Thanks to our colleagues at Slices we have been enjoying this vintage Richie Hawtin mix from 1989 this morning. Recorded live on the Detroit radio station Power 96 the mix is decidely old skool by today’s standards but was (obvioulsy) absoutley cutting edge at the time. Tracks from LFO and Bomb The Bass fit next to long forgotten acid jams and some pretty fierce mixing from the man Hawtin. Hawtin’s recent comments about vinyl and DJ technologies have generated some, erm pretty lively debate amongst people on the internet, but with chops like he shows on this 23 year old mix, well, we think he can say and do what he likes. Ri, Ri, Ri, Richie!
