The samples and beatless sounds of this first track gently ease you into that familiar headspace that lets you know you'll be led deep into a sonic trip. Recommended for psychonauts

Always keen to collaborate, ever prolific, and with his creativity as flowing as ever, Orbscure Recordings is a new vehicle for Paterson’s impressive quantity of output in different groups which runs parallel to his continued music within The Orb. Set up under the Cooking Vinyl umbrella at the suggestion of label head Rob Collins, Orbscure will also be an outlet for new music from artists from around the world. “The name is a play on the Obscure label Eno set up on Editions EG in the 1970s. Orbs Cure. Clever parrot-Orbscure! Orbscure! Orbs Cure for all ills. Orbs Cure made 2 chill,” states Alex.
Having helmed the Orb collective for over 30 years, releasing music on other people’s labels in partnership with various label managers/A&Rs, Alex now finds himself in the driving seat, coordinating an even wider group of talent. Picking up from his past experience as an A&R for the legendary EG Records, there is already a raft of new releases in the pipeline with three albums set for release this year. The label will feature artists from Uganda, Kenya, Argentina, Japan and America with further collaborative projects to follow.

After being underwhelmed by second last Orb album I wasnt expecting this tour de force. Its up there with the best. I wish to congratulate LSD for the excellent 2 CD packaging. I want more elaborate and special ly designed presentations when I buy CD and LSD certainly deliver with this fine offering. Kosmiche Raze
While tempted to call Rituals a return to form, the FSOL sound has no form & is an ever evolving sonic odyssey. Stepping in directions familiar & less so its another inspired collection of 21st century soundtrack gems! 3FR
