We knew a new Richie Hawtin album was coming after he admitted to producing some unidentified white labels on Plus 8, but we didn't expect it to arrive so soon.
The techno producer's made his Christmas delivery early this year with a 15-track LP featuring productions under his own name and aliases Plastikman, Robotman, Childsplay, F.U.S.E, 80xx, Circuit Breaker and R.H.X.
'Expanded', 'Expansion' and 'Creatur' were just some of the tracks being sold at German record store Hard Wax and they all appear on 'From My Mind To Yours', with Hawtin saying Plus 8's 25th anniversary inspired the release.
"This year is the 25th anniversary of Plus 8 Records, the label that John Acquaviva and I started at the beginning of our technology-fuelled journey into music. We thought of celebrating in many ways - an anniversary world tour or releasing a best of compilation.
"However, in keeping with the original vision of Plus 8, we decided to celebrate the occasion by revisiting the very reason we started the label in the first place: releasing new forward-thinking music."
He also went on to say the tracks were made with his "original studio friends" which were "combined with the latest recording technologies".
