Hawtin, Ritchie : Orange

'[a]Orange[/a]' involves plenty of construction and reduction and goes on for several weeks. But rest assured, you won't forget a second of it.

"Orange is derived from Yello," notes some tiny white print at the bottom of this unquestionably orange record sleeve, and sure enough, techno genius Richie Hawtin (ak-bleedin'-a Plastikman as everyone ought to know by now) has indeed crafted a quite brilliant record entirely from loops derived from Swiss oddballs Yello's mid-'80s masterstroke 'The Race'. Like all great techno, 'Orange' involves plenty of construction and reduction and goes on for several weeks. But rest assured, you won't forget a second of it.
