Richie Hawtin Gives Away New Mix

During last month's Sónar Festival (a weekend from which we picked out a comprehensive list of winners and losers), techno mainstay Richie Hawtin was at one point enlisted to take charge of the DJ booth during a rooftop party at Barcelona's Hotel Diagonal. Now, Hawtin has pieced together a truncated version of that set for the latest volume of his free mix series, Fragments. Intended as a way to "capture the feeling and direction of the night, giving those who were there a reminder of the events they experienced while giving those who were not present a fragmented distortion of what they missed," the new mix is an "edited and reconstructed" version of Hawtin's performance from that night. It allows us all a glimpse into Hawtin's abilities as a mixmaster without occupying too much harddrive space. The complete eighth "episode" of Hawtin's ongoing Fragments mix series can be streamed and downloaded below.
