He is best known for his work under the alias Plastikman and for his ENTER. events in Ibiza and around the world.
Hawtin is known for DJing techno sets making use of laptop computers and digital mixing equipment. In May 1990 Hawtin and fellow second-waver John Acquaviva founded the Plus 8 record label, which they named after their turntable’s pitch adjust function. In 1998, Hawtin launched M_nus Records.

ENTER. consists of five specially designed rooms and a wide array of electronic music.

In November 2013, Hawtin performed as Plastikman at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City. This performance inspired him to finish a new Plastikman LP. “It put me back in the studio and inspired me enough to work on new material, and in five days I created a new album,” he said. The album will be released in 2014. The same year he also worked with his brother Matthew on concept pieces entitled Contained at the Art Basel showcase in Miami.
Nightlife in its purest form is rebellion… a rebellion against the social status quo through an unbridled celebration of sight, sound, scene and form. It’s that very philosophy that is at the core of what LiFE represents. It’s not about creating another Vegas nightclub; it’s about fostering a movement that rebels against the one-dimensional norm that has come to define nightlife. For far too long, the party has been about just the entertainment and LiFE defies that convention, knowing the real essence of the party is its people.
