He is best known for his work with The Orb, where he helped mix and produce Orbus Terrarum, Orblivion, and Cydonia, as well as The Orb's singles from this period. Hughes left The Orb during the production of Cydonia, which was reworked after his departure. In 2009, he mastered The Orb's Baghdad Batteries (Orbsessions Volume III) for release.

The perfect response to a music scene swamped by what Paterson himself called "lame ambient noodling for 70 minutes," Orbus Terrarum brings the mothership back to earth for a collision with some surprisingly harsh percussion and noisy synth. The melodies and dub lines of previous Orb recordings are still in the mix, and the esoteric bent of Pomme Fritz is muted somewhat. Orbus Terrarum is definitely not the place to start, but it's still a worthy successor to .

Orbus Terrarum is the third studio album of electronic music artist The Orb released on Island Records on the 4th of April 1995. Before leaving The Orb, member Kris Weston had begun work on Orbus Terrarum. However, when he left The Orb, German producer Thomas Fehlmann joined as a full-time studio member. Unlike previous albums by The Orb, Orbus Terrarum featured more "earthbound" and "organic" sounds instead of the trippy science fiction themed music they had previously written. Orbus Terrarum suffered, as Paterson described it, "a good kicking" at the hands of the British press, who described it as "generic ambient music" and stated that it was a low point for Paterson's creativity.

Much as I love Orbus Terrarum, I prefer the original American release. "Plateau" is 30 seconds longer on that release, and more "Plateau" is better. I'd enjoy an hourlong mix of that track. "Slug Dub" on the American release is more than a minute longer, and the European release, remastered here, fades out before the satisfying conclusion to the story of the slugs. On the other hand, "Occidental" on the European release is about 20 seconds longer. Not sure where those seconds are squeezed in.There may be some other subtle differences, but it might be hard to identify and quantify them because so much of the album is deeply layered. The remastered sound isn't dramatically different, however. The main advantage of this two disc remaster is the inclusion of a number of unreleased mixes, none of which exceed the originals but all of which are worth hearing. Fun fact: David Sinclair of The Times derided "Orbus Terrarum" in a 1995 review as "generic ambient music." No easier way to telegraph to your audience that you didn't actually listen to the record you're reviewing! Love it or hate it, there's nothing generic about this nonpareil album.

This album simply gets better and better over time. Oddly, it didn't resonate with my when I first heard it, it took years for it to fully sink its hooks into my brain. It's altogether more subtle and deeper than "Ultraworld", and more earthy and grounded (intentionally so, looking at the album title, obviously) than "U.F.Orb" was. The tracks have more subtle melodies and layers, and it feels somehow more geological, sedimentary in construction. There are moments of great, tranquil beauty that build imperceptibly into noisy assaults, dubby wanderings in moist mornings through a soggy garden, aerial flights along a verdant valley. The second disc of remixes on the 2CD reissue is fantastic, as well, though it's more a dessert than a main course. When I'm in a certain mood, "Orbus Terrarum" is a full repast.
