You are in for a big treat today… legendary electronic artist the Orb has teamed with iconic reggae and dub master Lee Scratch Perry to produce the full-length album The Observer in the Star House releasing 3 September via Cooking Vinyl. The tune “Golden Clouds” is a reworking of the classic Orb tune “Little Fluffy Clouds”, which keeps the ethereal waves of synths, but ups the dub and adds vocals by Perry. On 30 July, “Golden Clouds” released as a digital single with remixes and appears today on Beatport. The 81Neutronz remix that we premiere today builds the song out with layers of dubstep beats. The remixes are thoroughly compelling, building on the majesty of the original song “Little Fluffy Clouds” and adding new dimensions and elements. The video for the single is below the jump.
