Richie Hawtin is the key figure of modern electronic music, a true innovator and one of the founders of the central techno label Minus, but also the legendary Plus 8. In 2014, Hawtin resurrected his famous alter-ego Plasticman and released a new album – “EX”, which also became his first release since 2003. A true revolutionary, Hawtin is responsible for the popularization of techno music, as well as the development of tech tools used by contemporary leading DJ superstars, and has, together with the company “Allen & Heath”, recently created a new type of mixer which many believe will cause yet another revolution on the DJ scene.
