William Orbit

William Orbit is a British musician and record producer, best known to the public for producing Madonna's album Ray of Light. He has also co-produced several unreleased Madonna songs originally recorded for other albums but were never used.

His speciality is atmospheric keyboard electronica although much of his work features accomplished guitar playing. He has also recorded several largely instrumental solo albums under the name Strange Cargo which features vocals by Beth Orton, Laurie Mayer and Cleo Torres among others. He was the musical force behind Bassomatic in the early 1990s, and formed the band Torch Song together with Laurie Mayer and Rico Conning in the 1980s. He has also produced and remixed numerous other artists, his remixes carrying his signature electronic sounds and techniques, making them sought after by fans of his solo work.
