Legendary dance duo Orbital return to the 6 Mix for two shows recounting their personal history of dance music and the part they played in the genre' genesis. Best known for seminal dance tunes including Chime and Halcyon, Orbital reformed last year after a five year hiatus, headlining festivals all over the world including the Big Chill Festival and Get Loaded In The Park. The band also presented three 6 Mix programmes, playing the music which inspired them growing up from punk to dub. In this show, brothers Paul and Phil Hartnoll play tunes from React To Rhythm , Joi, Frankie Knuckles and Aphex Twin, sharing their memories of those tunes and the part they played in shaping Orbital's sound. In the second hour Phil takes to the decks for an exclusive hour mix of his current favourite club tunes, including the debut of a brand new Orbital track - their first in five years - called 'Don't Stop Me.'.
