Plastikman – “EXhale (Sonar Live Mix)”

Renaissance man and legendary techno producer Richie Hawtin‘s Plastikman alter ego has been a project of late obsessed with the notion of defining the future through limits and barriers (or a lack thereof). An album echoing this notion, EXhis seventh Plastikman album—was released in June. Today a live, 2013 recording of album track “EXhale”—live from Barcelona’s Sónar Festival—was made available via Soundcloud (with video footage of said performance available via Youtube as well). After not releasing a live album for over a decade, Hawtin’s reticence in using the Plastikman moniker has been replaced by a full scale and high concept release bearing this simmering, expansive, deep and intense single.
