Richie Hawtin makes a fresh return as Plastikman in XLR8R‘s second annual music technology issue. It’s not all about techno, though, as shown in features about Lyrics Born, Theo Parrish, Five Deez, Wiley Kat, Jonny L and Future Folk. An extended music technology section showcases tech industry pioneers as well as pages of hardware, synths, software and sampler reviews. Other features include Barcelona Graffiti, a traveling music and art show, and Jimmy Edgar.
