Aye there was a wee acid belter about 5 mins ago

0 |

There's auld spastik on now. Never get tired of that track.

0 |

quality listen, absolute hero no matter what nonsense people spurt about him now

0 |

aye, some lad

makes a bit sad about the rave

0 |

LOL @ auld spastik

0 |

Really enjoyed the interview

0 |

I loved hawtin. Obsessed about everything he did for a while. Loved how he came across as a techno nerd making twisted music ranging from dirty acid techno to stripped down minimal drum tracks

Not so much of the floppy fringed mincer he has become

0 |

Yeah it was good he has a brilliant head on him for marketing and image never mind the music - sort of reminds me a little bit of Marilyn Manson in that respect

0 |

He knows the industry and worked it.

Fuck it, I'm moving to Berlin. Whos in?

0 |

He definetly did

Bit shit techno became focused on image and marketing. Does he still make any decent trax? Avoided anything by him for years

0 |

I'm not sure but he is playing a lot of music produced by Hobo and Matador (who are both on Minus) in his sets at the minute

0 |

This recent one by him is decent

he plays absolute gash these days

www.discogs.com/Richie... state of that....even plays tracks by an artist called white noise.....thats how bad he has become

0 |

Not feeling that. Sounds really dated while his stuff used to sound fresh and different.

That sounds like something he made 15 yrs ago

0 |

few of those minus boys like gaiser matador and hobo have a few dehcent efforts. but jesus, most of it is pure pish.

0 |

Its ok nik....best from a bad bunch of his recent stuff...Saw a video of him playing that slinky track and looked like it went down well.....

He's seems to have went up his own arse knocking out his own mnml toothbrush range whilst drinking sake

0 |

Fuck him, looks like a total arse hole. Didn't someone link a video of him fucking about with some other DJs mixer when he was playing? Just his face in that made me hate him all by itself, lucky he never got buried.

0 |

is he the David Beckham of tecno?

0 |

Auld spastik Ritchie, what a guy

0 |

gherkin

0 |

serious cringe at watching that again

0 |

state of that clip

0 |

Musta been on the gear thinking he owned the place.

Theres another one from the same event where he faints and beyer just shrugs his shoulders and laughs at him

0 |

I have pretty much all of his Plastikman stuff on either vinyl or CD (with the exception of that ridiculous Arkives package he released), not to mention all the DE9 compilations. Was a massive fanboy for years! Now though....I have absolutely no interest in anything he puts his hand to. More of a marketing guru than a DJ now! His wee ENTER (the pool) videos he does after his Ibiza gigs are pure cringe, felt wick for Klock & Dettmann in this :S

0 |

ha seen that myself ryan. He musta give them a few quid for that. Also good marketing for them. With hawtin biggin them up they will appeal more to that new breed of clubber you see these days.

0 |

what the fuck was that?

I have no volume in work and i think I might be glad in this instance.

0 |

jesus thats embarassing. its just hawtin like interviewin klock and dettmann.

0 |

With them all jumping in the swimming pool? Fuck me.

MAWD BAWSTERDS!!

0 |

this aint techno

0 |

If you were gonna make a loada coin out of it and getting to play amnesia where you prob get paid a bomb id happily jump in and sip a few saki's with richie

0 |

As if they're short of a few quid though.

0 |

i'm not saying he shouldn't go that route. It's his life and people are going to go were the coin is but you can still hate it and rip the bag clean out of that shite

i can't think of any dance music artist who has becoem the complete opposite of what they once were

0 |

*cant think of any other dance music artist

0 |

Klock and Detmann are probably loving it and dont give a fuck...Not like they are gonna start playing shit tunes.

Dj's like Luciano have went to the dogs now too with popularity....Now running around with pink streaks in his hair and doing nights like this in ibiza www.cadenzarecords.com...

0 |

yeah Nik

nearly all those guys seem to have lost the love and are just after the coin

i wouldnt fancy bein a 50 year old touring dj mind u, but what else are they gonna do?

0 |

Cant really blame them now..They've already proved what they are capable of years ago and now just wanna make a loada coin for retirement. When you see videos of them playing it just looks like they are going through the motions on a laptop..Just dancing around...more like a show than an actual dj set.

^^yes^^

0 |

im not saying they shouldn't, as i said nobody can tell people what they should do but it's sad they can't do both

doesn't really annoy me as he has zero influenece on anything i like and i have zero interest in him as a dj. there are tons of other djs filling hios boots as an exciting dj and producer. he can take his mincey butlins techno and milk it to the cows come home as ther only time i'll ever has the mispleasure of experiencing it is laughing at clips people link up on forums

0 |

'mincey butlins techno' - liked that one

0 |

me too, although if he was playing somewhere handy I would prob go and see him if i'm honest

0 |

I saw him two weeks ago in Germany and I enjoyed him he was top bill of a stage he curated the line up was - Nina Kravitz, Magda, Josh Wink, Matador & Hawtin.

I have hardly listened to his earlier stuff so I can't really compare anything to what he plays now

0 |

0 |

anyone ever find out who chinned him when he played belfast about ten years ago?

0 |

just giving this a listen now, quite interesting

0 |
