ORBITAL
IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN

Bruno Galindo July 2019 MUSIC Read in PDF format N21/2019
ORBITAL BROTHERS PAUL Y PHIL HARTNOLL, PIONEERS OF ELECTRONIC MUSIC FOR THE MASSES IN THE 90S, WILL PERFORM AT ONE OF THE BIGGEST CLUBS IN SAN ANTONIO. WE TALK WITH PAUL.

You guys come from the first raves of the acid house era and you have managed to keep your punk spirit. What non-negotiable principles have you maintained over the years?
Do whatever you want, when you want.

The electronic scene appears to have become a little standardized, perhaps because, at the end of the day, musicians and DJs alike are using the same tools, How can one be original and stick to a fresh sound in this universe that has become so uniform?
Talent! Anybody can hang a guitar from their shoulder, but not everybody can write a song with it. As Ray Charles once said,  ̈it ́s not the instrument, baby!”

You guys belong to the first generation of electronic music superstars: you were the first to sign onto big concerts and tours in front of massive audiences, together with artists like The Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers. What has the change in the business been like? Has stardom become even more wicked?
When we started, everything was managed by a posse of amateur enthusiasts, everybody working together. I think that that attitude is still alive in the world of dance; more than in the world of rock, I’d  say. But we have to be careful so that that super stardom doesn't take any more lives. Stars shine, but they also need to be grounded by real friends.

You guys have managed to become the standard in your genre and you have also managed to stay together even after the Blue Album of 2004. Perhaps, on some level, Orbital has been too much for Phil and Paul Hartnoll. Will we have Orbital for awhile?
Forever, or at least until we retire.

How do you think Ibiza has changed since your first visit until now, which includes your concert at the Idol Party at the Eden Club?
I'm not sure how the island has changed, but it seems to be more open to beat changes on the dancefloor. We expect to test that out!

What will we see at this show?
Orbital tracks chosen from our record, especially for this event. We will also play some remixes that we are working on for others and also ones that others have done for us. There’s new stuff and new versions of our own tracks. It’s been truly exciting to work on all of this for Idol.
