bmbmnd has a Soundcloud page of its own, you can probably find them there.

Why would the tracklisting be elsewhere? Unless these are all his own tracks or something. Soundcloud is notorious for not having tracklistings unfortunately.

It wouldn't. But the podcast page says they got a set from the guy, so I'm assuming they are all his own tracks. Unless it's something he whomped up specially for them, I'd also assume they're somewhere on his own page.

I figured it was just a regular mix, but I'll take a look at his tracks, thanks.

edit: nothing matches up, so it's just a regular mix. oh well.

Muslimgauze is really good. It's good for exercising since the beat is so strong. I'd call it ambient but it's a very driving, heavy handed ambient.

Those first four Orb albums are so good but I think Orblivion might be my favourite. Maybe a tie with U.F.Orb. It's a shame they fall off Cydonia going forward. I'm doing a discography binge and I'm going to see if there's anything special about their lesser popular albums.

Someone just turned me on to Rameses III and woooow. Super ambient, instrumental. Very atmospheric. https://open.spotify.com/album/2cCL44jj1J9yIIBQ7rCsjr

Like a hundred crippled horses lying crumpled on the ground

What do you call this music genre? Looking for something that would help me track down music similar to it since "experimental" or "ambient" is too broad.

I would maybe file it under minimalism or glitch adjacent? I tried looking at Ishkur's guide (https://music.ishkur.com/) but he doesn't break ambient down enough to really get to a perfect answer. If anyone has a better idea I'd be interested, too. Because I really like that style. Reminds me a bit of Clark.

My favorite Orb album is the Live 93 album. Unfortunately only a few tracks are on Spotify (for me). There's a playlist on Youtube of the album tracks but even most of them are unavailable in the U.S. (where I am). I spent a lot of very weird nights in high school listening to Live 93 and Lifeforms (and ISDN) by Future Sound of London.

It's got the best version of Fluffy Clouds -

It's an amazing live album. So very surreal and psychedelic. I can only imagine what actually being at that show in that era would have been like. I can't get it on Spotify either. My guess is that the ridiculous amount of unauthorized sampling all over it is what's cratering the streaming. Their U.F. Off compilation is similarly neutered, and the version of U.F.Orb that has the 40 minute "full" version of Blue Room is nowhere to be found.

That's because the 39:59 version of Blue Room was only released as a single. It was deliberately made that length because if it was 40 minutes long it would be classified as an LP, and they wanted to get it into the singles chart.

I saw them live in 1995 (I think) in Atlanta and it was a ton of fun. I had a copy of my ticket stub up until a few years ago when I lost the photo album I was keeping it in

What was that scene like in '95? I mean, was it a huge venue or just a small room in Atlanta? Did they have any Visuals or was it just strobes and those two dudes with some gear? Was Fehlman still with them then? My memory is super muddy from that time, but was that when MTV was starting to jump on the "electronica" train and Chemical Brothers blew up in the mainstream? I was working at a record store in the burbs around then, but probably only knew of The Orb from "Little Pink Fluffy Clouds" because it was everywhere.

I thought The Orb and Orbital were the same for an embarrassing length of time (I love In-sides)

They played at the Masquerade, which was the biggest venue in Atlanta that wasn't a major arena type space. Wikipedia says the main concert area held 1,000 people. A band like Chemical Brothers would have played there back then. It was where most "alternative" acts played in Atlanta (I saw Ween there in 1994, another highlight). The Masquerade had three levels consisting of Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory. Heaven was where bands would play, Hell was a dance club, and Purgatory (if I recall correct) was more of a pool hall/lounge type bar. Oddly The Orb played in Heaven instead of Hell. I saw a ton of shows in Heaven but I never had reason to go into Hell or Purgatory. I was tripping the night I saw The Orb so my memory is pretty fuzzy and I'm not sure of the personnel that night or if there were much visuals aside from the lights of the club.

Most of the electronic stuff I was into back then was pretty mainstream as far as the scene was concerned back then - acts like Rabbit in the Moon, Chemical Brothers, 808 State, Orbital, The Shamen, The Orb, Future Sound of London, Pop Will Eat Itself (and a bunch of industrial stuff like Ministry, Nine Inch Nails, Pigface, Thrill Kill Kult, Skinny Puppy, and so on).

Two or three years later, starting around 1997 the jungle scene really exploded and everyone was listening to that stuff. That's when I started to go to raves and I was listening to nothing really except jungle music. Breakbeat was big too and we would get cool acts from Florida coming up to Atlanta like DJ Icey and Baby Anne.

In-Sides is easily my favorite from Orbital, although "Halcyon On + On" will forever hold a nostalgic spot in my heart. My CD of that album came with a bonus disc that included the "full" version of "The Box" (really it was just four cohesive remixes) but was always super fun when we were day tripping.

The live version of halcyon with the bon jovi/belinda carlisle mixing is pretty fun.

My fav is still “The Girl with the Sun in Her head” only because it instantly transports me back to listening to it on long bus commutes during summer work terms on my discman.

I've probably listened to Lifeforms five times now and I've grown to like it as someone who just had it on in the background and let it wash over me the first time I listened. That live version of Little Fluffy Clouds is transcendent too. Might hav to find Live 93.

They gelled together in my head when I first started listening to more ambient music but after I spent some more time with them both and realized the Orb was more ambient space techno with lots of dub influences and Orbital is a more poppy and eccentric kind of techno leaning into ambient atmospheres they were distinct.

On the Orbital note, I really like the Brown Album and In Sides. I will continue to binge these guys although I'm past Middle of Nowhere now and I hear that their works fall off from there.

The people who told you that are listening through rose-tinted hearing aids. After Middle of Nowhere you had The Altogether, which had mixed reviews but is generally consistent; the excellent Blue Album with its capstone One Perfect Sunrise; Wonky, which was written with live performance in mind; and Monsters Exist, which is blighted by Brian Cox but otherwise mostly suffers only from having too many climaxes.
