William Orbit Hello Waveforms
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: Sanctuary
Too often, ambient equals snoozy, but in the case of über-producer William Orbit, ambient denotes a range of sounds. On this, his first solo album since 2000, Orbit shows his typical keyboard-heavy style while creating a varied disc. He nods to his previous works with "Humming Chorus" (taken from Madame Butterfly) while tracks like "Spiral" (featuring vocals from Kenna and UK girl group Sugababes), with its texture and moodiness, lean more toward pop. Though he‘s perhaps heavy on the spacey noises, it‘s easy to see why everyone from Madonna to U2 keeps his number handy.
