THE ORB WEEK (2)

From 1991, this post features classic single – Perpetual Dawn, including a Weatherall mix.

Paterson had worked as a roadie for Killing Joke during the ’80s, and began to be influenced by the explosion of Chicago house music in England during the mid- to late ’80s. He joined the A&R department of EG Records — the home of Brian Eno himself — and first recorded as the Orb with Jimi Cauty (who had played in the Killing Joke side project Brilliant and later gained fame as one half of the KLF). The duo’s first release as the Orb, a failed acid house anthem named “Tripping on Sunshine,” appeared on the 1988 compilation album Eternity Project One. In May 1989, the Orb released the Kiss EP, a four-tracker dedicated to — and heavily sampled from — New York’s KISS-FM. Paterson had begun to DJ in London around this time, and Paul Oakenfold recruited him to man Land of Oz, the chillout room at his club Heaven.
