Richie Hawtin is collaborating on a new piece of musical hardware together with Allen & Heath.
Hawtin announced the collaboration at a press conference during trade show NAMM. The as-yet-unnamed instrument took two-years to design and will be part of a wider brand called Play Differently.
"The ethos of Play Differently is to create products that will magnify the individuality and expand the creativity of today's generation of electronic music artists, producers and DJs . We hope to encourage and inspire creatives to PLAY differently,” Hawtin said.

In October, speculation was rife over two anonymous Plus 8 releases that surfaced on the website of Berlin record store Hard Wax.

Hard Wax have since added credits for the producer’s three aliases, Plastikman, Childsplay and Robotman, to their online listings.

Manchester’s Parklife festival exists in an alternative dimension where EDM doesn’t exist. You won’t find any cake throwing DJs or the latest celebrity selectors throwing down beats in any of its arenas. What it does offer though, is a festival full to the brim with the latest cutting-edge DJs, producers and bands, which have made it there on merit, and merit alone. Meticulously programmed from start to finish, the festival offers something a bit different — something with a little bit more substance.
