#ORBITAL Synth Hero Show Mix @orbitalband @SynthHero

Orbital produced a Mix of influential tunes for the Synth Hero Show – Website

TRACKLIST W/ NOTES BY PHIL & PAUL AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST

 

1. “DR MABUSE” by PROPAGANDA
This was the first track on ZTT records that we heard and
never looked back.

2. “LET THE MUSIC PLAY” by SHANNON
One of the best dance floor tracks ever. (05.02)

3. “SITUATION” by YAZOO
Vince Clarke and Alison Moyet. What a team, song after song everyone’s a winner. (08.30)

4. “LOOKING FROM A HILLTOP” by SECTION 25
Our alternative Factory Records 12 inch favourite. (11.24)

5. “DEAD EYES OPEN” by SEVERED HEADS
The band that taught us that electronic music can be dirty, beautiful, haunting and funny all at the sam time. (16.03)

6. “KOYAANISQATSI” by PHILIP GLASS
We chose this particular track of Philip Glass from the film Trilogy which made a huge impression on us. He was our first introduction to “minimal music” and “System music” and was not afraid to use a synth. (19.20)

7. “LOGOS PART ONE” by TANGERINE DREAM
What we don’t know about magic mushrooms and Tangerine Dream ain’t worth knowing. (22.45)

8. “BEAT BOX” by ART OF NOISE
A big “moment in love”for us. Trevor Horn and Anne Dudly, electro UK style. (28.05)

9. “MAN MACHINE” by KRAFTWERK
We got introduced to Kraftwerk by our big brother Dr Gary with Autobahn. The Man Machine album is a personal smoking favourite. (38.28)

10. “AL NAAFYISH” by HASHIM
Love love love Electro music in the old style meaning. This made a huge impression and pushed us to buy our first drum machine. (41.45)

11. “NEW LIFE” by DEPECHE MODE
The first song ever video recorded on our parent’s Ferguson VHS machine. (47.58)

12. “DON’T STOP ME” by ORBITAL
We thought it would be good to pop this Orbital track in as Audio Where’s Wally of influences on us. (51.40)

13. “THEME FROM THE SAINT” by ORBITAL
In Honour of the great Sir Roger Moore here is our cover version of the Saint Theme Tune. (58.12)

Nouveau Casino Orbital DJ Set Paris



We have received a lot of emails and discussion about the French DJ set in Paris, on the 20th April 2012. The Nouveau Casino venue is too small to take on the full new live production, but the sound system will be Orbital DJing on Ableton and will feature new tracks from Wonky, along with old classics.

Orbital and PIL to launch Record Store Day in London this Monday (19th March) – win tickets!

Published by under DJ,Gigs,Music,Orbital

Orbital will DJ and PIL will play live in a secret location in Shoreditch, to launch Record Store Day. John Lydon (PIL) used the announcement as an opportunity to back physical records over downloads, saying: “The destruction of the music industry is because people can’t buy records easily. A record is for life. A download is a lack of life. A poor substitute for a real wife!”

If you want a chance to be on the guest list for this unique event, then send me an email (link at the top of webpage) with your name and a friend’s name. I will confirm if you have been successful via email and also provide details of the secret location. Good luck.

If you live too far away or can’t make it then you can always watch live on Boiler Room TV and the RSD website.
