Produced by William Orbit

My Oracle Lives Uptown is William Orbit's eighth album, and his signature sound - sleek and lush, but leaving a cool slipstream in its wake - is immediately recognisable. Most of the tracks on the album feature vocals, even if they are only textures in the mix - and their placement within the track is planned with a remixer's ear for shifts of perspective.

My Oracle Lives Uptown, follows his last solo album, 2006's Hello Waveforms. "This is more of a party record than the previous ones," says William Orbit of his new album. It's not a serious, po-faced record, it's not ambient - although it has its ambient moments. One of the things about being eclectic is that people don't know what they are going to get. But I would say that it's upbeat with a bit of glitter on it."

Although My Oracle Lives Uptown is probably William Orbit's most immediate album, it's so subtly layered that it only reveals itself fully after a number of plays. And like his other solo albums, it will surely be resistant to the ageing process. His vision is idiosyncratic and original enough to not to have to try to play catch-up with anyone else, which gives his music a curiously timeless feel.
