Plastikman, Richie Hawtin’s new album!

Richie Hawtin is officially bringing his Plastikman moniker out for another go. Just last week, the producer announced the forthcoming release of EX, the first Plastikman album since 2003. Today, the album is out for digital release, as well as for full – and free – streaming. 

“The music came out of me effortlessly as I was very inspired by the opportunity to play in this beautiful architectural space renowned more for art than music. The location also allowed me to step far away from the dancefloor, giving me a huge amount of freedom to EXplore any sonic ideas that I had. Art, music, architecture, painting, sculpture – these mediums are supposed to live together.”

Later this week, EX will see release on vinyl, CD and a limited-edition SubPac S1 that costs just a tad more. Also happening in the coming days is Hawtin’s debut of the new Plastikman show on June 12 at Sónar Barcelona, featuring a “specially constructed LED obelisk.”

Richie Hawtin’s ENTER. 2014 season line-up

No one on the Ibiza island during the last few seasons could have missed the black dot. The striking logo of Richie Hawtin’s ENTER. quickly became the symbol of the most discussed new venture in Ibiza for its debut year in 2012 and has – no surprises – returned for another season in 2014 after another successful stint at the club in 2013.

Hawtin will take over Thursday nights at the award-winning club Space in Playa d’en Bossa for 12 weeks (July 5 to September 20), curating four rooms built on the principles of music, sake, technology and experience. Hawtin has a strong history with the island of Ibiza thanks to his long-term contribution and association with Sven Väth’s Cocoon creation at Amnesia. Hawtin feels now is the time to make his own statement on the island, to provide a new platform for the artists and music he supports, and to lead Ibiza into the island’s next phase of development and innovation.

The full line of ENTER. ‘S 2014 season is on 65 names to load the Space Ibiza in 14 weeks. Along with Hawtin’s own big names like Nina Kraviz, Maya Jane Coles, Maceo Plex and Dubfire. ENTER. will also feature Sydney native and now Berlin resident Bella Sarris.

Sven Vath, Luciano, Guy Gerber and tINI will all make guest appearances and on August 28, undisputed king of cool Dixon will play an exclusive all night long set.

Avicii cancels Perth and Brisbane Future 2013 Shows

Going directly to the hospital for stomach related issues after landing in Brisbane, Avicii has had to regrettably cancel his headlining shows at both the Brisbane and Perth Future Music 2013  Festivals.

“It is with deep regret that we inform you of the decision to cancel Avicii’s performances at Future Music Festival in Brisbane and Perth,” FMF stated. “Avicii went directly to the hospital upon landing in Brisbane for stomach related issues. He has been hospitalised since then. Over the past couple of days we have been monitoring his condition and we have all been optimistic about him being healthy enough to perform. Unfortunately the doctors are not willing to discharge him at this time which means he will sadly be unable to appear tonight or at tomorrow’s festival.”

Future has advised that the headliner “looks forward to playing the remaining shows next weekend” and will be replaced by Hardwell for the time being, who will play extended sets for the Perth and Brisbane shows.

Future Music will be on this weekend in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide with appearances by The ProdigyBoys Noize , Zeds DeadBorgoreKill the NoiseCosmic GateSven VathRichie Hawtin,  MadeonRudimental and so much more.
