'ups his game' - dude, Richie is pretty much at the top of his game, the thing is his game isn't really to everyone's taste. He pretty much wrote the book on 'making whole DJ sets out of using 4-beat loops' - his style is totally based on stripping a track down to a kick drum and very little else, then making his own builds and drops using FX. His music is either a tour de force of minimal simplicity or a complete snoozefest, usually depending on the quality of the 'rugs in circulation.
No two sets of his are the same, but they are certainly very similar to each other; the only time you will ever be disappointed if you go see Hawtin play is if you are expecting him to play anything radically different sounding or with actual melodies as well as just kick drums, big reverb on percussion and simple basslines.
