Richie Hawtin

[ CAN ]

Richie Hawtin is a genuine original. His critical acclaim spans the creative realm of the fine art community to the technological vanguard. He is the business mind behind Plus8 and MINUS Records, nurturing a plethora of talent from Speedy J in the early 90s to Gaiser in the 2010s. And, of course, he is Plastikman, perhaps that most of all, electronic musician par excellence, maintaining an underground agenda of avant-garde electronica over six albums (and two compilations). There aren’t many artists who has done more that Richie Hawtin to move the electric music scene forward. His most recent project is the CLOSE project, an audiovisual DJ release showcasing the performer on stage deconstructing tracks and combining it into new unique versions. You can rest assured that you are in the highly capable hands of a true techno pioneer.
