Richie Hawtin, aka Plastikman, has released the 30th Anniversary Edition of his brilliant debut album Sheet One on double BioVinyl, remastered from the original masters. To mark the anniversary, Sheet One has also been remastered for digital re-release, courtesy of Manmade Mastering from Berlin.

Plastikman is just one of Richie Hawtin’s alter egos, and Sheet One was the first in a series of releases that started a phenomenon with seismic influence – its stark production, quite unlike anything else on the electronic scene at that time, and an instantly recognisable and somewhat controversial acid-blotter CD cover introduced the world to his unique sound. The album was the beginning of a long creative relationship between Richie Hawtin and Mute, and soon took its place as a crucial classic electronic album. With Plastikman, Richie Hawtin defined a time and place, expanding the dimensions of Detroit techno and redefining the possibilities of electronic dance music, evolving over six albums into one of contemporary electronic music’s most distinctive voices: minimalist, psychedelic, groove-laden, and transcendent.

Plastikman states: “After a few years of experimenting with equipment and techniques, I slowly started to find my own unique direction and sound by digging deep into the possibilities of the Roland TB303. The first crucial steps were the F.U.S.E. tracks ‘F.U.’ and ‘Substance Abuse’, both throbbing dancefloor inspired physical work-outs. That led to my idea of taking the sound of my style of Acid deeper into a more cerebral long-form experiment that became the foundation of Sheet One. Recorded mostly over an intense 48 hour period, the album came alive as I paired the Roland TR606 drum machine to the TB303 for my first time, which opened the doorway into this unique Hawtin trip!” — (via PIAS)
