Oranges Are Blue
Aura were a techno group from South-East London, formed in 1990 by Gary Folgate & Dave Tutt. They were signed by Korda Marshall to Infectious Records in 1993 and went on to release 2 albums & several 12" singles, as well as appearing on several compilation albums. The duo also teamed up with fellow techno artist Simeon Bowring's 'Pentatonik' to release a track under the name 'Pentaura’.
Aura recorded their music with help from producer Andy Peak at Butterfly Studios in Brixton, London, in 1995, run by ex-Killing Joke's bass player Youth. The first releases with Infectious Records were a 12" single 'Touched' and a mini-album 'butterflychrysaliscaterpillar' that received some good reviews in the music press (cite to follow). Aura's main album release 'Oranges are Blue' came out in 1996.
