Minus to Release Contakt DVD
- Words: Thomas Rees
In 2008, Richie Hawtin's Minus label celebrated its 10th anniversary with a free-flowing, improvisatory audiovisual extravaganza known as Contakt, touring cities as disparate as Detroit, Tokyo, Amsterdam, and London. Now, those who weren't lucky enough to witness the show can go behind the scenes with a new documentary that details the joys and frustrations of coordinating and producing such a large-scale event. Featuring sets from Hawtin, Magda, Gaiser, and other labelmates, the Contakt DVD is an investigation of techno and events production from the inside out.
Contakt will be released this autumn.
