British born, Canada raised and Berlin based, Richie Hawtin has been an icon for live performance in the genres of techno and minimal for a long time. Having debuted his new live show ‘CLOSE’ at last years Coachella he then took it to Sydney Opera House, All Points East and Primavera.
Now Hawtin will return to the UK with his live show, playing two shows this October. First off he will play Glasgow’s O2 Academy on October 11th before London’s Roundhouse on October 12th. Swedish artist TM404 will support him for both shows.
Richie explained: “I have spent most of my life behind a table half-concealed. The CLOSE show removes the barrier between artist and audience and it feels like I’m in that moment with everybody else. It feels very powerful. If I can get to that point during the show with everybody, that’s why I got into this music. Being locked in this cloud of frequencies that feels like its from tomorrow; that you’re living in the future”.
