UK legends Orbital tlak you through their kit and stadium-rocking live performance.



If you've ever been at a live techno show and found yourself gazing up at the performer, frantically pressing hundreds of buttons and twisting knobs, engulfed in a labyrinth of brightly-coloured audio cables and thought to yourself 'what are they doing up there?' then DJ Mag's new How We Play series is the show for you.

The show explores how electronic artists are taking their music on the road, choosing the right kit and set-up and the challenges and joys of playing dance music live.

The latest edition features one of the UK's longest-running electronic artists, Orbital. Famous for their energetic performances and anthemic tracks, they’ve been dominating the festival and touring scene with their iconic live show since 1989. 

Learn how this dynamic duo put on some of the most incredible performances in the scene and find out exactly what each of their mountains of kit is used for.
