The Exaltics :: 10 Million Light Years EP (Solar One)

It’s great to keep the old days alive, to celebrate those that started everything, but I’d be inclined to think that we are now living in the day of electro and the sooner we realize that, and support it, the better. Electronic music is just as retrospective as it is future gazing. For a sound […]

Crotaphytus :: Acanthosaura (Further)

A fascinating mix of live shots, library music, field recordings and cold hard machine sounds from this pioneering pair. Crotaphytus. Who? It’s not a name you hear very often, but the members of this group have made a pretty big impact on electronic music in their short careers: Robert Witschakowski and Nico Jagiella. This pair […]

The Exaltics :: Past, present, future (Video interview)

Welcome to something new we’re going to be doing at Igloo Magazine, Video Interviews. To inaugurate this new series we’ve been fortunate enough to tempt Robert Witschakowski (aka The Exaltics) away from his machines to have a chat with us. Many of you will know Rob for his releases on labels like Bunker, Shipwrec and […]

Val_Ex :: Riot (Solar One)

This new outfit sees Arne Weinberg, with his penchant for modular music, team up with The Exaltics for a very special album. Beats help to relieve the pressure but cannot alleviate the overarching sense of fear sculpted by this pairing. The freshly formed Val_Ex must be one of the most tantalizing collaborations of 2014. This […]

EXS / The Exaltics :: Double review (Solar One / Shipwrec)

I keep thinking that the level of quality, the breadth of variety and the expert execution can’t continue; that there has to be chink in The Exaltics analogue armor. But time and time again this Jena man delivers brilliance. It is becoming difficult to keep up with the productivity of The Exaltics. The Jena based […]

The Exaltics :: Some Other Place Vol 1 (Clone)

Spearheading a campaign of blackened machine music, spirited sounds carved from cold-hearted machinery. The rise of The Exalitics seems to be unstoppable. Robert Witschakowski is going from strength to strength. His Solar One Music imprint is clocking up more and more quality releases whilst the German producer himself is gracing imprints like Crème Organization, Bunker […]

The Exaltics meets Elec PT.1 :: The Exaltics Meets… (Solar One Music)

Solar One is consistently testing and retesting the definitions of electro whilst creating coarse and soulful machine music. This latest move into acid sounds isn’t unprompted, The Exaltics flirting with the 303 in tracks like “Annihilate the Planet.”  Elec Pt 1 is continuing his exploration into darker side of electronics and serving up some stunning […]

The Exaltics / Morphology :: The Exaltics Meets… (Solar One Music)

Witschakowski has consistently tested the definitions of Electro, ranging from soulful mechanics to red-blooded machinery. On this EP he does so again. Likewise, Morphology play with the parameters. The Finns, across their catalogue, have experimented within the limits of the sound; here injecting darkening moods to counteract the more laconic pulses. A thought-provoking and expertly […]

The Exaltics / Gosub :: The Exaltics Meets Gosub (Solar One Music)

The Exaltics serve up two warming Electro tracks, toeing the line between detached and inviting. Gosub tears down any welcoming aspects, instead establishing an uneasy twosome of Electro dappled with disaffection. There are a handful of Electro labels and artists that are consistently releasing pure quality; Solar One Music and The Exaltics (Robert Witschakowski) are two that […]

It is not just the roster of talent that the label has cultivated over the last five years, but the quality of their releases. In 2005 Solar One […]

The Exaltics :: They Arrive (Crème Eclipse)

This is not simple straight electro, but a sound that folds elements together. The sound is founded in the electro tradition, with the tracks hinting at space music, soundtracks and Detroit. [Purchase] Amidst all the resurgences, the return of house and the second coming of minimal synth, some artists have continued to burn the midnight […]
