Orbital - Nothing Left

Postby Genesis » Wed Oct 15, 2008 1:24 am

This tune is easily a killer and having come out of Orbital's studio is another thing to glance upon. Orbital, brothers Paul and Phil Hartnoll, is one (if not The) top pioneer in EDM. Having started productions back in 1989 with their EP Chime, Orbital went all the way to absolute and deserved domination over the english club scene and eventually, the european and global EDM phenomena.
Known for their improvisations and live editing of the tunes played at their live performances, Orbital (who went separate ways in 1994) have produced and released a staggering 14 artist albums and more singles on vinyls then I can count or even know of for that matter across the 90's up to the early 2000's. Orbital have helped build the scene to what it is today with a fresh innovative unique approach to Techno like none other from that era. Their tunes got remixed to every other imaginable sub-genre of EDM including that monstrous Breeder Remix!

Nothing Left was written and produced in 1999. I've chosen this tune among others of Orbital's because it actually had less exposure and fame than their previous work such as Satan, The Box, Saint, and Style. Not that Nothing Left was any less of a tune than the others, but for whatever reason it stayed under the lid, got remixed extensively, and stayed one of those tunes that you'd spot on a dance floor, not what it is, but you'd go mad over how good it is! It's just a shame that Orbital have broken off and have deprived our musical thirst of more and more goodness.

The Beeder Remix is a BOMB! I absolutely love it... I think that's the best remix!

Are we having another Sasha-esque GU Ibiza moment??

What a beautiful beautiful track...

Come to think of it the GU Ibiza remains the greatest progressive trance compilation ever...

Welcome to DJ.Malaria you may wonder why I called this group Dj Malaria.
Just like Malaria takes over a person's body when it hits them i want my music's originality to control the soul of whoever hears it in that sense my music is more powerful than Malaria,and I'm sure it will but in a positive way of
course.

EVER indeed!! It's a brilliant album, start to finish. Sheer brilliance!!!
I have never listened to a progressive album that is as good or even close enough to how that GU is (and I have got and listened to many over the years). Nothing Left being on it is nothing short than strengthening this statement.

Thick hard basslines and awesome vocals with a monstrous build-up. Can a tune be more perfectly made/remixed? Don't think so!

I actually played Halcyon at one of my gigs last year, don't remember which. Nothing like dropping a decade-old track out of the blue! Not that anyone recognized it though... I guess mzy wasn't there :P
