Producer / Artist
Dr Alex Paterson of the legendary electronic act The Orb has long been considered to be na inventor of the genre of Ambient House, known for resurrecting slower, more soulful rhythms and providing a soundtrack for early-morning ravers once the clubs had closed their doors.
A Punk & Acid House veteran, Paterson’s career in music started in the early 1980s as a roadie for Killing Joke for whom his childhood friend Martin ‘Youth’ Glover played bass. In 2020 The Orb released 'Abolition Of The Royal Familia' adding yet another excellent album to the act's already impressive catalogue.
Spring 2023 saw the release of the excellent 'Prism' album - a mixed set of Reggae, Dub, D&B & Ambient electronica.
