The New Beginning

from by The Exaltics

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    "German producer and Solar One Music co-founder Robert Witschakowski has kept to a rapid clip on the release front, surely to the delight of his followers. Twelve is his fourth solo EP of 2014—the third from his most prominent alias, The Exaltics—and it comes in the midst of an ongoing trilogy on Clone West Coast Series. The EP marks the project's debut on another Dutch label, Shipwrec, and as usual, acid-fried techno and electro rules the day.

    The soft pads and shrill melody of "The New Beginning" make it the most uplifting thing here. But even after a long, almost soothing drop in the middle, a forceful 303 lead returns to make sure the track doesn't get lost in the clouds. "Coroded" and "Downwards" are sterner 4/4 cuts that are stylistically similar, each with ghastly tones sounding off among a mass of tough drums and swarming acid riffs. There's a difference of about 10 BPMs between them—the former is a little slower and funkier, while the latter is a straight-ahead rush.

    Completing the record is a "Downwards" remix from Dutch producer Unit Moebius Anonymous, who makes a shorter loop out of some of the original's acid, and opts for slightly cleaner percussion. Otherwise, a couple of steadily modulated, beeping and buzzing synths—rising high, then diving down low—are the main feature here, making for a more mind-bending affair when compared to the original's physical heft"

"The world is coming to an end, but we don’t care, because we’re moon-tan nocturnal, vinyl consuming animals drifting easy through friendly space. An analog trance, nothing can doom this groove; we’re controlling the vibe, manipulating the madness, sucking in the energy and we’ve cosmic nerving endings, telling us how to move, what to do, where to go and then we know, that it’s time to let go!" ... more
