Richie Hawtin has announced plans to bring his award-winning CLOSE shows to the UK later this year.
Set to play two nights in October – at Glasgow’s O2 Academy and London’s Roundhouse – the shows will see the electronic DJ’s Spontaneity & Synchronicity concept be supported by Swedish electronic act TM404 aka Andreas Tilliander, a regular guest at Hawtin’s ENTER residency in Ibiza.
“I have spent most of my life behind a table half-concealed” says Hawtin of the new dates, adding “The CLOSE show removes the barrier between artist and audience and it feels like I’m in that moment with everybody else. It feels very powerful. If I can get to that point during the show with everybody, that’s why I got into this music. Being locked in this cloud of frequencies that feels like its from tomorrow; that you’re living in the future. I am really happy to finally perform this show at the Roundhouse in London, and the Scottish crowds have always been a huge inspiration to me.”
