Whether you know him as PLASTIKMAN, F.U.S.E., Circuit Breaker, or simply, Richie Hawtin -- there is no questioning the influence that this legend has had on the modern electronic dance music scene. With constant innovations in sound and technology, Richie Hawtin's creations achieve exactly what electronic music was intended for: overcoming the limitations of language and space to bring people together from across the globe. This Canadian DJ's groundbreaking, world-renowned performances often incorporate custom-designed visuals, audio controllers and effects to increase the potential of what can be achieved musically and visually through technology. We are excited to offer the opportunity to step behind the booth and into this unique visionary's shoes with the auctioning off of the Richie Hawtin Gear Package. The heavily (but lovingly) used equipment from his 2008 season may help you catch a bit of his genius, but more than anything, it's a chance to own a piece of electronic music history. The package includes: Rimowa Topas Cabin Trolley, (2) Native Instruments Audio 8 DJ interfaces, Native Instruments Maschine, (2) Allen & Heath Xone 1D Controllers, Roland EV-5 Foot Pedal, Midi Solutions Pedal Controller, Allen & Heath Xone DJ Headphones, international power adapters, brand new Ableton Intro software package and Traktor Pro software package.
The infamous PLASTIKMAN returns this year with his first ever Live World Tour,

World AIDS Orphans Day (WAOD) was founded by the Francois-Xavier Bagnound Association (FXB) to bring attention to the millions of children affected by AIDS, and to urge elected officials to state their commitment to the objectives set out in the 2001 United Nations Declaration of Commitments on HIV/AIDS. FXB established a Symbolic Global Safety Net to which more than two million individuals worldwide added their names, each another stitch in the symbolic support for orphans and children made vulnerable by the pandemic. Each year, WAOD has mobilized greater support from around the world.

NextAid's mission is to improve the lives of children and youth in Africa by promoting and implementing sustainable solutions. NextAid raises awareness for, and partners with, community-based projects and grassroots organizations in Africa and believes that an integrated approach is the best formula for establishing real and lasting change. Through music events and public education initiatives, NextAid provides empowering opportunities for concerned individuals to make a difference.

Kawangware Vision Center, Kenya - NextAid has partnered with the inspiring community-based organization to build a "green" workshop and multipurpose facility for their youth programs and micro-business that strive to get youth off the streets by offering economic and performance activities, such as making gift bags to sell to the safari tourism industry. The profits enable the youth to support themselves, as well as, the vulnerable and orphaned children in the community. Learn more about the project at

goGogetters program, South Africa -- goGogetters is a loveLife program empowering South African grandmothers (gogos), who have dedicated their senior years to the wellbeing of orphaned and vulnerable children, as they fight to protect a social fabric left devastated by HIV/AIDS. NextAid is raising funds for the schooling needs of the youth who participate in the program. Learn more the program and the amazing gogos at
