In the two years and six releases Die Orakel has been active, founder Oliver Hafenbauer has steered the label into one of the more interesting operations functioning at the cross section between experimentalism and dancefloor immediacy. A new year brings the expansion of Die Orakel's remit with the launch of a 12? series dedicated to the dancefloor called X-Files. Fans of Mulder and Scully will be disappointed that the cult sci-fi series is not the inspiration here, but rather the ghetto house sound pioneered by the Dance Mania label. Live At Robert Johnson regular Orson Wells lines the first X-Files release under the name O-Wells, with Slam Dunx consisting of two ripe dancefloor tools rich in x-rated loops and banging 909s.
