I have had the pleasure of knowing about this gentleman’s music for many years now, and I have never been dissapointed. He is incredibly gifted at what he does and continues to push the envelope both with his live sets and his music. He has been a force for EDM especially for the scene here in America. Richie is originally from Windsor, Ontario, but he started crossing the border to nearby Detroit to DJ starting at the age of 17. His style during his early phase was mostly house bordering on techno. Along with some greats like Jeff Mills and Carl Craig, Hawtin was the face of the second wave of techno. For the past 15 years, Richie Hawtin has changed his style in the subtlest of ways, but his passion for minimal music has led to his status as a legend. His work has defined the genre and changed the art of performance for EDM artists globally. Hawtin’s sets are an experience in themselves, and his technical mastery simply can’t be overlooked.
