Wired: Techno DJ Is Hot, Hot, Hawtin

Wired News had a chance to interview globe-trotting techno DJ, Richie Hawtin on “technology, techno music and how a consummate wired musician finds new music.”

WN: What about the iPod? How did your set for Apple in New York go?

Hawtin: Considering there is no DJ implementation in the iPod software, it went surprisingly well. And my reasons for being part of the whole thing, the whole promotion, was trying to raise my hand in a pack of DJs and say, “Hey Apple, this is a really cool product, but … what would be great would be to have some simple pitch-shifting capabilities.” Just to be able to change the speed of the tracks, and I can see it being an amazing DJ performance device.”
