Review

It's so impressive to see that The Orb have managed to reinvent themselves so many times, over so many years. The legendary UK outfit is now comprised of original founder Alex Paterson and long-time Kompakt member Thomas Fehlmann. The former has been involved in the project since the late 80s, while that latter has been heavily involved in the then-called 'rave' scene from about the same time, so we're talking about true veterans here. They struck up a relationship with the aforementioned Kompakt over recent years, and their latest COW / Chill Out, World! album was a brilliantly constructed work of pure ambient delight. Here, we have an artillery of remixers to inject some beats into the original mixes, starting with Alex Willner aka The Field in what is a classic Kompakt reinterpretation of "9 Elms Over River Eno", followed by Dave DK's own tech-friendly version of "4am Exhale". Veteran Jorg Burger's remix of "5th Dimensions" unleashes a kinetic flow across the sparse planes of the original cut, and minimal techno pioneer Leandro Fresco has his say on "Wireless". It's a Kompakt family affair...
