At last years Friday night Sonar showcase however, Richie was back to his brilliant best. I put all thoughts of Contakt, Cubes, Clothing Lines and any other hype that was surrounding him at the time, to the back of my mind and, as cliche as it sounds 'just concentrated on the music'. Hawtin put in a tremendous performance that night and convinced me that when it is all the techno, there's few better.
I have a feeling this night is going to be just like that memorable night back in Barcelona, in a considerably smaller space, but all about the Techno. No frills, no spills (although maybe a few Canadian flags), the London crowd cruisers will be kept away by the annoyance of Friday work (don't worry i have the day off) and Richie will serve up his finest to mark the occasion.
Tickets are still available at:
I have mine. And for those of you that might be around the west end in the afternoon of Canada Day, Hawtin will be playing a half hour set at 5:30pm in Traflagar Square as part of the festivities
