After years following the electronic music scene in Detroit via his hometown of Windsor, Ontario, Richie Hawtin's career really began in 1990 when he started his own label, PLUS8 RECORDS with his long-time friend and ally JOHN AQUAVIVA. The pair used the label to produce tracks using aliases such as States of Mind and Cybersonik. He set the techno world alight with Plastikman's birth on the ’Spastik' single and 'Sheet One' album in 1993 all the while releasing tracks as FROM WITHIN, CONCEPT and more on the PLUS8 label. It was on these later releases that he started to push the concept of Minimal Techno into the consciousness of the clubbing scene all the while expanding his PLASTIKMAN alter ego. What began as stark techno, bloomed into more thoughtful fare such as 1998's strange, wonderful "Consumed" album on his new label MINUS. Since 2010, Richie has been touring extensively trotting out the PLASTIKMAN moniker again for an innovative live show that incorporated LED screens that were beyond the reach of many electronic musicians of the time. In 2012, Hawtin created his incredible ENTER. experience at Space, Ibiza, a distillation of his vision, a five-room adventure impeccably designed, boasting all-night ecstatic dancing. The success of those nights was so widespread that Richie was once again able to tour the world bringing the ENTER experience to audiences everywhere. It's been over ten years since Richie moved his MINUS label and himself from Windsor, Ontario and transplanted himself in Germany / Berlin and he has proven himself to be a leader amongst his peers including SVEN VATH and RICARDO VILLALOBOS. A true pioneer of the electronic music scene, Richie continues to delight his enormous fan base whether he be in Europe, North America, South America, Asia, Oceania.
