Richie Hawtin and Loco Dice Launch CNTRL: Beyond EDM, A Unique North American College Tour

This could quite possibly be the most important music tour to hit college campuses in like forever. For one, one of electronic music biggest innovators (that would be Richie Hawtin—and there’s no knocking Loco Dice’s contributions either) is behind the tour, so there’s no shortage of quality and of course it’ll be high on the fun meter—the guys definitely know a thing or two about entertainment. Then there’s the fact that this will not only be an educational experience on the dancefloor, but CNTRL: Beyond EDM will also combine educational daytime lectures focusing on the techno and technology aspects of modern-day electronic music.

Richie Hawtin will talk about the use of technology to control creativity, Hawtin’s sound technician, Johannes Krämer, will discuss the importance of sound quality, Loco Dice will rep what it means to be an old-school DJ wrapped in modern technology, Ean Golden from DJ Tech Tools will talk digital DJing and controllerism. There’s a bunch of special guest speakers and artists lined up for this.

Leave it to Hawtin to take the history and the future and provide an entertaining platform to the kids that’ll no doubt be our next line of producers, DJs, technology innovators or simply advocates of the sounds we love. Merrymaking begins pretty soon...
