The Back to Mine series has already brought us some very memorable compilations from a diverse collection of dance luminaries, including Morcheeba, MJ Cole, Groove Armada, Faithless, Nick Warren and Talvin Singh. Now it's the turn of famous brothers-in-rhythm Paul and Phil Hartnoll, aka Orbital, to offer a selection of the tunes that lie close to their hearts and get their heads bopping. Their effort is indulgently deep and impressively broad, and is certainly one of the series' most eclectic offerings yet. Starting with John Barry and His Orchestra's "The Knack", we are taken through a weird and wonderful selection of tastes and styles, leaping from soundtrack to ska, rave to reggae, industrial to psychedelic, punk to pop. The intensely wide range of sounds means that the LP doesn't flow quite as mellifluously as it might, but with songs by Lee Scratch Perry ("Justice to the People"), The Tornadoes ("Love and Fury"), PJ Harvey ("Kamikaze"), The Selecter ("Celebrate the Bullet"), Earth Leakage Trip ("No Idea"), Jethro Tull ("Living in the Past") and Plaid ("New Bass Hippo"), it's still an enjoyable, sprawling and educational album that manages to pull together a disparate but relevant bunch of pre, post and present dance tunes. --Paul Sullivan

Orbital's Back to Mine collection is a bit special, not only is it the 10th in the series but it's probably the most eclectic mix to date, but if you've heard the Hartnoll brothers own recordings you wouldn't expect anything less. Here the boys dim the lights on their famous torch glasses and rely on trusty candle power to accompany an evening back round theirs. Orbital's soiree kicks off with 60's soundtracky grooves like John Barry's 'the knack' and glides into skanking reggae territory courtesey of Lee Perry and an exclusive from the Hartnolls themselves in the shape of 'Ska'd For Life'. Then as more gold label gets drunk the boys move into a more twisted dancefloor direction and drop standout tracks like DSR's 'Babaloo' or the ever trippy Earth Leakage Trip's 'No Idea'. The odd curveball is thrown in too like PJ Harvey and Divine Comedy then it's wound back down again as the boys experimental faves Tangerine Dream and Plaid take us to home time.
While this whole dance is dead kind of thing is being borne out by the easy listening buzz of the BTM series, and well we're all getting old now and a baseline which your living room walls can't bear isn't entirely civic minded all told, this steers someway clear of anything dancey by giving the relaxed, mature, ironic, London flat vibe a wide berth. Instead, we have a wild meander through some edgy, class tunes, with very little to link them to any idea of dance music.
This has a frantic, psychotic edge and a collection of totally brilliant songs from some esteemed musicians and singers.
