Last spring the artists Holly Herndon and Mat Dryhurst initiated a podcast series in which they interview key figures of 21st century culture. This time, their interviewee is the musician, DJ and entrepreneur Richie Hawtin. In this discussion, they touch on issues related to the 21st century club economy, and discuss the necessity of bold infrastructural interventions to address issues of inequity between DJs and producers, Europeans and Americans, and contemporary club artists and the originators of club culture.
