Review: Never let it be said that Robert Hood is letting his listeners languish in a sonic comfort zone. The veteran producer's latest EP under his own name starts with a jolt, as the title track deploys pounding, industrial drums and a chain metal rhythm. "Pathetic" is just as intense. Based on a relentless groove, it sees Hood deploy a spiralling chord sequence that filters its way to a spine-tingling finale. "Outsider" is based on a similar premise, but this time hollowed out drums support a niggling build. This release effortlessly shatters the assumption that Hood would continue to focus on the less abrasive, house-influenced Floorplan project.

Review: Sometimes two heads really are better than one! Not so long ago, a French TV show invited Detroit house and techno don Robert Hood and Afrobeat legend Femi Kuti to perform a live tribute to James Brown. The results are captured here in album form, and it's a meeting of musical minds you won't want to miss, because while it wouldn't be quite true to say "you've never heard anything like this before" (not in a universe where 'The Man With The Red Face' exists) you likely won't come across a better example of the special magic that happens when electronics and live instruments collide, when jazz meets techno, for the rest of this decade, possibly longer! A sheer delight from start to finish.

Review: !K7 continue to celebrate The Exclusives DJ Mix series that takes a 'best of' selection of tracks that were produced and performed by the DJs who mixed some of the earlier DJ-Kicks albums. Highlights here include the moody ballroom house of Jayda G's "All I Need", Cinthie's all time classic "Organ" to Leon Vynehall's deeply seductive "Ducee's Drawbar". Mr. Scruff & CyberPunkJazz make the cut with their space oddity "3001: A Space Disco Remix" next to some higher tempo experimetalisms from Laurel Halo's "Sweetie" - and let's not leave out a rare Robert Hood number via the etroit legend's dubbed out "Focus". That, and much more!

Review: Robert Hood, the renowned techno producer, is set to reissue one of his most influential albums to mark its 30th anniversary. Originally released in 1993 under his alias, The Vision, "Waveform Transmission Vol. 2" encapsulates the raw techno sound that has come to define Hood's music. The album was created just as Hood was leaving his hometown of Detroit and moving to New York with Jeff Mills, his cofounder of the Underground Resistance label. Tresor, the German record label, has delved deep into its archives to bring a fresh release of this classic album to fans. With funky techno drum foundations and mind-bending details, "Waveform Transmission Vol. 2" set the bar high and has aged incredibly well. All hail Robert Hood!

Hectic
Hectic - (6:21) 134 BPM
Amazon Dust - (6:22) 132 BPM Hot
Review: Robert Hood's last release was his 2021 album under the Monobox alias, and Hectic sees him pivot back towards a more abrasive approach. It's audible on the hard-hitting title track, where the M Plant boss drops pummelling drums and firing percussion as a backdrop for wave upon wave of noisy sirens and stabs. Building and building until these elements reach an intense peak, "Hectic" marks an appropriately named return to Hood's more visceral sound. "Amazon Dust" meanwhile is marginally more reserved; resounding to tough drums and nickel-plated hi hats, it's powered by an insistent groove and a barrage of snare rolls.

Review: Next up on M-Plant's 'Perpetual Masters' series of remastered classics from the labels vaults, is the 2000 'Technatural EP' by Detroit DJ, producer and Underground Resistance co-founder Robert Hood. A classic piece of minimal techno, a genre which he arguably invented, 'Technatural' certainly has the signature 'unnatural' sounds that Hood found solace in. We've all heard the stories from his perplexing live sets during his earliest days in the scene, and how counter-culture it was back then, but nobody at that party in '95 would have known how influential his sounds would be, carving out new realms in techno. From the haunting melodies of 'Outlast', or hypnotic sounds of 'Pattern St' to the pace and energy of 'Teflon', a piece of art that probably sounds like an out of tune organ to the untrained ear.

Review: With 20 years spent releasing, distributing and representing techno and electro's finest producers, it's fair to say that ePM is a true champion of the underground. That commitment comes into sharp focus on EPM20, which brings together music from all of the Eps that the label released over the past year. The listener is really spoilt for choice: Regis delivers the beautifully ghostly techno of "Beyond The Reach Of Time Pt 1", while Robert Hood keeps the mood mysterious on the aptly named "Shadows". While the compilation spotlights prominent producers, it also showcases artists who sometimes fly under the radar - on this occasion, it's Paul Mac with the drum-heavy "Nothing Remains" and Carl Finlow's nocturnal electro on "Optogenetic". The fact that it's dedicated to the sadly departed Tim Baker is also a lovely touch.

