What did you get up to for New Year?

Big night out? Intimate gathering? Jools Holland and a bag of cheese savouries? Or did you take a private jet to four cities in three countries over two nights to foist some banging techno on thousands of saucer-eyed loons?

Welcome to the life of Richie Hawtin, who’s just posted up a short documentary allowing us a glimpse behind the scenes of his New Year tour as he journeyed from Wuppertal in Germany to Milan, Madrid and finally Barcelona.

Highlights include 4:33am at “the wrong airport” with Hawtin’s entourage throwing streamers around the cabin. Watch it above, via RA.

In other Hawtin news, the techno veteran recently revealed that his next album as Plastikman is finished.
