Hawtin and friends will offer lectures and gigs at colleges across North America next month.
Hawtin launched his first CNTRL tour in 2012, offering technology workshops, lectures and master classes to students across North America, with a number of high-profile special guests in tow. "I hope that people walk away from the CNTRL tour with a deeper understanding and appreciation for the individual creativity that each artist and performer puts into their shows," Hawtin says. "We hope that some of the participants and fans will be inspired to take their next steps at trying their hands at their own creativity."
The tour will return next month with a rotating cast of guests which includes Blue Hawaii, Chris Liebing, Dantiez Saunderson, Dubfire, Ean Golden of DJ Tech Tools, François Kevorkian, Grimes, Marc Houle (live), Matador, Mateo Murphy, Matrixxman, Matthew Dear and Victor Calderone. Daytime programming, which featured discounted technology marketplaces sponsored by Guitar Center in the US and Moog Audio in Canada, will be paired with nighttime gigs at nearby venues.
Hawtin and company will kick off at Berklee College Of Music in Boston on April 15th, followed by a party at Middle East Downstairs in Cambridge that same night. The tour will then hit Philadelphia, New York, Montreal, Toronto, Seattle and San Francisco, before wrapping up in Los Angeles on April 25th. For full details check out the event listings below.
