Richie Hawtin 'Concept 1 96 : 12' 3xLP
Originally released in 1996. Release on From Our Minds including Bonus Track.
”This release marked a real shift in my production style in 1996, and was the start of a significant chapter in my recording career. Everything was handled independently from design to distribution to a subscription service to accompany it. Concept 1 was recorded in isolation at a time when I was not allowed to enter the USA and with everything going on in the world at this moment, it felt like the right time to finally release this project to a larger audience.
Without the year of experimentation around the recording process of Concept 1 in 1995, I would never have gotten to the reduction that I was able to achieve later on the recording style of Plastikman ’Consumed’. In that way this is as an important album for me than any of my Plastikman albums.“
