Robert Johnson’s musical curator Oliver Hafenbauer launched Die Orakel more than two years ago. Following previous releases from Edward, Jaures and Harmonia & Eno ’76, the label have announced a new vinyl series, named ‘Orakel X-Files’, with the first from Orson Wells, arriving on 29th January 2016.
The German producer is well-known for his past releases on Live At Robert Johnson and it mustn’t be a casualty if Oliver Hafenbauer, who runs the record label with Ata, has chosen him to open the X-Files series.
Slightly distant from the warm and up tempo house vibes of ‘Never Lonely No More‘ and ‘Open Light‘, the new two-tracker presents two shattered Detroit techno sounds straight from the 90’s mingling with mechanical hip-hop vocals that perfectly intertwine with broken beats and tickling hi-hats.
Orakel-x-files 1 is released via Die Orakel on 29 January 2016. Order a copy from wordandsound.
