Ambientobit: Andy Hughes

Just heard of the death of Andu Hughes, ambient pioneer and member of The Orb.

Before The Orb, he had helped build the Bunk Junk and Genius studios; after, he produced work in his own right for the likes of Basement Jaxx and Kovak.

Andy died on Jume 12th after a short illness. His funeral is taking place tomorrow; donations to the Kings College Hospital charity are encouraged.
