Richie Hawtin says Plastikman album is “imminent”
Richie Hawtin has revealed that his new album under the Plastikman alias is “imminent”.
Ahead of a show in China, the producer spoke to Time Out Shanghai about his first album in more than ten years as Plastikman, although gave little away apart from the fact that it’s coming soon. Very soon.
“The album is imminent. It’s basically finished. There’s only one Plastikman show, happening later this year, because I hope to gear up the project next year.
“Imminent means a timeframe in my head… everybody will find out about it on the day of release. There’ll be all sorts of formats.”
Last we heard of this was late last year, when Hawtin announced a new Plastikman would be on the way.
Richie Hawtin was also recently announced to perform on the RBMA stage at Movement Festival in Detroit this weekend, alongside Carl Cox and Underground Resistance presents Timeline.
Watch a documentary with Eats Everything ‘super fans’
Bristol producer Eats Everything doesn’t take himself too seriously. A quick glance at his Twitter image – a badger with gyrating penis – and it’s a clear indicator of his personality.
It doesn’t come as much of a shock then that he’s subject to the Behind The Eaters documentary, focusing on two ‘super fans’ (you know, the types that go wild for Justin Bieber and One Direction) and their hilarious amount of Eats memorabilia.
For those familiar with the not-so-serious documentaries broadcast on Channel 4, My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding for one, Behind The Eaters features two questionable characters who count his hair, one Converse and a life-sized Eats cut out.
Dirtybird acquaintances Justin Martin and Catz ‘N Dogz also make a cameo appearance and you can watch it below.
Download Four Tet’s Production for Rome Fortune
Ceaselessly prolific Londoner Four Tet was recently enlisted to produce a track for Atlanta MC Rome Fortune, and the resulting collaboration is now available to stream and download in full. Underneath the laid-back flow of the rising Stateside rapper, Four Tet brings together endless synth pads, light snare rolls, and faint layers of wordless vocal loops on “One Time For,” one of two tracks the pair is said to have worked on together. At this point, it is still unclear when Four Tet’s second production for Rome Fortune may appear, but in the meantime “One Time For” can be streamed and download in full via the player above.
