Rhythmic elements of composition

Orbital has always brought a hypnotic rhythmic quality to production, before delay is added, how do you work to get these great, lush, integrated compositions going?

They always seem more integrated and less riff-based than other contemporaries.

I guess it just comes down to individual working styles. I think , for me , ever since i got a 4 track tape recorder ive loved the layering of sound and harmony . it was the thing that really clicked with me at 16. I realised it was all about composition rather than actual playing . hence I'm a crap guitarist and a very slightly better keyboard player. never put the time in once I could compose.

it just starts with one element , then I keep layering up rhythmically and harmonically until it feels right or over stuffed, then i go back and thin it out if needed.
