Electronic dance star Plastikman has unveiled plans to release his first album in 11 years. The Canadian musician, real name Richie Hawtin, recorded EX in November (13) at New York's Guggenheim Museum during its annual fundraising event and he is now set to release the new material online next week (10Jun14).
He says, "I locked myself away in a series of intense studio sessions and quickly recorded enough new material for the performance and realised I might also have enough for a complete new album.
"The music came out of me effortlessly as I was very inspired by the opportunity to play in this beautiful architectural space renowned more for art than music."
Hawtin released his last work as Plastikman in 2003 with the album Closer.
