It’s our birthday week here at BBC Radio 6 Music and we’re delighted that techno titans Orbital will be joining our celebrations on Friday. After they’ve finished playing live for Lauren Laverne’s show at Maida Vale, they’ll be joining Now Playing @6Music on Friday evening to choose the show playlist via Twitter.

If you’ve heard the Hartnoll Brothers’ 6 Mix shows you’ll know they have eclectic taste, but this time you can help influence what they play. From 7.30pm on Friday they’ll be playing some of their all time favourites and current earworms - but they want you to suggest tracks to add in real time using the hashtag #Orbital6Music.

From Chime to Belfast you might want to ask them to pull some of their classics out of their record bag, or maybe or something new from their new album Wonky?

Perhaps you’ll suggest some other members of dance music’s royal family who put on incredible festival performances like The Chemical Brothers, Underworld or Daft Punk?

Or perhaps it’ll be some of the music that has influenced the band, from Gary Numan and Kraftwerk, to Severed Heads and Adrian Sherwood.

Remember to Tweet using #Orbital6Music from 7pm or you can leave messages on our Facebook page, e-mail us and add tracks to the Now Playing Orbital Spotify Playlist which they’ll be able to keep an eye on as we count down to show time. Head torches are, of course, optional.
