Plus 8 have released a new 12” from an anonymous artist.
The label, founded by Richie Hawtin and John Acquaviva, have been tight-lipped about the identity of the record’s producer. According to RA, Hawtin’s management “weren’t aware of the release” despite the record bearing some similarity to his work as Plastikman.
The mysterious 12”, titled ‘Plus 8 25/1’, is the first vinyl release to come out on the label since 2012. Last year, Plus 8 issued a digital single by testpilot (which was later revealed to be an alias of deadmau5).
‘Plus 8 25/1’ is out now. Listen to a sample of the tracks on Hard Wax.
