Two items from The Orb for Friday, masters of long dub-ambient workouts. First is this far out re-working of Towers Of Dub from the U.F.Orb album back in 1992. This version originally appeared on the Orb In Dub 12" and after that the fifteenth anniversary re-issue, and then the U.F. Off compilation (plus the Ultra Rare Tracks bootleg which is where I've taken it from). It contains a sample of Hudson and Landry's comedy routine The Hippy and the Redneck.

Once you've digested that you can go here and grab The Orb Presents: Full Orbient, a nine track podcast mix from 2008, introduced by Alex Paterson and then full of treats, remixes and versions from The Dream. Well worth downloading, sitting back and letting it slide over you at the end of the working week.
