Plastikman - Closer

posted on August 27, 2003

Richie Hawtin’s first album in five years under the revered Plastikman alias marks another unpredictable artistic leap and an unprecedented move towards the personal for one of second-wave techno’s most celebrated auteurs. The music – remote, hallucinatory and disorientingly Cubist, although not without the occasional, inviting wiggle – is as enigmatic as anything in Hawtin’s eclectic canon, continuing the uneasy voyage into the outer limits of mutant acid house Plastikman first began a decade ago with the seminal Sheet One. But it’s also the most accurate channeling of the sounds rattling around inside his head Hawtin has achieved to date.