Review: As befits one of techno's most revered labels, Tresor 30 is a comprehensive collection that takes in a breath-taking array of artists and sounds. The compilation features classics, such as Underground Resistance's "Final Frontier", remixed here into a clubbier shape, the spellbinding deep techno of Juan Atkins' "I Love You" and Jeff Mills' timeless banger, "Late Night", one of Tresor's signature tracks. These eternal works sit alongside contributions from newer artists: in particular, Afrodeutsche's "Can't Stop" is a wonderfully dreamy affair, while RRoxymore's "Multiplicity" teases new twists from percussive techno. Thirty years after its inception, Tresor is showing no signs of slowing down.

Funky Souls - (5:33) 125 BPM Hot
Funky Souls (Club 246 mix) - (4:35) 126 BPM
Review: Robert Hood launched his Floorplan alias with this 12" back in 1996 on his M-Plant sub-label Drama, which set the template for the funky and disco-fied energy the project would pursue thereafter - with the addition of his daughter Lyric. Amsterdam's Rush Hour presents this digital remaster as part of the much needed 2021 reissue, which features the pumping and totally uplifting main mix, with its addictive and looped-up vocal refrain sure to hypnotise dancers in the club as much as it did back in the mid '90s. The Club 246 Mix is also featured, which goes down a deeper route, quite unlike anything you've ever heard from the Minister Of Techno before. This is the kind of sensual late night mood music you'd expect fellow Detroiter Moodymann to drop in a DJ set.

The Majestic - (6:18) 131 BPM
Ultrasonic Room - (5:43) 131 BPM
Review: As its title suggests, Robert Hood wrote the blueprint for minimal techno, and this pioneering approach is evident throughout his latest EP. "Chroma Light" is vintage Hood, with the Detroit innovator fusing a looped organ riff with a sleek, linear rhythm. "The Majestic (Deeper Edit)" leans more towards Hood's Floorplan style, as incessant percussion powers a dynamic rhythm track. Meanwhile, on the original version of "The Majestic", he deploys dramatic chord sequences with razor-sharp hi hats and vocal snippets to create a more menacing sound. Rounding off this fine, harder-edged release is "Ultrasonic Room", which teems with jittery percussion and ominous, swirling synths.

Review: The ePM agency, label and distributor celebrates 20 years with a series of split EPs focused on techno, electro and house. First up is the techno release, with ePM attracting a stellar line-up to contribute. Robert Hood drops the eerie "Shadows", where menacing organs and steely percussion come together for a mesmerising slice of minimal techno. Ben Sims conjures up dense, tribal drums, interspersed with haunting wind chimes on "Xotnuc", while James Ruskin delivers the tough, steely rhythm of "There Was A Time". Remaining at the tougher end of the spectrum, the always consistent Mark Broom brings this part of ePM's celebrations to a close with the cavernous, pounding groove of "The Three Swords".

Sleep Is The Cousin Of Death - (5:04) 139 BPM
Hard To Kill - (6:37) 131 BPM
Review: Perhaps Robert Hood did indeed feel that his work was 'underestimated' when he released this record back in 1998, but this can hardly be the case anymore. The snaking, metallic rhythm and dramatic strings of "Black Man's World" still sound fresh, despite the passage of a quarter-century. Meanwhile, on "Sleep Is The Cousin Of Death", Hood showcases his ability to deliver deep, driving dance floor techno - the combination of pumping bass drum with dissected vocal sample here is particularly powerful. "Hard To Kill" is a darker affair, and its repetitive stabs combined with insistent rhythm shows that when it comes to tough but crafty techno, Hood has few peers.

Review: Robert Hood follows his recent Nothing Stops Detroit debut on Rekids with a full-length artist album. It shows that when it comes to delivering linear dance floor techno Hood has few peers. This talent is audible on lean tracks like "Fear Not" and the pounding kicks and soaring chords of "Falling Apart". But Mirror Man also shows that within an album format. Hood is not afraid to cast a wide creative gaze. "Through A Looking Glass Darkly' and "A Shattered Image" are chilling electronic soundtracks, while on "System of Mirrors", the Detroit veteran drops a hypnotic slice of techno that resounds to a throbbing bass and waves of frazzled percussion.

Review: Ahead of a new album, which is due out at the end of 2020, Robert Hood delivers this blistering debut for Rekids. The title track revolves around a heavy, rolling bass and dubbed out drums, the perfect opening track for this dance floor EP. "7 Mile Dog" sees Hood up the pace and intensity levels, as a looped chord is fused with pounding kicks and a frazzled bass to create an intense peak-time track. "Ignite A War" resounds to a steely rhythm and a pulsating bass, with the veteran Detroit producer lacing the arrangement with insistent stabs for maximum impact, while on "The Cure", Hood drops a pile-driving track that centres on pounding kicks.

