There's no doubt that Richie Hawtin's return as Plastikman has been quite a buzzworthy topic over the last several months. Instant criticism from longtime fans and music enthusiasts emerged, and rightfully so, considering Richie's most recent set behavior over the last several years. A man who once led the mindfuck techno brigade of the early 90s was now turning towards more conventional and popular sounds. The Mutek set was a disappointment for many, letting their frustrations be known. Would Richie Hawtin ever return to his glory as Plastikman, or would this just be something that only history can claim as legendary?
The audio download of this set is an audience recording. The quality is poor at best, and is meant to only serve as a way to listen to what sort of sounds were being played. The videos serve the same purpose.
