Orbital Set To Play Ibiza 2019

Orbital Set To Play Ibiza 2019

If our generation was to pick a tune to send into Space as a calling card for humanity, Chime by Orbital, would be high on the selection list. Chime was a pioneering piece of music when it was released in 1989, its softer more expansive sound emerging from the hard beats of the rave scene linked to the M25 Motorway, back then the silk road and gateway to the exotic sounds of illicit ecstasy and amphetamine fuelled parties around London. The group Orbital, comprising of brothers Phil and Paul Hartnoll, named their fledgling music project after the roads official title, London’s Orbital M25 Motorway and mastered its debut single, Chime, on their fathers old cassette tape deck – a remarkable piece of musical engineering. Now 30 years later, Orbital are set to return to Ibiza for an exclusive residency for Idol at Eden.

Last time Orbital played Ibiza was the Space Opening Party back in 2012 and the man responsible for bringing the ground breaking group back to Ibiza is ex Pacha musical director and Subliminal Records manager Steve Hulme.  Currently he is operations director for fifteen IDOL at Eden events which feature some astute out of the box programming. Musically Idol’s direction is freestyle, preferring to project a story of interest around a certain genre of music or DJ and the booking of Orbital underlines this refreshing concept, booking influential artists whose sound encompasses many aspects of house and shades of the original rave spirit of DIY/Punk.

With acts such as Orbital, Catz ‘n Dogz, Timo Maas, Worakls + N’to, Joachim Pastor [Hungry Music Take-over], King Joshua, Diego Donati and Murjd and already confirmed, Idol at Eden has certainly brought some musical integrity back to San Antonio and looks set to be one of Edens more credible events this season and a reason to party in the Sunset resort.  Orbital are confirmed for nine Monday dates at Eden this summer the first kicking off on June 3. Early Bird Tickets can be purchased for just €20 at
