INFO > In what was likely a (desirable) mistake on the part of FFRR, the first CD issue of Orbital’s “Midnight” (FCD 163) features Sasha’s remix of the main track; the 1995 reissue (LIECD 26) restored the original 12″ mix.

Best Wishes for a Healthy and Happy New Year!

Kinetic (1998)


01 Kinetic (Rhythm Masters Melodic Radio Edit)
02 Kinetic (Slacker’s Psychokinetic Mix)
03 Kinetic (Orbital Mix)
04 Kinetic (Hybrid’s Audiopyrotechnix Mix)

INFO > Techno classic “Kinetic” is a one-off single produced by Michael Hazell with Paul Hartnoll, who gave the track an overtly Orbital feel. Originally released in 1992 on R & S Records, “Kinetic” was licensed by Distinct’ive for a 1998 reissue, featuring remixes by Rhythm Masters, Slacker, Hybrid, and Orbital.

HELP > Looking for the 1993 UK single and the two Dutch singles from 1999 and 2000. Please feel free to share the wealth if you have any of those. Thanks.
