Orbr’s long-awaited full-length album is finally here!
Ultra Aeon contains a whopping 20 essential jungle / drum & bass bangers including remixes, previously unreleased versions, a collaboration with the legendary Ragga Twins, and the world premier of Orbr’s brand new jungle slammer Congo Menace VIP.
In 1998 I had the insanely exciting opportunity to get signed to an independent record label in San Francisco. The label, Cosmic Flux Musiq, released a handful of my songs before closing up shop a few years later.
I remastered some of those old songs, starting with the Oak St Bluesman EP from 2000. Here are those remastered tracks. I hope you enjoy! (Also see the Jeweler’s Diveremasters.)
In 1998 I recorded a song called Jeweler’s Dive. It was one of only a few jazz-inspired drum and bass tracks I made during my loungy, loungy period of the late ’90s. An edited version enjoyed a mini-celebrity on Terminal Beats, a compilation released by indie jungle Chicago outfit Forte Recordings. (Old school ruffians will remember Midwest legends 3D and Snuggles.)
If you’ve ever loved jungle, drum and bass, or happy hardcore, you’ve loved hardcore breakbeat. Hardcore is the solid trunk of early 90’s British electronica that spawned literally dozens of sub-genres, including 2-step garage, dubstep, and fidget.
