richie has to cancel a date cause his harddrive is broken..

Richie Hawtin (official page)

Unfortunately the technology that is the foundation of my career is not playing friendly today!
So due to corrupt hard drive #1 and broken pins on hard drive #2 I'm not able to perform tonight at Coachella.
Apologies and see you all next week!

anyway, as a promoter i'd be kinda pissed if i booked him for a fortune and than he cancels because his harddrive is defective ..

a tired, tired heart, such shakey lips

He should be prepared for these things... if a person is mobile and their career depends on technology then they should have a plan of action. I would have a server set up that I could access from anywhere in the world. On it I would keep a drive image of my OS with hardware drivers and DJing software already installed, mapped and good to go. I would also have access to my music. It would be as simple as starting the image download on some random computer while going to the store to get a new drive, get back, copying the image to the drive, and then downloading the music to the directory. I would also have some kind of automated system of updates for the configuration files for the software and any analysis that may have been performed on the tracks.

a few years ago he posted a picture of a guy carrying a bag of vinyl records with the quote
"is this how a modern dj should look like?" (or something like this).

Maybe you didn't notice that he has 2 drives with him, both of them fucked...
And you want him to go out, maybe late in the night and buy a new harddrive in 7/11?
What should it help to have a server set up somewhere with his OS images etc, if he got no harddrive in his machine?

That is a situation no one would like to have. In case of computers and any equipment in general, it is always good to have some kind of plan B.

Some years ago he traveled with two laptops.
