William Orbit My Oracle Lives Uptown 180g Import 2LP
Direct Metal Mastering by Geoff Pesche at Abbey Road Studios, London.
The release of “My Oracle Lives Uptown” on 180g vinyl represents an exciting
partnership between Linn, the world’s leading LP player manufacturer, and
William Orbit, the leading pioneer in the Electronica genre.
William Orbit, the Grammy Award-winning producer and composer, has been in high
demand as a producer and remixer for over a decade, most famous for working with
Madonna's 1998 "Ray of Light" album, as well as U2, Britney Spears, Pink and
Orbit's eighth album features his easily recognizable signature sound which is
sleek and lush, but leaves a cool slipstream in its wake. The double 180g vinyl
LP was mastered at Abbey Road by Geoff Pesche, a highly experienced engineer and
pressed at Pallas in Germany, a partner carefully chosen by Linn and considered
to be the best.
“My Oracle Lives Uptown” is William Orbit's most immediate album. It's so subtly
layered that it only reveals itself fully after a number of plays, whilst his
idiosyncratic vision gives his music a curiously timeless feel.
The vinyl features new, original artwork, a beautifully designed 8-page booklet
and is presented in a gatefold sleeve.
"The dreamy Optical Illusions washes over you in gorgeously drowsy electronic
waves ... Orbit has no need to reinvent the wheel - this has become his sound,
and once again it's irresistible." - 4 Stars - Mojo

|Outstanding effort. Consider these 2 discs a double album. The first disc the album proper and the second disc the tracks that nearly didnt make it on to the album, great songs in their own right but after soo much amazing music this 2nd half struggles to keep up.
Overall Orbit is peaking on this album. Pop brilliance, ambient entrancement. Flourishes of many styles of synth brilliance pepper this amazing album.
And on vinyl it is a eargasmic experience..|
