These 13 tracks are the end result of many chilled out afternoons and vibey evenings spent in Xfiles’ North London studio, looking for that ideal organic/ digital balance.
In other words, the perfect excuse for hanging out, having a laugh, getting in the zone and pressing record.
This album embraces the endless, on the fly, cut and paste, instant mash up possibilities of Protools and Ableton and avoiding digital perfection at all costs
We are a London based Breaktronica squad.
Our sound is tough, tuneful and optimistic.
We mix breaks and beats with dubby bass, hypnotic tablas, heavy guitars, soulful vocals and spoken word.
Our influences range from Breaks, Bashment, Hip Hop and Dub to Indian classical.
We have had tracks played on Bobby Friction and Nihal's Radio One show, Adil Ray's BBC Asian Network, Resonance and Genetic DruGs berlin based radio show Cyberjam .
Anyone who likes Asian dance music will love this and the way it combines some dark beats (‘Serene Smile') with pure positive happy vibes (‘Electric Flowers') makes it all the more tasteful. The essence of what makes so much on here work is Xfile being a technically solid producer, developing sounds rather than picking them from a preset basket. Aref Durvesh, who has worked with nearly all the top Asian underground groups very rarely puts a step wrong and the back up cast of singers and rappers merely add to the flavours. ‘Electric Flowers' gets a strong 8 out of 10!!!!
