"Then Orbital throw
us back into the maelstrom:
into a blasting Terry Riley sample, into the
relentless machine rhythm..."
as a term applying to a specific form of dance music --the minimal, electronic
like Derrick May, Juan Atkins, and Kevin Saunderson

being all about speed: its repetitive rhythms,
minimal melodies, and textural modulations are perfect
for the constantly
shifting perspectives offered by high-speed travel."
