Info:
Long before Richie Hawtin became what he is today—superstar DJ, mastermind of the Minus label, entrepreneur, technological innovator, style icon—he was best known for a single project: Plastikman.

Between 1993 and 2003, Plastikman created an astonishing body of work, one that didn’t so much define a time and place as explode them, expanding the dimensions of Detroit techno and redefining the possibilities of electronic dance music itself.

Across six albums (Sheet One, Musik, Recycled Plastik, Consumed, Artifakts (B.C.), and Closer) and numerous singles like “Spastik,” “Plastique,” and “Sickness” Plastikman evolved into one of contemporary electronic music’s most distinctive voices: minimalist, psychedelic, groovy as anything, ever mindful of the transcendent properties of pure electronic sound.

Artifakts (B.C.) is his fourth album, a compilation of material left from Musik’s recording as well as an unfinished album called Klinik. According to Richie Hawtin, Artifakts [bc] should be viewed as the third Plastikman album instead of the fourth. After Musik he began to devise concepts for an album that would ultimately be called Klinik. When Richie Hawtin was exiled from the U.S. for performing illegally, he scrapped the idea, and by the time he returned, he began working on the much more ambitious Consumed. As such, Artifakts [bc] was devised as a way to bridge the periods between Musik and Consumed. [bc] is an acronym for [b]efore [c]onsumed.

The album is now re-issued by Mute with remastered audio.
Multi-awarded Plastikman was selected by Mixmag as the Greatest Dance Act of All time in 2012 and Greatest DJ of All Time in 2011.
