Concept 1 96:12 (New 3LP)
$ 39.99

Label: From Our Minds

For the first time since its original release in 1996, Richie Hawtin’s C ONCEPT 1 series will be available in it’s entirety as a digital release distributed initially only through Bandcamp. The entire series will now be available via‘ Concept 1 1996’ as both individual tracks and a complete package, with the latter unlocking an additional exclusive
bonus track.

Richie Hawtin explains: “ This release marked a real shift in my production style in 1996, and was the start of a significant chapter in my recording career. Everything was handled independently - from design to distribution to a subscription service to accompany it - so releasing this with Bandcamp now really captures that spirit of the landscape back in the mid-nineties. Concept 1 was recorded in isolation at a time when I was not allowed to enter the USA and with everything going on in the world at this moment, it felt like the right time to finally release this project to a larger audience. Without the year of experimentation around the recording process of Concept 1 in 1995, I would never have gotten to the reduction that I was able to achieve later on the recording style of Plastikman ‘Consumed’. In that way this is as an important album for me than any of my Plastikman albums.”
