Two tapes and characters of electronic musicians meet on one record to perform the same track, and the results are quite different: TD provided Towards The Evening Star, the opening track from Goblins Club as base material for a Mandarin Cream Remix by the famous British techno band The Orb. There is hardly any similarity in style and sound to be discovered between the TD original and The Orb remix track.
After TD have often been copied, sampled or imitated by Techno musicians or DJs without the permission of the band, Towards The Evening Star was to be the first "official" Techno remix of a TD track -- of course besides the ones Jerome Froese did on The Dream Mixes. For the first time TD had given anybody a multitrack master to work from. However, in the end the band was not quite satisfied with the result and especially with the way it had been made. TD referred to a statement in the Future Sound magazine where The Orb had explained their disappointment as far as their working relationship with TD is concerned. "Edgar and Jerome didn't like The Orb's Radio Edit Mix of Towards The Evening Star, that's true", TD explained. But both agreed to the Club release. TD remarked that "none of The Orb members did ever contact TD or tried to communicate directly -- Edgar and Jerome like to talk to musicians and not to business executives lawyers or the staff members of someone's office. Main reason to be in the business is the music itself."
