Lecture: Richie Hawtin (New York, 2013)
The original plastik technocrat in New York at the 2013 edition of the Red Bull Music Academy.
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 helped develop 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, Richie Hawtin lives in the moment, on the cusp of the future.
