We’re going in search of Daphne Oram in the new Electronic Sound. We’re taking a road trip from the hallowed turf of the BBC’s Maida Vale Studios to the leafy environs of rural Kent, where Oram lived and worked in a converted oast house for over four decades, then heading back to London to see her Mini-Oramics machine in action. Along the way, we delve into her archives to tell the story of the founder of the Radiophonic Workshop and try to fill in the gaps in what we know about the first lady of British electronic music.
This month’s Electronic Sound cover star is Jason Pierce, aka J Spaceman, the main man of cosmic kings Spiritualized. We have a fantastic seven-inch – dual speed and white vinyl – featuring tracks from the band’s extremely rare ‘Pure Phase Tones For DJs’ EP to accompany the magazine too. We’ve had Jason Pierce in our sights since the announcement of the Spaceman Reissue Program, which sees the re-release of VIP editions of Spiritualized’s first four albums, including ‘Pure Phase’ and ‘Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space’. Jason has always been a high quality interviewee and we found him in terrific form, happy to chat about whatever we threw at him and serving up a cracking Kraftwerk tale along the way.

It’s been a long ride with the ever-pulsating brain at the centre of the Ultraworld we know as The Orb. Alex Paterson has steered his cosmic vehicle through several decades of sound, so much so that their ineffable mix of influences has become a genre unto itself. Well versed in the atmospheres and moods evoked by the ambient music created by Brian Eno, Patterson shaped that calming music into a framework of Jamaican dub, a downtempo mutation of acid house and whatever else was passing at the time. The result was ideal for the post-club experience, music that filled the room, but didn’t require any athletics from its energy depleted listeners. They could drift away as The Orb’s reassuring soundscapes swaddled them in cosy pillows and little fluffy clouds. They called it chill out.
