With a 20-year-long successful career behind him, DJ and producer Richie Hawtin is one of the most admired and respected artists in the history of electronic music. Despite being born in the UK and raised in Canada, his name is closely connected to the Detroit scene as one of the leading figures of minimalist techno.
Crafter of a unique sound, Hawtin has released a total of 13 studio albums and nine DJ mixes under different alter egos, the most relevant being Plastikman. He is also the business mind behind the prestigious record labels Plus8 and MINUS Records, which release the work of new avant-garde and underground electronic music talents.
In his performances, Hawtin often challenges the limits between a DJ session and a conventional live performance. Over the years, he has created some of the most impressive shows ever seen in the world of electronic music, from his legendary performance at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York to the ENTER project in Ibiza, an impeccably-designed psychedelic installation comprising five rooms.
Hawtin will bring to Mad Cool 2018 his new project RICHIE HAWTIN CLOSE - Spontaneity & Synchronicity, an exploration of the relation between human creativity and technology through a complex mechanism comprising five cameras intimately placed around him. A great show we will have the privilege to see at Mad Cool in July!
