Sunday Orb

Minnie Riperton’s voice features heavily on this record too, so heavily she got a writing credit for the liberal use of her very well known, multi-octave Lovin’ You. The Orb’s A Huge Evergrowing Pulsating Brain That Rules From The Centre Of The Ultraworld is a definitive slice of 1990 ambient dance dub, and to these ears The Orb’s stuff from this point sounds better and better as each year passes. Someone once wrote that this type of music at this time had a huge sense of possibility, that in the studio (often a bedroom) and on vinyl anything was now possible. As the dance scene fractured and split and people ploughed their own furroughs in the years afterwards that sense of possibility receded a bit. Written and recorded with The KLF’s Jimmy Cauty at Transcentral, this is eight and a bit minutes of open minded, open ended brilliance.
