Elec Pt1 becomes the latest collaborator in The Exaltics Meets series following prior introductions to Morphology and Gosub. For the uninitiated, Elec Pt1 was part of Bunker Records' second coming, originally '90s acid house label based out of the Hauge, said to have funded their earlier releases with "money made from selling LSD (silver surfers!)". German speakers will be able to decipher Elec Pt1's "Drei Chinesen Mit Dem Acidbass", a potential retrospective nod to Bunker's (now legendary) "acid planet" squat parties. A flabby kick, crushed hats and white noise sounding more like a baby robot tantrum than synthesis opens "The Party", before unexpected doo-doo-doo vocals become the tracks centrepiece. The Exaltics opens his side of the 12" with throbbing drums and hardedge acid in "The Midnight Connexion", which later gives way to uplifting chords. Acid and breakneck drum loops make up "Nichts Aber Auch Nichts" which also receives some euphoric synth treatment.
This weeks psy essential comes from the always-on-point Solar One label, and the launch of an exciting new series of collaborations entitled 'The Exaltics meets...'. Putting them up alongside a new artist each time, this one is down to Shad T Scott aka Gosub and the result is four diverse and interesting tracks of progressive and psy. Exaltics offerings pack the most energy, especially on the shattering melodies of 'My Language'. While Gosub bring something totally different on the twisted vocal led 'Plug In'.. Get stuck in and see which is doing it for you.
