It’s been over 10 years since Richie Hawtin has released anything under his insanely famous moniker Plastikman — notwithstanding the awesome Arkives boxed set —, and we just learned that he will be releasing a new album entitled EX on June 10th in digital, CD and vinyl format. A special Subpac edition will be available on June 14th.
SubPac? According to the Mute Records Website, here’s what that’s all about:
“Plastikman has teamed up with SubPac to create a Limited Edition Premium Bundle. The album will be presented on vinyl, with a signed certificate of authenticity and a custom Plastikman edition of the SubPac S1. SubPac is a unique portable bass system that allows an immersive music experience. When you’re using the SubPac, the powerful bass and sub-bass frequencies – the sensations you usually only get in a club situation – are reproduced meaning you can actually FEEL the music.”
EX was recorded live at the Guggenheim Museum at the invitation of Raf Simons and as part of the museum’s annual fundraiser.
June 10th, folks! That’s just a few little days away!
