British-Canadian electronic musician and DJ Richie Hawtin produced the soundtrack for Prada’s digital collection. The unmatchable production skills of Richie Hawtin made the fashion brand partner up with him in order to create the music for a few fashion shows.
Acid and minimal techno producer Richie Hawtin found wonderful scenery for his music under the Plastikman alias. Fashion shows are a perfect match for these acid techno beats. And the artist shared a few productions for this kind of event. Moreover, the techno talent started collaborating with Prada last year.
Although Plastikman was a discontinued project for Richie Hawtin for a long time, since the pandemic, this alias is getting back to life. In 2014, Richie released his first Plastikman album, EX. Besides, he released his first EP in 1999 titled Time Warps. With the covid situation, lockdown gave him plenty of time to channel his production efforts into a solo techno compilation.
“The journey has been unlike anything I’ve ever done before, collaborating with Prada designers Miuccia Prada & Raf Simons to articulate their aesthetic vision with a sonic accompaniment in pure Plastikman style, hypnotic, sensual, and cerebral!”
Besides the veteran artist, thank Mrs. Prada & Raf Simons for their trust and for a truly inspirational experience. Richie Hawtin is definitely a legendary producer, and his skills let him create music for such different sceneries, like this collaboration with Prada. Despite loving these new productions by Plastikman, we hope that we can enjoy Hawtin’s beats very soon. In the meantime, if you want to check Richie Hawtin x Prada, make sure to visit this link.
