The consummate artist and man of renowned refined taste has not given an exact release date, but the release is imminent and “imminent means a timeframe in my head… Everybody will find out about it on the day of release.” So, be ready, be prepared, it sounds like it will be instantly released in a variety of formats. Just think of it as the return of a superhero… We do not know exactly when, but he will return in our hour of greatest need…
With only one Plastikman show slated for this year, Hawtin hopes to put greater focus on Plastikman in 2015. He is a busy man curating one of the most respected labels in techno (M_Nus) and setting the standard high in Ibiza with his Enter. Experience, but clearly he has not forgotten the rest of the world. Now that he's revving the well rested Plastikman man engine, we can hope he is gearing up for a world tour.
In December 2013 Hawtin performed as his Plastikman alias live at the Guggenheim museum in New York, and apparently it inspired him to finally finish the album after ten long years. Oh, and no big deal, apparently it only took him 5 days to create the new album… Check out the interview below with Richie where he dished on his thoughts on art and broke the news that we were getting new Plastikman in 2014.
