Reunited for the first time since 2005's Okie Dokie It's The Orb On Kompakt, Alex Patterson and Thomas Fehlmann have set about recording brand new material for this third Orbsessions installment (the last two of which have been composites of older fragments of material hauled out of the vaults). As you'd want from a new Orb release, the album is a dense flow of ambient sounds, vividly rendered by these two most seasoned of producers in the field, but there's an unexpected disco-styled twist to the record that takes hold of tracks such as 'Super Soakers' and 'Suburban Smog' that really nails the zeitgeist for ethereal dancefloor sounds and heavily layered psychedelic loops.
