Visual Stimulation via Plastikman
Who is Plastikman? Plastikman is the main recording identity for Canadian DJ/VJ Richie Hawtin. I honestly have never heard of him but apparently you don’t need to, instead to need to see him, live. Check out the video after the break that showcases the visuals at his tour, they’re simply amazing, so much so that I definitely want to look out for him when he comes to NYC.
Hawtin is known for DJing minimal techno sets making use of laptop computers and digital mixing equipment. In May 1990, Hawtin and fellow second-waver John Acquaviva founded the Plus 8 record label, which they named after their turntable’s pitch adjust function.In 1998, Hawtin launched Minus records, a label he uses primarily as a launch pad for his own projects.
