Britain's The Orb -- a.k.a. Alex Paterson and Thomas Fehlmann are one of the most influential and most prized electronic acts to grace Kompakt. Okie Dokie It's The Orb On Kompakt is the duo's thirteenth album, and it proves to be a sonic collage of intensive, lovingly-conjured quiet ambience. The first half of Okie Dokie showcases right up front The Orb's love for minimal techno as still as water and schaffel/shuffle, while the second half is only reserved to the classic Orb-ish ancestral domain of trance-inducing, pulsating ambience. There are wonderful guest appearances by Schneider TM and Kompakt's ambient-guru Ulf Lohmann. Ever since Jimmy Cauty and Alex Paterson, in the flush of euphoria, invented Chill Out and Ambient House during that first summer of love in 1988, The Orb have brought the hum of the galaxy to living rooms and clubs like the good cosmic soldiers they are. The Orb have been working exclusively with Kompakt since 2002 and after a series of electrifying singles ("Kompassion," "Komplott" & "Komfort" ) -- the full album has finally been delivered.
