Richie Hawtin

There are few underground DJs that have had such an enduring influence on the direction and sound of the scene as Richie Hawtin.

Richie Hawtin is a genuine original. His critical acclaim spans the creative realm of the fine art community to the technological vanguard. Meanwhile, as a performing artist, he is constantly pushing conceptual frontiers, moving things forward, welcoming as many as he can to ideas and experiences that would have seemed pure science fiction when he began his career.

 

Hawtin is British-born and Canadian-raised. 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). He returned spectacularly to the live circuit in 2010 with his Plastikman 1.5 incarnation which held its own among the new EDM generation of Skrillex, Deadmau5, etc, stars to whom Hawtin is both old guard ambassador and hero.

 

In recent years his ENTER. party—which called Space Ibiza its spiritual home—has flown the flag for Hawtin’s precise brand of minimal techno, and introduced a generation of club heads to the joys of Sake.

 

A true luminary and genuine innovator, Richie Hawtin is one of the cherished legends of dance music and we’re excited to see what he brings to Morocco this September.
