Orchid-Star was formed in 2005 by Pete Ardron initially as a live set up to perform music he'd written for chill-out DJ sets. Their sound comprises a colourful and innovative tapestry of influences including electronica, world music, psychedelia, 20th century classical music, (think Scriabin, Steve Reich, Messiaen, Holst, Debussy) woven into fluid dance and downtempo grooves. Glow
Their debut, “Birth”, released on Liquid Sound in 2008 along with “reBirth” - remixes by Youth, Tripswitch, Kuba, Subsonar and band leader Pete Ardron is regarded by many as a psychedelic chill classic. Its follow-up “Faster” retaining all the trademarks of the first but is a much more exhuberant, on-your-feet affair will be released June 2011.
A fantastic festival act, Orchid-Star kicked off by headlining the largest of Glastonbury Festival's fringe stages, Croissant Neuf and have since graced stages at Wychwood, Sunrise, Kingston Green Fair, Waveform, Glade, Big Green Gathering, Boom (Portugal), Hadra (France) and Art-Dance (Vladivostok, Russia) amongst others. On the club circuit, they have performed regularly at events like The Synergy Project, Planet Angel, Acid Monkey and Alpha Omega. Radio play for Orchid-Star includes numerous plays on Radio Avalon and several on Pathaan's Musical Rickshaw (BBC Asian Network).

"Orchid-Star, helmed by the enigmatic Pete Ardron, create a unique experience through their world trance electronica fusion of influences.Combined with Pete's perfectionist production criteria it is a sound to behold, fearless in its vision and sublime epic ambition yet fragile and very delicate in the details. Behold! and give thanks such rare flowers such as these still exist in these difficult times.”
