KCRW Presents: OrbitalKCRW-FM

Along with Moby, The Prodigy, Underworld and The Chemical Brothers, Orbital was influential in establishing a blueprint for today's thriving electronic dance-music scene. After an extended hiatus, Phil and Paul Hartnoll recently reunited for select live dates, including a performance in KCRW's studios. It's a treat to hear electronic classics like "Chime" sound as captivating and innovative as they did two decades ago.

Watch Orbital's entire performance on Morning Becomes Eclectic at KCRW.com.
