Richie Hawtin Shows Us How He Gets Down Poolside


To all you people out there who think Summer is over: fuck you. To all those breweries out there that have stopped pushing Summer beers and are now onto Fall/Oktoberfest/Pumpkin beers: shame on you. Here’s a newsflash – we still have a month of Summer left and I’m going to make sure I enjoy it to its highest potential. And to all you readers out there, I’m going to help share the wealth. Enter Richie Hawtin and his 1 hour 45 minute poolside set from the Ibiza Villa, recorded for Boiler Room on August 3rd. For those who don’t know Richie Hawtin, you’re in for a treat. The 43-year-old British producer/DJ helped fuel the Detroit Techno movement back in the 90s and spins sets infused with Minimal Techno, Techno, Detroit Techno, and various forms of House music. Many consider Hawtin to be of legendary status and one of the best DJs in the world – but of course it really depends on your taste. This set just screams Summer – it’s funky and groovy and the beat never stops. My mood immediately picked up when I started pumping this mix through my headphones and I know those looking for something to drive them through the week will enjoy it. Not to  mention it’ll be a great mix to throw on this weekend. If Richie Hawtin wasn’t on your radar before, there is no shortage of material from him out there so get to work getting caught up.
