Oliver Hafenbauer's Die Orakel label has been among one of the leftfield house and techno outlets to truly impress us over the last few years. While the range of artists on its catalogue is diverse and increasingly unpredictable, there is a fine thread that connects each and every release with a certain oddball flavour that we love. Giegling regular Edward feels like a perfect fit once again, and the deep house maverick has gone all-out to cater to Die Orakel's strange and wonderful fascination with the bizarre. "Shufflehead", as the name implies, is a mass of shady, stop-start percussion wrapped around a sea of curious, shape-shifting sonics that sound more like field recordings than synth sounds; "Dekta" and "Etern" provide yet more mysticism and hedonic marvel to an EP that can't quite decide on its own identity, a quality that renders it endlessly fascinating.
