To celebrate their 20th year in music, 2009 heralds the release of
Orbital 20. Alongside a major UK tour taking in headline slots at
festivals such as the Big Chill, Get Loaded In The Park and Global
Gathering, the album features a selection of their most celebrated
tracks alongside three brand new mixes by Herve, Tom Middleton and
James Zabiela as well as two previously unreleased live tracks. Orbital
20 is to be released in conjunction with a 12" single featuring the new
Made up of brothers Phil and Paul Hartnoll, Orbital were named after Greater London's own circular autobahn, the M25, which was central to the early Rave scene and party network in the South East of England during the halcyon 'daze' of Acid House. Their beginnings were producing simple but infectious top 40 Pop-Dance tunes with their debut single 'Chime', released in 1989, eventually reaching No. 17 in the UK chart and resulting in an appearance on Top Of The Pops. Since then, through their albums, film scores and beyond, Orbital have crafted some of the most innovative and yet accessible electronic music. One of their greatest achievements is their longevity, which is firmly based on a sound that is recognisably their own. Their live return this year will be a huge treat for an entire generation who grew up jumping to their music and a fantastic opportunity to experience them for those too young to have seen them before. With the album out in time for Father's Day, this will not only be targeted at the rave generation through print and online marketing aimed at the 30+ but with a large marketing campaign for the younger age groups as well. Making the most of the new mixes, the dance community and National radio play will be targeted.
