Richie Hawtin, Pt. 2 (2014)

The second part of our chat with Plastikman himself at the 2014 Red Bull Music Academy in Tokyo. Richie Hawtin has always pushed the envelope: he started Plus 8 Records with John Acquaviva at the turn of the '90s, formed the M_nus empire and developed Final Scratch. His works under the F.U.S.E. guise, the delicious desolation of Plastikman, countless remixes and his groundbreaking works with the Concept series and the Decks, EFX & 909 compilation are all firmly planted in techno's history. A fierce advocate of developing technology as long as it doesn't detract from the physical experience of community, he's continued to operate at the limits, whether it be via his wifi-enabled CONTAKT event series or his successful Ibiza night ENTER. Even after decades in the game, Richie Hawtin lives in the moment, on the cusp of the future.
