Richie Hawtin has always pushed the envelope: he started techno label Plus 8 Records with John Acquaviva at the turn of the ’90s, formed the Minus label empire and developed Final Scratch. His works under the F.U.S.E. guise, the delicious desolation of Plastikman, countless remixes and his groundbreaking works with the Concept series and the Decks, EFX & 909 album are all firmly planted in techno’s history. A fierce advocate of developing technology – as long as it doesn’t detract from the physical experience of community – he’s continued to operate at the limits, whether it be via his WiFi-enabled CONTAKT event series or his successful Ibiza night ENTER.
