Richie Hawtin's Plus8 label returns... with a Deadmau5 record

Plus 8, the label founded by Richie Hawtin and John Acquaviva and home to records like Plastikman’s ‘Spastik’, has returned with its first release for a year and a half.

The producer behind it? EDM helmet-in-a-helmet Deadmau5.

Granted, we should have all seen this coming – Hawtin and Deadmau5 have been chumming it up since last year’s SXSW – but still, Deadmau5 on Plus 8? The record is titled ‘Sunspot (White Space Conflict)’, and was recorded under Deadmau5’s testpilot pseudonym. You can stream it here.

We just wonder what John Calvert thinks.
