ORBITAL on 6 Mix Show – Xmas Day and New Years Eve – First play of 2 Album tracks…

Orbital return to the BBC 6 music on Christmas Day at 8pm with a brand new 6 Mix Show.


Phil and Paul will be playing some of their favourite music from 2011, some old skool electronic classics and two exclusive tracks from the forthcoming new 8th Orbital album. The tracks “Straight Sun” and the “Dj Version” of “Wonky” will be played as part of Phil’s set. I’m guessing the DJ Version is the instrumental and original version of “Wonky” but time will tell. One of my favourite tracks from the new album – it’s totally bonkers.

There will also be an extended 3 hour version of the show running from 10pm on New Years Eve, featuring an extra hour party long mix from Paul and Phil to see in 2012.  Below are the first 2 setlists and we will be posting the extended show setlist hopefully over the next day or two.
