Richie Hawtin, Loco Dice, and Ean Golden To Embark On CNTRL Tour

At DJTT HQ, we’re constantly asked when controllerism-focused artists will come to your towns across the US and Canada – and we’re excited to share the news that Richie Hawtin, Loco Dice, and Ean Golden have all teamed up to build an incredible joint tour, CNTRL. The tour starts at the end of October, with dates along the US East Coast, Midwest, and Canada (West Coast dates might be coming in 2013!) – details inside!

The CNTRL tour will be focused on showing how advancements in music technology can lead to incredible and dynamic onstage performances and in addition to Richie, Loco, and Ean, a number of guest artists will be popping onto various dates through out the tour, including Carl Craig, Kevin Saunderson Seth Troxler, Victor Calderone, Josh Wink, and Paco Osuna.

The tour combines daytime seminars at major colleges and universities with a performance later that night at a venue near the campus – meaning if you’ve been looking to learn from some of the controller greats, this is your perfect opportunity. Here are the curriculum details from the press release:

  • Richie Hawtin on using technology to control creativity
  • Loco Dice on old-school DJ-ing with modern technology
  • Hawtin’s sound technician Johannes Krämer on the importance of sound quality
  • Ean Golden on digital DJ-ing and controllerism
  • Q&A with CNTRL artists and special guest speakers

I talked to Ean briefly and asked him what he’s pumped for about this tour:

“It’s about exposing the younger generation of EDM fans to the deeper side of electronic music through creative technology. I’m really excited to go out on the road and meet fans and see what people really care about.”
