Plastikman - Ex Live (album stream)

new plastikman album in a decade, just before his exclusive appearance at sonar'14 in barcelona. it's a live recording from the the fundraiser event of new york's prestigious guggenheim museum to the invitation of dior's artistic director, raf simons. however the plastikman 1.5 show would have been more than welcomed, richie hawtin locked himself in to record quickly and effortessly a fresh material as his interpretation of art, architecture, painting and sculpture, all inspired by the guggenheim museum. well, the outcome is different from my two favorites, musik and consumed. i still don't entirely get those bright and bold trancey pads compared to the old dark, gritty and tricky textures, but hey.. it was made with an upper-class fundraiser fashion show in mind. 

digital out now, physical to follow with a subpac deal in a month's time. you can also read some thoughts of mr. hawtin in a fresh interview by djtechtools.
