Details are still a little scarce but it’s now confirmed that ORBITAL have contributed 2 tracks to the up and coming WipEout 2048 game on the new Sony Vita.
The 1st track is a re-working of “P.E.T.R.O.L”, which incidentally was on the first and original Wipeout game in 1995. The reworked version has the title of “P.E.T.R.O.L (Final Drop Mix)”. The 2nd track is called “Beelzedub” and is their totally revamped version of “Satan”. This track has been briefly previewed on their Video Diaries from last year and has been played out during their DJ sets in 2011. This track will also feature on the new ORBITAL album due for release in April.
The full tracklisting for the soundtrack is as follows:-

TX : Nothing is a 45 minute film by Nick Waplington which was broadcast on BBC2 on Thurdsday 29th July 1999. Orbital’s music accompanied the film that was described by its makers as an “existential exploration of the journey, a modern take on the road trip”. Orbital’s music was based around sounds-effects as opposed to their normal song/track structures. One section incorporated the track “I think its Disgusting” (UK Green album) but with additional effects and beats.

While Paul and Phil are sweating it out in their studio, i will hopefully be completing one of the biggest challenges of my life!
This is my first ever marathon!. I’ve completed a few half marathons, but never attempted 26.2 miles (yes… there is a .2 in the London one….!). My legs are terrible from the training, but i’m determined to complete it. Dont expect any records to be broken!
I have no idea what to set my target at. Any donations to Cancer Research is a bonus and any donation will make me happy. If i get a thousand pounds then that will be totally amazing. I thank you in advance and i will come across that line even if i have to crawl!
