Seeing this guy play at Minus, Ministry London a few years back was not only one of the best shows I’d seen in years.. it totally blew all the other DJ’eys away that night. It’s kinda like comparing the new and cheesy Jupiter 80 to the old and wonderful Jupiter 8 … Hawtin was mountains ahead of the other guys and he really portrayed what minimal stood for. I find today a lot of minimal records are bridging into progressive and using those large pads and whoosh uplifters which goes against the reason why minimal was invented… to rid us of those cliché intervals.
This new record from Plastikman is fantastic defining the purity of his work and exploring new worlds with the sound design. I recommend picking up the vinyl released later next month on Bleep.com
