Artist: The Exaltics / Morphology
Title: The Exaltics Meets Morphology
Format: 12"
Label: Solar One Music
Rated: *****
Here we are with a new 12" of the "Exaltics meets" series, where Robert Witschakowski this time shares with Morphology this second release after meeting Gosub on the first one. As for the first time, we have two tracks for each band. The Exaltics open side A with "Changing Things", a track that combine upbeat rhythms and paced arpeggios with spacey pads, creating an effect of "changement in stillness". "Quiet Earth" exalts the sidereal effect thanks to deep bass lines combined to windy synth sounds and echoed tiny melodies. Coming from Finland, Morphology is the duo formed by Matti Turunen and Michael Diekmann that is already known by followers of the electro sounds thanks to their album and ten 12" they released in the last three years. Here they open side B with "Neural Network", a track that has a bouncy classic electro bass line with 808 syncopated rhythms which dance with spacey pads and picked synth cello sounds. The second tune is "Stochastic Resonance", a track based on similar sounds but whose atmosphere is more tense thanks to sparse percussive synth bells sounds and space synth inserts. I noticed that on both releases of the series The Exaltics composed its tracks according to the atmosphere of the guest band, so I asked to Robert and he confirmed that this is what he wanted these release to sound like: two bands, one atmosphere. Anyway, you'll read more on the forthcoming The Exaltics interview.
