William Orbit - five hours of recorded interviews

Grand pop/electronica master producer William Orbit has a new album and two EP's out.



"My Oracle Lives Uptown" (Kobalt Digital) is available to buy on CD and LP from digital stores likeAmazon, eMusic and iTunes, and the EPs "Optical Illusions" and "Purdy" can be found in the same places.

To promote his new music William has done many interviews and guest appearances on various shows lately, and below you can listen to and download over five hours of recordings.

And for many more radio appearances than I have catalogued here, go to William's "OrbitStreamcast", which has several streams with tons of his music and radio interviews. You can literally lose track of time in there, listening to so many Orbit exclusives!
