Richie Hawtin is one busy man! The Minus label head and techno inventor has just completed his first-ever Ibiza residency (at Space) with hugely successful 12 week run of 'Enter'. A quick stop at ADE in Amsterdam over the weekend (check the epic video below) and then straight onto a 17-day-and-night tour of the US and Canada called CNTRL: Beyond EDM. The tour, which he’ll embark upon with friends like Loco Dice and DJ TechTools’ Ean Golden, and which will feature guests speakers and DJs such as John Acquaviva, Carl Craig, and Kevin Saunderson, will find Hawtin hitting US college campuses by day to teach a bit of techno’s history and technology to students and then by night connecting all those dots in a club atmosphere in the same city.
Amazingly he found the time for an indepth chat with beatport.com about the challenges of Enter in ibiza, 'I would say CONTAKT was one level, Plastikman was the next level, and Ibiza was definitely the most challenging thing we’ve ever done' to what feels like to inspire the artists like Caribou and Deadmau5 'I think Caribou and Deadmau5, and even some other people, these people have been developing out of my radar. How did they find my music? And it’s interesting that that inspired them. I think it’s just showed me that electronic music is so wide that with all these new people getting into it—young kids, old kids—there are so many stories to be told.'
