Description

Get ready people for this full-throttle M_NUS TOUR featuring the mastermind of techno, Richie Hawtin (aka Plastikman) along with label artists and Heartthrob (LIVE PA). There is hardly anything more invigorating for anyone interested in contemporary electronic music as well as technological culture in general than to bear witness to Hawtin's mesmerizing performance. The influence of Hawtin's tracks are nothing short of cataclysmic, and surely Techno would sound very different without his quixotic vision. We're also thrilled to have Magda back and very much looking forward to the live set by Paris' Heartthrob. It's obviously going to be another rager, so get your ticket right away!

Although he's technically a Canadian, Richie Hawtin will forever be associated with putting his beloved Detroit on the dance music map. Along with fellow Detroit pioneer Carl Craig, Hawtin helped break the second wave of Detroit techno. From north of Detroit in Windsor, Ontario, Hawtin has been a DJ, a producer, a record label owner, and a flag-waver for the underground Detroit scene which is only now getting the respect it deserves in the United States. Hawtin started his career DJing at underground parties in clubs like Detroit's Shelter. There he met his partner, John Acquaviva, and together they launched the influential Plus 8 Recordings label. Hawtin created a unique techno sound, which is regarded as synonymous with the city of Detroit. That sound, electro house, is very minimal, yet highly danceable.
