This will be a historic night led by Richie Hawtin and his team from Minus presenting their first Contakt European date at Sónar as part of the label's tenth anniversary. A live show which is unlike anything you have ever seen before. Instead of a DJ session, or a live show, or a series of sessions or shows, Contakt will be a real electronica jam channelled through Richie Hawtin himself, with the simultaneous participation of the Minus artists who have come to Sónar for this occasion - Magda, Troy Pierce, Marc Houle, Gaiser and Heartthrob. Almost six uninterrupted hours of futuristic techno improvisation!
