Thursday Tea Time Show

Alex Paterson
Paterson had worked as a roadie for Killing Joke during the '80s, and began to be influenced by the explosion of Chicago house music in England during the mid-to-late-'80s. He joined the A&R department of E.G. Records Ltd. Records — the home of Brian Eno himself — and first recorded as the Orb with Jimmy Cauty. The duo's first release as the Orb, the failed acid-house anthem «Tripping on Sunshine», appeared on the 1988 compilation album Eternity Project One.

Alex Paterson and Jimmy Cauty had been recording an album during the turn of 1989-90, but the two split in April 1990 — a result of Paterson's fear that the Orb had become known more as a KLF, The side-project than an original act. Cauty stripped Paterson's contribution to the recordings and released the eponymous album — credited simply as Space — later that year.

The Orb released several albums trough the '90s, including The Orb's Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld, Aubrey Mixes: The Ultraworld Excursions (which were only available for one day but still managed to place in the Top 50) and Orblivion.

A classically-trained pianist and cellist from Cornwall, he met Richard D James (The Aphex Twin) in 1989. Learned the science of sound sampling and synth programming by observing Richard in the studio. This friendship lead to Tom co-producing a track for the 'Analogue Bubblebath' EP as Schizophrenia, which has now reached cult status. Tom introduced Richard to Mighty Force Records and helped broker the record deal for the EP.

After graduating in Graphic Design in 1991, Tom met Mark Pritchard, a Producer/DJ with similar musical tastes. The pair set up the Evolution Records imprint (which later became Universal Language Productions Ltd and the final incarnation as E3.)

They recorded under an number pseudonyms, from Reload (Techno and IDM), Global Communication (Electronica and Ambient) — notably developing the principal of integrating pure emotions in sound, Secret Ingredients (Deep House), and one of the most popular projects; Jedi Knights (Electro Boogie, P-Funk, Breakbeats, House), whose album 'New School Science' notably inspired the likes of The Prodigy (who sampled Jedi Knights 'Air Drums From Outer Bongolia' for their track 'Climbatize') and The Chemical Brothers to Daft Punk, The Freestylers and Adam Freeland.

Tom hosted a weekly Radio show on Kiss FM, tutored the winning aspiring DJ Ryan Shaw on ITV's Joy Of Decks TV show and has curated events and Festival spaces including Sound Of The Cosmos at The Big Chill 2011.

These sets were were originally streamed in real media in the early days of online streaming radio. Unfortunately, you'll have to excuse the poor quality.
