Richie Hawtin’s alter-ego Plastikman releases EX Club Mixes, four new takes on EX, his made-for-the-museum album from 2014.
Hawtin recorded the album live during a gala at the Guggenheim Museum in New York November 2013, and now we have new takes from a wealth of talented contemporaries in Dixon (pictured), Recondite, Tale Of Us, and Dubfire.
Resident Advisor’s #1 DJ, Dixon, offers his Just A Different Mixdown version of EXhale and sets the tone with a reminder of the brooding, contemplative original works by Hawtin.
Germany’s Recondite follows up with a tech house take on EXplore with a touch of funk. Berlin-based duo Tale Of Us turns in a delicate, spaced-out rework of EXpand, and the legendary Dubfire’s techy EXposed remix finishes strong with driving, blippy goodness.
