Platform, Embrace & Footwork Presents…

Electric Island 2017 – The fully licensed concert and picnic series returns to the park with world class talent. The Canada 150 edition takes place at Hanlan’s Point!



’90年に盟友である JOHN AQUAVIVA と共に自身のレーベル、PLUS 8 RECORDS を設立。STATE OF MIND や CYBERSONIK 名義で音楽活動を本格的に始動。’93年には当時のテクノシーンの起爆剤となるプロジェクト、PLASTIKMAN 名義の “SHEET ONE” を発表し、世界的な社会現象ともいえるほどのセンセーショナルな活動を開始する。その後も FROM WITHIN、CONCEPT などの別名儀で PLUS 8 からリリースを重ね、着実に彼独特のミニマルテクノという世界観を世界全土に浸透させていく。
’98年には、自身のレーベル、MINUS を設立。PLASTIKMAN “CONSUMED” のリリースをはじめ、現在でもシーンの代表的リリースの数々を世に放し続けている。2010年からの1年間は、PLASTIKMAN LIVE としてエレクトロニックミュージックのステージとしては想像を遥かに超えるLEDスクリーンを駆使した革新的なライヴショーを引っさげ世界ツアーを敢行し旋風を巻き起こした。
今年の夏は、スペイン・イビザ島のクラブ SPACE にて、自身初となるレジデンシーパーティー “ENTER.” を12週間に渡り開催し、そのクオリティーの高さにヨーロッパのみならず、世界中の若者たちが ENTER. を体験したいが故にイビザ島を訪れ、この夏のベストパーティーとしてその名を刻んだ。
MINUS の拠点をカナダ・ウィンザーからドイツ・ベルリンに移し10年が経つ今も、SVEN VATH や RICARDO VILLALOBOS などのヨーロッパを代表するアーティストと共に世界のテクノシーンを牽引し、ミニマルテクノのパイオニアとして人間とテクノロジーの調和を音楽で表現し続けている。ヨーロッパ、北米、南米、アジア、オセアニアと全世界を飛び回り、絶大なファン層を持つまさに現代の世界的なトップスターである

Canada’s RICHIE HAWTIN has made his mark on electronic music by being both inventive and innovative. His career takes him all over the world with tour dates in over 25 nations on average each year. Born in Banbury, England, his family moved to Windsor in the late 1970’s. As a teenager Hawtin found inspiration to make music from a combination of techno music from Detroit, his father’s record collection and an obsession with computers, video games and science fiction. As a recording artist, producer, remixer, live performer and DJ, his productions are recorded in Windsor and released on his now legendary Plus 8 & Minus record labels. Today, in between touring the globe he spends time in his studios in Windsor, Canada and Berlin, Germany. With over fifteen years of DJ experience, Hawtin has headlined some of the most prestigious festivals and events in club culture to date and continues to define rather than follow musical trends. Internationally in demand, from Seoul to Sydney, San Francisco to Sao Paulo or Dublin to Istanbul, Hawtin’s developed sound of entertaining and interesting DJ art continues to push dance music into the future. His DJ reputation has earned him many Best International DJ awards with fans and the music industry. On record it was Hawtin’s recording moniker of PLASTIKMAN that put him in the limelight, with a mix of techno and ambient sounds. His dedication to his craft has also received notoriety, performing live with the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra, creating sound installations for the French Ministry of Culture’s Millennium Celebration and composing music for the Torino 2006 XXth Olympic Winter Games opening ceremonies. Not content with technology of today, Hawtin has had a unique vision in developing creative options for musicians to create and perform electronic music with, most notably with early involvement in the Final Scratch DJ system and his own modifications to DJ equipment. His attention to detail and desire to push the envelope both in the studio and on the stage continues to be his beacon of determination in addition to being Canada’s electronic music ambassador.

熱波とElectric Islandの影響は世界の気候を変えるらしい。
照りつける日差し、肌に刺さる紫外線、晴天の中続々と集まってくる人。今宵のElectric Islandも盛り上がること請け合いである。

Following a successful season opener of Electric Island this past Victoria Day holiday, Toronto’s concert + picnic series is already gearing up for one of the most special celebrations of them all – Canada Day! On Saturday, July 1st our beautiful country will turn a triumphant 150 years young, while Electric Island also celebrates its 5th Canada Day anniversary celebration. Today more than ever before, we feel grateful to be part of a community unified by music.

To help celebrate the many milestones, Electric Island has called upon Canada’s electronic music pioneer, Richie Hawtin who will make his long-awaited EI debut. Joining Richie at the main stage will be fellow electronic music superstar, Maceo Plex! And yet, the star-studded line-up doesn’t end there. We warmly welcome back Berlin-based techno producer Recondite, whose Electric Island set of 2015 remains a hot topic, along with Germany’s chameleon of sound and founders of the Ongaku/Klang/Playhouse labels Roman Flügel. The second stage will offer patrons a more laid-back and intimate vibe with the deep, emotive melodies of Atish and Israeli musician Chaim both manning the decks. Last, but certainly not least, Toronto will get their familiar dosage of homegrown talent from local acts Aleksandar Kojic, Borzoo, Chris Larsen, Nadia and Talal & Zoi. Toronto music lovers, this is a celebration that will go down in the books! Come celebrate #150 with music, friends, nature and a historical display of fireworks!
