From the BBc Radio 1 website - Heidi is ideally placed to tell the story of Richie as they both grew up in Windsor, Ontario, across the river from the birthplace of techno, Detroit.

Just before the start of a hectic Ibiza season, Heidi caught up with Richie at his flat in Berlin to talk in detail about his life to date. Hear her discover more about his early success as Plastikman, his label Plus 8 and his legendary warehouse parties in Detroit. They then move on to talk about his move first to New York and then on to Berlin. And the founding of M_nus, a record label and family of artists that went on to define the sound of minimal techno.

Aside from the music, Rich and Heidi discuss his technical innovation and the live shows with M_nus and Plastikman that have helped define DJ culture itself.

Also featuring Seth Troxler and Ryan Crosson from Visionquest, Detroit legends Juan Atkins, Carl Craig and Jeff Mills, Richie's brother Matthew and dad Mick, former M_nus members Magda, Marc Houle and Troy Pierce and long term friends Josh Wink and Loco Dice.
