RA goes beatless: The Orb provide a chillout podcast to start off 2009.
The first line of The Orb's Wikipedia entry pretty much says it all: "The Orb are an English electronic music group known for popularising chill out music in the 1990s." For much of the decade—and on into the '00s—the group has been among the preeminent purveyors of ambient house, stitching together little fluffy clouds and perpetual dawns that seemed to stretch out into forever.
So, as revelers continue to come down from the after-effects of marathon New Year's Eve parties, we thought it only made sense to go to the source for the ultimate club music detox soundtrack. Ambient to its core, The Orb have put together a slow-moving (and mostly beatless) podcast for RA that should bring you gently into 2009—and get you ready for the year to come. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ultraworld.
