Richie Hawtin came up in the Detroit techno scene during the '90s and built his reputation on minimalist dance music. It's not for everyone, but those who follow any of Hawtin's numerous aliases do so with impassioned vigilance. Hawtin is a regular winner of international DJing awards and has a devout following in Europe.

Here, Hawtin performs live as part of Moogfest 2012 in Asheville, N.C., on Oct. 26.
