Free Download: Plastikman – EXhale (Sonar Live Mix)

Plastikman SONAR

Richie Hawtin will go down as one of the most influential visionaries of our generation. While there are many prolific artists that helped establish the scene, Richie Hawtin has played a major role in shaping the cultural and musical landscape that we live and breathe every day. From showcases at the Guggenheim to marathon sets world-wide, nothing is off limits for Mr. Hawtin.

His most recent endeavor manifests in the form of the CNTRL Tour in which he and fellow esteemed artists travel through the United States visiting college campuses spreading the good word about technology and techno culture. Tomorrow night marks the grand finale of the CNTRL 2015 Tour, and to honor this day we’re sharing the free download of his Plastikman EXhale recording live from Sonar 2014. EXhale is a truly minimal gem encompassing abstract sounds and textures, coming together to form one cohesive piece of electronic music.

The official CNTRL Closing Party will be taking place at the Hollywood Palladium with special guests Chris Liebing, Victor Calderone, Ean Golden, and Lee K. After a long tour across the United States we expect this one to end in grand fashion.

When Richie Hawtin initiated the CNTRL Tour back in 2012 the goal was to go beyond EDM by educating the upcoming generation about electronic music and the rich history behind in. They accomplished this through a series of keynote lectures and workshops at university campuses across the country, with an event that same evening. It’s an all-inclusive package for those eager to learn more about this wonderful culture.
