The music legend and techno mastermind,,RICHIE HAWTIN, returns to SF for another unforgettable performance with Paco Osuna opening! 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 performancea. The influence of Hawtin's tracks are nothing short of cataclysmic, and surely Techno would sound very different without his quixotic vision.
HAWTIN has made his mark on electronic music by being both inventive and innovative. His career takes him all over the world with tour dates in over 25 nations on average each year. Born in Banbury, England, his family moved to Windsor in the late 1970's. As a teenager Hawtin found inspiration to make music from a combination of techno music from Detroit, his father's record collection and an obsession with computers, video games and science fiction. As a recording artist, producer, remixer, live performer and DJ, his productions are recorded in Windsor and released on his now legendary Plus 8 & Minus record labels. Today, in between touring the globe he spends time in his studios in Windsor, Canada and Berlin, Germany.
Not content with technology of today, Hawtin has had a unique vision in developing creative options for musicians to create and perform electronic music with, most notably with early involvement in the Final Scratch DJ system and his own modifications to DJ equipment. His attention to detail and desire to push the envelope both in the studio and on the stage continues to be his beacon of determination.
