Richie Hawtin is a English-Canadian electronic musician and internationally-touring DJ who was an influential part of Detroit techno's second wave of artists in the early 1990s.
Hawtin is best known for his abstract, minimal works under the alias Plastikman, a moniker he continued to use into the mid 2000s. Hawtin is renowned for DJing minimal techno sets making use of laptop computers and digital mixing equipment.
In May 1990, Hawtin fellow second-waver John Acquaviva founded the Plus 8 record label, which they named after their turntable's pitch adjust function. In 1998, Hawtin launched Minus, primarily for his own projects. In 2006, Hawtin collaborated with choreographer Enzo Cosimi to create a composition called "9.20" for the Winter Olympics opening ceremony.
In 2007, Slices magazine launched a series of biographies called "Pioneers of Electronic Music", with the first issue being a roughly 60 minute documentary dedicated to the life of Richie Hawtin. The film follows his career from his early days crossing the border from Canada into Detroit to his current life in Berlin.
