Plastikman – Ex (2015)

56684

In the summer of 2014, Richie Hawtin readopted his Plastikman alias for EX. The LP was his first since 2003 and it further showcased Hawtin’s commitment to not becoming a heritage dance music veteran wheeled out to the highest bidder. The record explored space, synergy and – of course – minimalism. Mute have now left 4 of the album’s tracks in the hands of fellow dance heavyweights for club mixes. Dixon’s remix of Exhale is exactly the meeting of the minds one might dream of from this combination. Tale Of Us also add pathos and grandeur to Expand without compromising any of Hawtin’s stark minimalism. Whilst they were originally built with specific spaces in mind, this release widens the possibilities for the spellbinding chapters of EX.

After a memorable collaboration with Daft Punk on 2013’s Random Access Memories, electronic music legend Giorgio Moroder is back, releasing his first album of solo material in over 30 years. Announced today, the album is set to drop in spring 2015 on Sony/RCA and features a new batch of notable collaborators including Britney Spears, Sia, Kylie Minogue, Charli XCX, and more. Alongside the album announcement comes a new video for the track “74 is the New 24,” premiering exclusively on The Creators Project. The video, directed by Jai Lewis with help from Andromeda Software Development, is a striking digital landscape of beautiful, strange images that demand rewatching. “We wanted to achieve that Giorgio Moroder ‘retro-future’ feel,” explains Lewis, who is also collaborating with Moroder on a 2015 DJ tour. Lewis continues: “His attention to detail is especially sharp and the sheer amount of time dedicated to this production will surely reflect this. I don’t know how this man has the energy to tour, work on an new album, be a family man, and last of all, musical pioneer.” The Creators Project spoke to the man himself, Giorgio Moroder, about his career, creative process, and influence on modern music.
