In October, speculation was rife over two anonymous Plus 8 releases that surfaced on the website of Berlin record store Hard Wax.
The releases were initially credited to an “unknown artist” but in a new documentary Richie Hawtin has unveiled himself as the mystery producer behind ’25/2’ and ’25/1’.
Hard Wax have since added credits for the producer’s three aliases, Plastikman, Childsplay and Robotman, to their online listings.
Hawtin talks about the releases in an interview with EB.TV which you can watch below.

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.
Probably the most innovative Boiler-Room-inspired channel to date, '90s Boiler Room is the latest internet phenomenon to poke fun at the DJ set streaming service.
