Hopefully it's good, although Hawtin has managed to disappear up his own arse worse than the most excessive 70's prog nightmares.

To quote weird science "anyone with hair like that is an asshole".
Loved Minus Orange and some of his 90s sets when I saw him, but he takes himself really seriously, doesn't he?

Having met similar people, I assume he's a huge coke fiend. And why not? He's earned the right to an extent. Shame though, Minus_Orange and the first DE9 is blinding.

I recall an interview which reckoned he never took drugs - just drinks tea whilst making his weird stuff.
Personally I liked his Minus stuff too but he's mostly the wrong kind of minimal analog for me. Most of his stuff just isn't that interesting which is a shame as he more an ideas man...hopefully that will change.

The name Plastikman came from him being on lsd. The documentary slices magazine put out about him (which was really good) goes into a lot of his early stuff, drugs were a big part of it!

Oh. Lovely. Someones uploaded it.
This is from "Detroit - the third wave (remixed and re-released by Population one in 2012)"
Amazing. The track says it all....Midnight Hours. A superb way to use a kick.....in a very drifty and mellow piece. Its either live played or an analog sequencer too (or he messed up the programming and kept the mistake).

No idea how I only just discovered that Blawan and Surgeon released a collaboration EP last year:
Big EBM vibe from this.

Those are more Gabba than techno, or eurotechno (!) as we were calling it back then.

Dman. Mat Cogger AKA Neuropolitque has died of Cancer.
He did some great stuff on Irdial after travelling over to Detroit and knocking on Derrick May's Door.
He had a weird style - a very cold but emotive "London sound" with some great 909 production.
Mind u don't trip.
Bananagate (from the Seminal Virtual Sex LP)
And a real classic with then Kenny Larkin/POD inspired Artemis (a version also appeared on Kirk Degeogio's A.R.T. label compilation i have here)
