The Orb - "Little Fluffy Clouds" - Song of the Day [9/21/2013]

Today's Song of the Day takes us back... to 1991. Little Fluffy Clouds is a song that many in the electronic industry singlehandedly give credit to the creation and expansion of the genre ambient dance music. With a steady acid house beat, repetitive vocal sampling, floating synth chords, and ambient soundscapes, The Orb has crafted the work of art that is part of the masterpiece album The Orb's Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld.
The Orb has drawn inspiration from many artists, including Karlheinz Stockhausen and Pink Floyd. Likewise, he has been a source of inspiration for many house artists, trance artists, and psychedelic dance artists today.
I recommend listening to the album as a whole.
