Interview: Phil Hartnoll of Orbital

The dance music industry is… thinking big.

What moves me today is… simple raw music and good drama.

Nightclubs today are… the same as they’ve always been.

Modern music today is… too compressed and manicured.

The last time I got drunk I…listened to the 40 part motet by Tomas Tallis while sitting round a camp fire watching a meteor shower. It was a real moment.

Orbital plays Sep 20 at 1 World Music Festival, which takes place Sep 20-21 at the Marina Barrage. $98-188 from the website.
