The Brvtalist is proud to present a new mix by Berlin-based project The Exaltics. Founded in 2006 by electronic music veteran Robert Witschakowski, it quickly became renown for its unique mixture of acid and dark techno fused with experimental electro and other left field cosmic influences. Since its inception the project has released a ton of stellar 12"s on labels such as Clone, Creme Organization, Bunker and Solar One, which is also label Witschakowski founded 10 years ago. It was recently announced The Exaltics will release a collaborative record with Heinrich Mueller entitled, Project STS-31- Spiralgalaxie, marking Solar One's 40th release and tenth anniversary.
The artist has titled this mix, You Don't Know Who Comes On Earth Tonight, and it is a cinematic journey through the project's signature sound and alien-centric mythos. It includes all original material and a punishing remix. This mix comes just ahead of next week's Krake Festival in Berlin where The Exaltics are one of the incredible headlining acts performing live on Saturday, July 30th at Grießmühle in Neukölln. We also had the pleasure of interviewing the artist and you can find our Q&A below:
The Brvtalist: With over two decades of playing electronic music, what inspired you to create The Exaltics and what is the mission of the project?
The Exaltics: In the old days, I was mostly a DJ and not so much into producing music but that changed. I had so many influences and I wanted to do something. Collecting records was always a big passion for me but I knew I must do my own thing someday. Today, I couldn't breathe without releasing music. Deep, dark, soundtrack-ish electro and acid music - thats the mission for me in the musical landscape.
TB: Talk a little bit about the mix you contributed to The Brvtalist. We love that it's all original material and infuses many different genres.
TE: It's all material I recorded in the last few years. I did this mix before I decided to play "live" and it's a good overview over my work.
TB: What do you like to bring to The Exaltics live performance and what can people expect at this year's Krake Festival?!
TE: Electro and Acid all the way and maybe some live vocals from the great Emika.
TB: What's coming up next for you?
TE: In September there will be a split LP with Gerald Donald/Heinrich Mueller and myself on our own Solar One music label. It's a long planned project we are very proud of!!!
We would like to thank The Exaltics for this incredible mix and interview. As a two-man live act, The Exaltics have already become known for high energy, mythological live experiences and this is definitely not to be missed.
