Some of you might know of William Orbit from his Grammy Award winning production of Madonna’s, Ray of Light album. Others may know of him from his work with Seal, Prince, All Saints, Sugababes, Pink, Finlay Quaye, and U2. He’s certainly prolific!

If you’re new to his music, here’s my list of must have albums / tracks:

As artist / producer:

  • The Best of Strange Cargos
  • Strang Cargo – Hinterland
  • William Orbit – Pieces in a modern style

As producer:

  • Ray of Light – Madonna
  • Pure Shores – All Saints
  • Electrical Storm (William Orbit mix) – U2
  • Black (William Orbit mix) – Sarah McLachlan
  • Faith will carry – Beth Orton
  • Beautiful Stranger – Madonna (from Austin Powers: Spy who shagged me)
  • Be careful – Ricky Martin & Madonna

I’m in the process of buying all his music 🙂