Floorplan - "Save The Children" (Detroit mix) - (6:21) 131 BPM Hot
Review: Demonstrating again that techno is a deeply political art form, the latest release from Robert Hood was produced against the backdrop of recent events in the US. On "The Struggle", which Hood has put out under his own name, the Detroit artist fuses a searing acid backing track with a sample of a speech from activist Tamika Mallory about police brutality, which was given in the days following the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Shifting to his Floorplan alias, Hood continues to focus on politics; sampling a speech by comedian and activist Dick Gregory, "Save The Children" is realised in its original format as a disco-charged stomper, while there is also a chord-heavy Detroit take included.

Review: The idea that music should stay away from politics is flawed, and Break The Silence is one of the most convincing counter-arguments against this notion. Featuring unreleased tracks donated by a stellar cast of underground electronic music artists, the compilation seeks to raise funds for Campaign Zero, an initiative that campaigns against police violence in the US. With artists like Rob Hood, 4 Hero and Luke Slater all contributing to Break The Silence, the listener really is spoilt for choice while also supporting a great cause. However, the standouts come from Eddie Fowlkes and Jon Dixon, who both drop superb jazz-influenced house tracks.

Reflector/Rotate
Reflector - (6:19) 128 BPM Hot
Rotate - (6:26) 125 BPM
Review: 2019 is proving to be a very creative time for Robert Hood. Already this year, the seminal producer has put out a split EP with Mark Broom and now follows it with this solo two-tracker. "Reflector" is a dark, chord-heavy affair that builds and drops tantalisingly, with an undercurrent of menace as it progresses. Although it's a big-room track, it brings with it a subtlety that most such material in that category lacks. On the flip side, "Rotate" is a very different proposition. Deeper and slower, it sees the Detroit artist show a far more reflective and atmospheric side to his style.

Review: It's hard to believe that Internal Empire is a quarter of a century old. To mark this anniversary - and presumably to bring it to a new generation - Tresor has decided to re-release it. Combining an ability to distill electronic music down to its barest, most hypnotic form, Hood delivers wiry, receptive grooves like "Master Builder" and "Parade", the latter sounding similar to being trapped inside an assembly plant as the machines career out of control. Despite this mechanical precision, Internal Empire is also a masterclass in electronic funk. The glassy percussive bursts on "Within" and the layer-upon-layer tones of "Minus" show that when it comes to futuristic techno few works, past or present, can match it.

Review: Dekmantel rounds off a hugely successful year with a compilation that reflects the organisation's multi-faceted approach. At one end of the spectrum there's the dubbed out groove and spacey vocals of Peaking Light's "Blind Corner" and tropical act Bruxas' left of centre beats, while at the other end Robert Hood delivers the blistering techno of "Red Machine". In between these extremes, there are Dekmantel-supported artists such as Betonkust & Palmbomen II - impressing here with the Legowelt-esque "Renaat Egypte" - and zeitgeist-defining names like Lena Willikens and Matrixxman. Add in some Dutch scene veterans such as Tom Trago, on fine form with the epic but understated "Working Machines", and it's not hard to see why 2018 was a great year for the Dutch collective.

Review: The last commercial mix that Robert Hood did back in 2008 for Fabric re-ignited his career. Appearing at the tail end of minimalism, its hard-edged sounds provided a welcome relief to the prevailing sound. A decade on, the 66th DJ Kicks finds the Detroit artist once again in firing form. "Focus" signals his intent with its massive siren riff and pounding drums, while "Clocks", which builds and builds to electronic bee swarms, shows that he has lost none of his minimal techno firepower. Sure, there are other fine contributions, like Truncate's sheet metal banger "Terminal 5" and the shadowy riffs of Marcel Fengler's "Thwack" - itself a paean to Dr Motte's "Der Klang Der Familie" - but like the Fabric selection, this instalment of DJ Kicks is all about Robert Hood.

Review: The Motor City's godfather of minimal techno returns, doing what he does best on his revered M-Plant imprint, following up a tremendous LP as Floorplan and the well received Paradygm Shift series on Dekmantel. This furious three tracker features "Clocks", a mental and hypnotic onslaught featuring whirry synth textures with steely, hissy percussion throughout. It is undoubtedly the EP's most dynamic cut, but "Low Life" is classic Hood all the way with its repeating bell melody and good ol' claps on the kick showcasing his timeless cyclical style. Finally the moody "Go" is perfect to take listeners into the late night, with its near tribal rhythm and tunnelling/strobe-lit vibe that's absolutely geared for some 'heads-down' moments on the dancefloor.

