Historically looking, "Recycled Plastik" is quite probably Richie Hawtin's most important release under the Plastikman name. That is mainly due to the inclusion of the acid head nodder Krakpot, and the two tight minimal numbers Elektrostatik and Spastik, neither of which should need an introduction. The rest I already forgot about, but these three make this mini album an obligatory buy.
Simple strucutre, plain textures and impressive percussion work coupled with an undeniable drive, monotonous patterns and subtracted layers are the key terms to describe these stripped down, yet highly enjoyable tracks. Fun stuff, and it used to be hella popular as well!

This classic techno mini-album contains the famous <i>Spastik</i>, which is a fairly simplistic track consisting basically of stuttering snare roles over a kick drum. An instant classic when it was released in 1993, this record, probably more than any other, cemented Hawtin's position as a techno innovator.

Essentially a 303 + 808 (909?) piece. The Gak remix gets moving pretty well. The rest sounds like "my first rebirth tracks" imo. Perhaps good material for a DJ to mix into a acid / detroit-ish set.
