Richie Hawtin and Loco Dice Announce College Tour

Music

By: / September 27, 2012

Kingpins of electronic dance music’s underground Richie Hawtin and Loco Dice have announced a nationwide tour. Although the American dance population has clearly shown their devout interest in this new dominant music trend, the awareness of those who truly helped shape and build what they enjoy today is lacking. In an effort to help educate those who yearn to learn more about dance music, in specific techno and contemporary DJ technology, the producers are hitting up North America to play professors in the hottests course known to college, EDM 101.

Dubbed ‘Control: Beyond EDM’, this multi-city tour is not the usual mega show escapade. Stopping in cities such as NYC, Boston, Philadelphia and Montreal, each installment will feature a daytime event consisting of lectures from an array of industry leaders, followed by a nighttime party headlined by Hawtin, Dice and myriad special guests. With the target goal being to offer insight into parts of EDM that normally wouldn’t be given the spotlight, both Richie and Dice have big plans for their diehard fans and their musical awareness.
