Orbital have remixed German electronic pioneers Kraftwerk for a remix EP of the track ‘EXPO 2000’.
According to the official Orbital website [url=]www.loopz.co.uk, the dance duo remixed the track over the summer, and it will be released on November 13 through EMI in Germany. It is currently unclear whether the track will get a UK release, but a clip will be available on the Loopz site in the near future.
‘Expo 2000’ was originally recorded by Kraftwerk as the official theme of the Expo 2000 exhibition in Hanover.
All tracks have now been completed on Orbital‘s forthcoming studio album, which is set to be released in March through London.
Speaking to NME.COM about the record, Phil Hartnoll said the band had experimented with surround-sound technology on the album. He said: “It’s a bit more of a fun LP. There are no moody downer tracks, there’s a really nice, lovely track with a mate of mine singing. It’s called ‘Funny Break?…There’s one called ‘Last Thing’ which is another one of my favourites, that’s a bit more of a dancy number.”
