- 1000 Lights In The Sky (Part 2) by The Exaltics
8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 13 April 2011
Not familiar with this artist or label and the press release gives away very little other than it's part one of trilogy of records that have been repressed in limited quantities (100 each) by a label based out in Den Haag, Netherlands by a collective of mad techno heads. Lucky for them lads, they are privy to the use of various government buildings around the city and occupy these buildings for the purposes of creative living. On top of that the government helps fund these projects to keep the venues occupied and in use, they even supplement bands to go there! I've been fortunate enough to perform at some of these spots and they are totally bad ass. One of them has a bizarre acoustic chamber that they use to pump out continuous drone tones that can enjoyed from various levels of the structure. Not likely to see anything like that happening in the UK anytime soon... The shame. Anyway, we have all three parts of this trilogy but I should imagine we'll only have time to listen to this one. Exaltics excel in the proud tradition of funky techno. They began life in 2006 and have been working on their own techno language known to the artists as "solaronemusic". Everything on '1000 Lights In The Sky' sounds as fresh as it does familiar and veers from robotic techno into the arenas of acid house and dark electro with relative ease and consistency. It's pretty much straight ahead, no frills techno of the finest quality and would sound absolutely amazing pumped out of a massive sound system whilst muntered on a load of Euro drugs. Not quite as effective on a Wednesday afternoon at work but still ace.
