Boomkat Product Review:
Giles Aiken shuffles back to Die Orakel for another hand of off-centre dancefloor interrogators.
Leaving Planet Giegling momentarily, Edward producer Giles Aiken plots a familiar course to Frankfurt and Oli Hafenbauer’s playfully odd Die Orakel label for this triplet of diverse beat abstractions.
Leading out with the title track, Shufflehead finds the German in loose and limber form pitched somewhere between Don’t DJ and Conny Plank. The spaciness of that cut contrasts markedly with the greasy EBM strangler Dekta – one for fans of John T. Gast’s Apron outing last year.
If you ever wondered what the Diwali riddim getting the Demdike Testpressing treatment might sound like, then your curiosity will be satisfied with the grubby, spiritual incantations of Etern.
