Stream Richie Hawtin's New LP as Plastikman in Full

Last week, techno stalwart Richie Hawtin revealed plans to revive his legendary Plastikman moniker on a new LP, EX, a record which can now be streamed in full. Recorded last year during a performance at New York's Guggenheim museum, EX is a fifty-plus-minute excursion into dark synths and crystal-clear electronics. With the museum space said to have allowed Hawtin to take his focus off the dancefloor, the album finds the techno veteran in a very adventurous mood, still landing on moments of driving force but also willing to venture into the more abstract ends of live electronic manipulation.

Out in digital form today via Mute and with a limited-edition physical bundle out on July 15, Plastikman's EX album can be streamed in full using the player below.
