Richie Hawtin - Europe Trance DJ

Global DeeJay Richie Hawtin

Richie Hawtin

Detroit’s techno scene owes much to Richie Hawtin. Hawtin was actually born in England, Windsor in the early 70s before he moved with his parents to Canada. An early interest in music across the river, bought him to Detroit. Richie Hawtin along with Detroit pioneer Carl Craig helped in bringing on the second wave of Detroit techno with resounding success to boot. A DJ, producer, and a record label owner, Richie started off by DJing at underground parties. He was initially with Detroit’s Shelter where he met his partner John Acquaviva and both of them were to launch Plus 8 Recording label.

The unique techno sound of electro house, very highly danceable, owes its origin to Richie Hawtin. In fact, this trend setting style is synonymous with the Detroit city dance music scene. Hawtin’s mastery of equipment like the Roland TB – 303 bass machines is well known as is his mastery of acid house and electro recordings. Hawtin made it really big in 1993 when he signed up a deal with record company Nova Mute. He was soon a major star in Europe where he enjoyed unprecedented success with his ‘Plastikman’. Europe found him irresistible.

Whether playing in Europe or in the US or for that matter in any part of the world, Hawtin’s ability to connect with his fans is amazing. In May 2000, more than 200,000 frenzied fans witnessed his great performance in the Detroit Electronic Festival, where he shared stage with stalwarts like Juan Atkins and Derrick May, among others.

His smash hit ‘Consumed’ stands testimony to his musical abilities. A series of mix albums including 1995’s ‘Mix Mag Live’, 1999’s ‘Decks’, ‘EFX & 909’ and 2001’s ‘DE9: Closer to the Edit’ and 2005’s ‘DE9: Transitions’, have firmly entrenched him his deserved place among DJs and producers.
