A blend of beauty and circuitry hides a hint of danger in this techno-infused love letter to 2000-era jungle legends Ed Rush & Optical. Sharp FX and angular chords circle a hard acoustic funk break while an 808 bass warbles under the surface. Shit gets ridiculous in the bridge when Cindy busts a fuse and all techno hell breaks loose. Talk about beauty and the beast… she’s both.
Twinkling keys and sparkling CR-78s break the locks while a jazz band plays for the clueless guests in the courtyard below. Watery analog pads keep watch as crystal clear breaks rifle through drawers and crack open the safe. Finally deep sonic wubs bag the goods and disappear across moonlit rooftops with a fistful of diamonds. The jungle cat burglar strikes again!
Now boarding all VIP passengers for Orbr’s melodic jungle slammer Uptakes! Buckle up and prepare for close encounters with a swarm of fierce bass warbles, endless classic breaks, shimmering pads, smooth liquid vocals, and throwback rave samples. Let’s get high!
I’m thrilled to announce that Turquoise Rush, the latest single of my drum & bass project Orbr, is out today!
Turquoise Rush showcases Orbr’s dive into the deeper side of drum and bass. On the horizon: furious vintage breaks, pulsating analogue bass drops, twinkling pads, a breathtaking African choir, and lush underwater FX make for a unique and unforgettable coastal jungle experience. Includes Lazy Couture’s absolutely gorgeous 80s freestyle remix.
I’m thrilled to announce that Drunken Noodles, the latest single of my drum & bass project Orbr, is out today!
On the menu tonight: wavy analog pads, tinkling bells, barely-controlled growlers, chonky kits, world instruments, and space-age FX weave and hustle throughout Orbr’s high-octane summer slammer Drunken Noodles, a dense and complex liquid joint with distinctly international flavorings and more than a few rough edges. Once again Orbr kicks across subgenres and offers the listener a fresher-than-fresh take on the drum & bass experience. Come get a bellyful!
Orbr’s debut EP Cold Steps invites the listener to experience the minimal techno side of drum & bass. All three songs — Cold Steps, Detroit Horizons, and The Big Rip-Off — occupy a sparse and technical landscape without sacrificing the dimensional depth and innovative production skills that Orbr fans have come to expect.
Surprises hide behind every corner: vintage vocoders, glistening analog pads, jittery 303s, and throwback MC scratches all pay homage to the birthplace of techno while keeping a firm eye on the future of DNB. This one’s for Detroit!
The Cold Steps EP is available everywhere fine music is sold. You can also hear it on Orbr’s Bandcamp, YouTube, and SoundCloud channels, and of course you can stream or download any Orbr song at orbrsounds.com!
Vacillating between atmospheric jazz and manic breaks, Categories takes the pieces apart and puts them back together in unexpected ways.
Wind instruments and electric pianos collide with growling analog basslines, pitched-up vocals dodge sizzling vintage drum kits, a live band hijacks the breakdown, all while the Duke asks us: why does it have to have a category?
