Richie Hawtin


Mr Sónar

There isn’t an artist that better represents Sónar’s mantra of ‘music, creativity and technology’ than Richie Hawtin. The Detroit techno pioneer has spent a career exploring the possibilities of technology as a DJ, producer and artist. It’s no coincidence that he’s appeared at 22 out of 29 editions of Sónar: his innovative, curious and creative mind has found a home in Barcelona since he first played as a serious, shaven-headed ‘techno boffin’ back in 1997. As Sónar has grown and evolved, so has Richie Hawtin. We can’t wait to see what he has in store for us at his 23rd edition of Sónar.
