Plastikman – Ex

For many, “minimal” is synonymous with “empty,” and Plastikman’s EX meets that expectation. The seven-track offering, sometime techno staple Richie Hawtin’s first Plastikman release in over a decade, was compiled for 2013’s Guggenheim International Gala, and it builds from a somber, myopic march into a soul-cleansing cataclysm of analog emotion. Still maintaining appearances and residencies in posh clubs across the globe, this is Hawtin’s stand as an aural artiste — teasing the exhibit with escalating synths that disappear into black holes and percussive melodies with no option but to collide.
