Orbital – Satan (30 Something Years Later Mix) [Orbital Recordings Ltd, 190296379932]
Twisting the track into a baroque, 4:4 driven piece of electronic angst, Orbital take its iconic, breakbeat fuelled 1991-released track into a whole new groove.
Originally released as part of the ‘III’ EP, Orbital’s ‘Satan’ saw the duo delve into darker sounds, resulting in one of rave’s most recognisable tracks and one that has become a firm favourite during Orbital’s legendary live sets.
Having mutated and warped, insidiously retaining its impact throughout three decades of performance, ’Satan’ is back as a recording on 8th December.
“Satan , written before the dawn of chime. Through thick and thin it has always remained in the live set. This track has naturally evolved, shape shifting over time, taking on many forms. This current incarnation of Satan is how we play it now. It is a far cry from its humble beginnings harking back to the Belgium Nu Beat style which was popular at the time Satan was born in Dunton Green.
Never play it backwards after midnight.” – Orbital
