    My first taste of Orbital was “There is the theory of the Moebius, a twist in the fabric of space where time becomes a loop.” …back in ’94… So great that LoopInsight digs on the EDM vibe…

    I’ve confused “Orbital” and “The Orb” for the longest time lol. It doesn’t help that their debut albums came out virtually the same time (a few months apart in 1991, if I recall correctly). Both great, innovative EDM bands, regardless.

    I have to say, though, Orbital really polished their sound with their second album, and then just kept cranking out awesome works all throughout the 90s.
