After unveiling headline performances at this summer’s hottest dance festivals, as well as a UK headline tour, dance pioneers Orbital announce the release of their most well known tracks plus some new mixes. Simply titled ‘Orbital 20’ the compilation celebrates 20 years of ground-breaking electronica, reworked and remixed onto 2 CD’s of generation-defining dance music, to be released on June 8th via Rhino Records.
“This compilation is the most definitive summary of our work since ‘Chime’ came out in 1989”, says Paul Hartnoll on the release of their definitive collection, “It's a great introduction, or indeed a reminder, of the story so far...”
Featuring brand new remixes of ‘Halcyon’ (Tom Middleton) and ‘Lush‘ (Herve), the collection also features previously unreleased live versions of ‘Impact’ (Live at Royal Albert Hall) and ‘Remind’ (Live in New York).
A revered live act, their 1994 Glastonbury performance being included in Q magazines ‘50 best gigs of all time’, 2009 sees them impact once again on the live arena.
