond recognition on their albums and concerts, his unauthorised use of other artists' works has led to disputes with musicians, most notably with Rickie Lee Jones. During their live shows of the s, The Orb performed using digital audio tape machines optimised for live mixing and sampling before switching to laptops and digital media.
Despite changes in performance method, The Orb maintained their colourful light shows and psychedelic imagery in concert. These visually intense performances prompted critics to compare the group to Pink Floyd , whose guitarist, David Gilmour , collaborated with them on the album Metallic Spheres in Alex Paterson began his music career in the early s as a roadie for the post-punk rock band Killing Joke , for whom his childhood friend   Martin "Youth" Glover played bass.
Their first release was a acid house anthem track, "Tripping on Sunshine", released on Youth's compilation album Eternity Project One. Modo Records , which they created out of a desire to maintain financial independence from larger record labels. Most often, the group played dub and other chill-out music , which it described as ambient house for the E generation.
Throughout the Orb, along with Youth, developed a music production style that incorporated ambient music with a diverse array of samples and recordings. The British music press later labelled the music ambient house. The culmination of the group's musical work came toward the end of the same year when they recorded a session for John Peel on BBC Radio 1. The track, then known as "Loving You," was largely improvisational and featured a wealth of sound effects and samples from science fiction radio plays, nature sounds, and Minnie Riperton 's " Lovin' You ".
Upon the single's release, Riperton's management forced Big Life to remove the unlicensed Riperton sample, ensuring that only the initial first-week release of the single contained the original vocals of Minnie Riperton; subsequent pressings used vocals from a sound-alike.
The group obliged and were soon offered several more remix jobs from artists including Erasure and System 7. In , Paterson and Cauty held several recording sessions at Cauty's studio, Trancentral. In it she muses on the picturesque images of clouds from her Arizona childhood. In , Paterson invited freelance studio engineer Andy Falconer to join the Orb. He was closely followed by studio engineer Kris "Thrash" Weston.
To promote the release of an edited single-disc version for an American release on Mercury Records , the Orb embarked on their first tour of the United States beginning in Phoenix, Arizona , in October In late and early , Paterson and Weston wrote their next single, " Blue Room ". Assisting with the recording was bassist Jah Wobble , keyboardist Miquette Giraudy , and guitarist Hillage.
Weston integrated his technical and creative expertise with Paterson's Eno -influenced ambience on U. Orb , combining "drum and bass rhythms" with "velvet keyboards" and "rippling synth lines".
Orb reached No. Over the next year and a half, Paterson and Weston continued to produce "new" material, and the Orb left Big Life to sign a deal with Island Records. It featured the live crew of Paterson, Weston, producers Nick Burton and Simon Phillips , as well as audio engineer Andy Hughes , who had stepped in previously when Weston had decided to stop touring.
