This program marks the greatly anticipated return of RICHIE HAWTIN, here to showcase his record labels MINUS / PLUS 8. Hawtin is one of the pioneers and founders of the minimal techno movement. Initially an ultra minimalist that went under the guise of Plastikman, he relegated production to the backburner for several years to become one of the most sought after and technologically innovative techno DJs on the planet. Having achieved success, Hawtin is now seizing the moment to relaunch his labels, welcome unknown talents, and return anew to the creative path. This stop at MUTEK constitutes the ideal moment to reveal his new ways of working, and to herald Hawtin's return to his first love: creating and exploring minimalist rhythms. Enriched with the talents of MATTHEW DEAR (aka FALSE) and MAGDA, the night combines the pleasures of dancing and sophisticated exploration for what will surely be one of the festival's most moving moments. Opening the night is JEREMY P. CAULFIELD, director of the DUMB-UNIT label, whose effective minimal techno has the weighty task of warming up the audience.
