Richie Hawtin’s triumphant return to the stage as Plastikman in 2010 proved that his best-known alias is as innovative and as relevant as ever. Hawtin has taken Plastikman’s most classic material, originally released between 1993 and 2003, and reworked it for a truly live performance accompanied by mind-bending, synchronized visuals-a sound and light show like no other, one that collapses the distance between present-day festivals and the uncompromisingly underground warehouse parties of the mid ’90s.
For many attendees, this is their first taste of Plastikman. Since 2003, Hawtin has been far better known simply as Richie Hawtin, the celebrated DJ and mastermind behind the Minus label. Some fans today were still infants when Plastikman’s acid ripple first began streaming from Hawtin’s basement studio in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
For long-time devotees and new fans alike, Hawtin now presents Plastikman’s Arkives, a comprehensive release that pulls together 17 years of the Plastikman story so far, including remastered versions of all six previously released Plastikman albums and a trove of rarities, new remixes, unreleased sessions and new material. Arkives is a strictly limited, made-to-order edition, which means only as many copies will be manufactured as have been pre-ordered. Arkives Analog is the vinyl version on 6 pieces of 180 gram vinyl, featuring exclusive tracks taken from the Replikants remixes, plus a limited edition Plastikman poster. The set comes in a special deluxe custom box. Just as Hawtin and his crew used to cap admission to their underground parties, Arkives’ edition will be strictly limited and it’s a once in a lifetime chance to experience the full sweep of Plastikman’s journey so far.
