    ‘Sup, Holms.

    What that is is an ambient house track released in 1989. For a larger introduction, check out the Wikipedia page for the song.

    The Orb are easily some of the most important musicians of all time.

    On a similar note. One of The Orb members was also a member of KLF.

    Are you saying it’s better than it sounds?

    @epicure, it’s named after (and, I believe, samples) a sound effect from the incredibly hammy ’70s BBC Sci-Fi serial “Blakes 7″. It also samples Minnie Riperton’s amazing vocal from “Lovin’ You”.

    @vytautasjanaauskas, I think nearly every musician from the ’90s UK ambient scene was in The Orb at some point!

    I got three minutes in. I get that the point of ambient house is to hellp with the comedown, and I can totally see it doing that… but I’m not sure that counts as music.
