The Exaltics

For over 20 years by now Robert Heise is a part of the electronic music scene. He started his career as resident DJ at the Club Kassablanca in Jena, where he performed with big players such as Robert Hood, Jeff Mills or Claude Young. While organizing several Electronica parties with Dj Mikk in and around Jena, he was able to show his talents and give the parties/ music his own drive. Robert founded the project The Exaltics in 2006 as well as the electro/ techno label SolarOneMusic with his long term friend Nico Jagiella. Since then he published countless 12"s and several LP's with labels like Clone, Crème Organization, Bunker or his own label SolarOneMusic and worked during that time with outstanding artists like Drexciya´s Gerald Donald, Helena Hauff or ERP for example. He turned his deep cinematic and most of all charismatic electro into his own trademark. Another signature are his special dark driven Acid Techno. During his intense live performances Robert present his unique version of electro and acid music.

The Exaltics meets Helena Hauff - Futuros EP

Booom! The third one in a very special series of shape picture discs on SOM. After the collaboration with Gerald Donald and Egyptian Lover on the last 2 volumes this time The Exaltics invites the one and only Helena Hauff. A1 starts with a short eerie intro and after that they come straight to the point with an UFO electro techno stomper with vocals from Helena. The flip side is floating around with alot of echoes and delays melodies and 303s, Helenas beautiful voice and this special old school feeling. Again the artwork is done by the amazing Godspill aka Mehdi Rouchiche. Every record comes with a download code. The outer contour of the picture is also the contour of the record and makes this release once again to a high collectable item..

Reaching the milestone of our 100th episode today, first of all, we would like to thank all the artists that helped to curate this journey and of course all of the astronauts supporting us while we are closing in on 3 years in space. Be sure to stay tuned in as we continue our explorations with a few big updates coming up. With that out the way let us focus on the absolute icon that will host this new chapter: Based in the humble city of Jena, dedicating his early days as a beacon for it bringing in artists like Jeff Mills & Robert Hood to light up the scene. This pivotal role would move over to the entire electro underground with mixes for Resident Advisor/Dekmantel/Groove Magazine, EP/LP’s on labels like Crème Organization, Cultivated Electronics, Clone West Coast Series (with another release in the work including vocals by Paris The Black Fu) and of course his project, together with his life-long friend Nico Jagiella, SolarOneMusic. This carefully-curated label has been one of the big inspiration sources of our series and everything that is coming up in the next months and if you are not familiar with it yet; they have released music of Animistic Beliefs, Queen Helena Hauff(an upcoming collab EP with The Exaltics in the works), Das Muster, E.R.P. and of course the man himself (with the stunning Das Heise Experiment 2 including its prequel). Also definitely have a look at its sublabels; Between Places, Rattleznake & Unhöerbar. Now for the mix, Rob blended his favourites of late and tried to transform his feelings in this weird 2020 with the help of his indistinguishable scenic electro with an ever-present dip of acid. Let his music do the talking.

Robert Witschakowski-Jockel has been a core part of electro's evolution since the late nineties. From early days bringing big names like Jeff Mills and Robert Hood to his hometown of Jena as a promoter, he soon elevated himself to become one of the best acid live acts in the game. Nowadays, he runs his own carefully-curated Solar One Music, has collaborated with Drexciya's Gerald Donald and released his own shadowy electro on Shipwrec, Clone West Coast Series and Crème Organization. He is a hugely prolific artist who is always tweaking and evolving his sound while staying true to his original sci-fi visions. All of that feeds into this week's mix, which is a bumpy, rough riding electro adventure that unfolds with a real sense of narrative. From the icy and high speed launch it quickly moves on to moments of smooth-cruising calm, guides you through solar storms and frantic acid work outs. The texture change, too, from ragged and frazzled to shiny and seductive, but are all stitched together seamlessly by a master of the form.


Dimensional Shifting

Dimensional Shifting

The Exaltics & Heinrich Mueller - Dimensional Shifting - Solar One Music Four years after their almighty collaboration on “Project STS-31 (Hubble Telescope Series Vol.3)”, Solar One Music’s cofounder Robert Witschakowski and half of Dopplereffekt duo Gerald Donald return with another cosmic album of their instantly recognizable trademark. Featuring ten detailed and luminous cuts of beautifully crafted emotional music, with deep narrative over tough machine groove, the opus takes you on a moody trip across craggy soundscapes made of abrasive tones, crossing the red line between tight-strapped melodic waves, subaquatic underground electro, and intricate structures. Expect nothing but stripped down layers mixed with chunky synthetic bass lines and stellar melodies over pounding 808 drums on this future classic tinted with nostalgia. Built as a journey through unknown territories, much anticipating “Dimensional Shifting” oscillates between moments of bravery on the dancefloor and moody sequences, keeping intact the aesthetic signature of the Jena-based electro emissary and the legend from Detroit.
