Those who were ravers in the late 80s and early 90s will hold Orbital responsible for some serious brain cell loss! Huge tracks like "Halcyon On & On" from 1993, and classics from their self-titled 1991 album "Chime" and "Belfast" kept us awake for days.
From big beats through to ambient soundscapes, British brothers Phil and Paul Hartnell, were at the forefront of electronic production and the dance music scene since forming in 1989. And, thirty years later they are still delivering the goods!
Having recently played some big club gigs in Australia, we caught up with them via our mates at Cool Accidents and asked them to reflect on the records that helped define their sound - and there are some absolute surprises on their list including Kate Bush and Mike Oldfield!
Here is Orbital, Diggin In The Crates, shot at Sydney's The Record Store.
