Canadian DJ and Producer Richie Hawtin has had many successes throughout his long career. He continues to be one of the leaders of the popular minimal techno movement. His latest foray into the nuts and bolts of DJing mixes improv, DJ technology, and visuals. Hawtin wants to bring the art of DJing as close to the crowd as possible to show them how DJs actually work their magic.

His latest tour is called CLOSE and, because each performance is completely improvised, no two shows are the same. In the video below, Hawtin explains his concept. Check here for a list of show dates.
