23 years ago in leafy Kent, two electronic music-loving brothers Phil and Paul Hartnoll recorded and mastered a track at home on their dad's cassette player. They called it "Chime" and decided to name themselves "Orbital" after the M25 which passed close to their home and was the route to many infamous late 80's raves.

That record is regarded as a seminal moment in dance music history, and within 5 years they were headlining Glastonbury.

Now, coinciding with the release of 'Wonky' - their first album in 8 years - Orbital join Dave Pearce to look back on those early days, and delve through their most treasured 12"singles and the tracks that inspired them. Expect everything from Madonna to squelchy acid house!
