A lot of engineering, experience, and specialization went into the design of Orbital’s touring rig, a set up that has created joyous experiences for decades. Here’s a tour of the rig, from DJ Mag:
Made up of brothers Phil and Paul Hartnoll, Orbital played Inner City Electronic Festival in March, just prior to the UK’s COVID-19 lockdown. We caught up with the seminal UK rave duo to talk through how they play live.
