Richie Hawtin has crisscrossed the globe far and wide for several years as a DJ of the highest calibre. A fervent user of Final Scratch, the software that revolutionized turntable manipulation in our digital era, Hawtin was one of the first to explore and push the limits of this technology. Hawtin recently returned to work in his studio and is currently entering a new creative phase. His performance at MUTEK will combine his DJ skills and his creativity as a composer, the two dimensions merging by way of digital console. For those who appreciate his groundbreaking talents, this is a boon. We can't help but dream of another memorable performance, like the one at the Media Lounge in 1999.
