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.

Sheet One was the first Plastikman album, written by Richie Hawtin and released in October 1993 on Novamute Records. The album focuses on laser-precise minimalist rhythms to drive a series of echo-box acid lines that gradually acquire power over the course of lengthy album tracks. Coming out of the minimal techno scene in Detroit, this album makes frequent use of the Roland TB-303, which gained prominence in the electronic music world as a staple of Chicago’s acid house scene.

The front inlay of the album is perforated, giving it the look of a wall of LSD tabs. The cover was so realistic that a man in Texas was arrested when a police officer saw the CD on his car seat after pulling him over on a traffic violation.

The album is now re-issued by Mute with the original artwork and 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.
