- ORBITAL are without a doubt the one of the most respected pioneers of electronic music as we know it. Phil and Paul Hartnoll, brothers, have sustained a healthy following over the years with their cutting edge sound and energetic live performances. Known mostly for their classic productions such as “Chime” and “The Box”, on this occasion the lads have been called upon from the gang at Back To Mine to compile the latest addition to a series that in itself has gather a cult following over the last few years.
The mix is without a doubt one of the most diverse in the series. Starting with a 60’s flashback to John Barry’s “The Knack” it continues with an Orbital favourite, DSR’s “Babaloo”, a record that has been an Orbital favourite for over a decade. The melodic “Love & Fury” by the Tornadoes is uniquely described as “electronic instrumental rock n’roll” while PJ Harvey, Orbital’s most loved singer/songwriter is featured with “Kamikaze”. The mix travels through India with Falguni Pathak’s delicate vocals, hovers through the creepiness with the cries of “mummy” in Hyper-on-experience’s “Half Stepper”, and re visits the 80’s electronic scene with Tangerine’s Dream “Network Twenty Three”.
The tenth installment of Back To Mine is characteristic of Orbital – innovative, diverse and individual. The mix has everything for everyone and gives a good reflection of the music that influences two artists that have influenced us greatly over the years.
