Documentary on UK’s Ambient House Pioneers The Orb To Premiere in London

1988 in London was very different from the Socialist Republic of Lithuania, where I saw the daylight that same year. However, everywhere in the world freedom was heavily breaking into the skulls of young people. And just as induced by the music of Pink Floyd, youth to the east of the Iron Curtain was fighting communist oppression with Rock music, youth to the West was breaking boundaries along all forms of art, fashion, self expression and especially music. 1988 in London was also the year electronic music saw the birth of ambient house music pioneers The Orb (highly inspired by Pink Floyd too). Lunar Orbit is a documentary that gives a rear view to the origins, digs into the story behind the ... Read more

Review: Rhode & Brown – Joyride EP

When thinking about electronic music from Germany, one would not immediately point in the direction garage house. Yet it is this very UK sound that Rhode & Brown try to master in their productions. Powerful uptempo house with a clear flashback to the good old days in which garage was born. Old days I can't tell you much about since I was still walking around in diapers, but when listening to Rhode & Brown's ''Joyride'' EP, you'll probably understand what I mean - even if you're aged under 25.