Red Machine - (5:36) 129 BPM
Transform - (5:24) 127 BPM Hot
Review: The third and final series in Rob Hood's Paradygm Shift series for Dekmantel sees the Detroit producer in uncompromising form. "Red Machine" is a relentless peak-time number that resounds to frazzled, droning riffs, dramatic filters and tough tribal drums. Its approach is the opposite to Hood?s seminal minimal releases - the arrangement is "maximal" in the way that its spectrum seems densely populated - but there is no doubting its efficacy. On "Transform", Hood takes down the intensity levels a few notches, and lays down a rolling house groove, but its drums are tough-edged and the looped chords lend it a menace that is alien to his Floorplan releases.

Review: It's hard to believe that Soma has reached its 500th release. Slam started the label to provide a platform for the earliest house and techno strains coming from Glasgow during the early 90s. In the intervening years it has helped launch a number of careers - including a French duo called Daft Punk - and has become one of the great and most consistent underground labels. So what does its 500th release sound like? Unsurprisingly, it is still guided by the same principles that inspired the label's foundation. Slam take on Rob Hood's "The Bond We Formed" and deliver two versions. The former is a killer big room workout, while the "S25 Retro Fit" rework is reminiscent of the pair's earlier work, a jacking rhythm propelling a dark, filtered organ riff into oblivion. There is also a Slam rework of Carl Craig's classic remix of Gavin Russom and Delia Gonzalez' "Relevee", with the Soma bosses adding some steely drum muscle to the original interpretation. Here's to 500 more releases.

Review: Detroit innovator Rob Hood is the latest name to release on Dekmantel. The Dutch label and party organisers have put out work by an impressive array of artists, but persuading the Minimal Nation author is a true masterstroke. Shift, which arrives in time for the festival season, starts with the eerie "Preface" before Hood launches into the abrasive, metallic rhythm of "Idea" and "I Am", a clap-heavy groove whose central riff just keeps on building and building. There are echoes of Hood's minimal past on the loopy "Solid Thought" and the wiry funk of "Nephesh", but Shift captures Hood in big room mode and is the spiritual heir to the locked-on, peak time techno of the Detroit producer's Omega long player.

Review: Two heroes of the new breed kick off a new mix series for Jamie Jones' esteemed Hot Creations imprint. Jones began Paradise at DC10 (Ibiza) five years ago and it's gone on to be a huge success, inviting the biggest names in the business to come play alongside his crew of residents. The first mix is courtesy of Toronto's Nathan Barato, a frequent collaborator with local heroes such as Carlo Lio and The Junkies and whose career has been on the rise with releases on Cajual, Saved, Circus and Defected. Highlights include the Derrick Carter classic "Where Ya At?" (Mix Originale), Makam's brooding "Loleatta" and Jared Wilson's rusty acid odyssey "Girl, I'm Waitin". UK talent Patrick Topping this year completed his third summer as resident at DC10 in Ibiza for Paradise. Here Topping showcases the sound and style of his sets with high energy from the word go. His mix features several of his own productions guaranteed for maximum dancefloor impact, as well as Metaboman's lo-slung and exotic "Next Please" through to Dave Clarke's massive remix of Jark Prongo's "Movin Thru Your System".

Paradygm Shift (Volume 2)
Master Jack - (6:11) 130 BPM
Magnet - (6:32) 128 BPM Hot
Review: Hot on the heels of Detroit legend Robert Hood's first EP for Dekmantel, Paradygm Shift, comes this second volume of typically forthright techno cuts. Opener "Master Jack" is hypnotic and heavy, with spacey synth loops and starburst electronics riding a thumping bassline and relentless rhythm track (think fizzing cymbals, snappy drum machine handclaps, colossal kick drums etc). "Magnet" is altogether deeper affair, but no less devastating. Hood is a master at wringing maximum dancefloor effectiveness out of the least number of intertwined elements, and here works wonders with little more than stomping drums, metallic electronics, and some well-placed special effects.

Form - (7:20) 126 BPM
Lockers - (5:06) 128 BPM Hot
Review: The recruitment of Robert Hood is a sign of Dekmantel's growing stature as a label. The Detroit legend has agreed to release a trio of EPs and an album under the Paradigm Shift banner, a project title designed to reflect the producer's desire to see great change within dance music. This first EP is classic Hood, with A-side "Form" - all effects-laden drums, looped-up textures, hissing cymbals and cacophonous kick-drums - sounding like no-one else. Flipside "Lockers" follows a similar script, though there's a little more house-influenced funk to the relentless beats, while Hood's use of starburst riffs and classic Motor City electronics adds a sense of far-sighted adventure..

Robert Hood - "Shaker" - (6:35) 128 BPM
Floorplan - "Ritual" - (7:42) 128 BPM Hot
Review: British techno veterans Jonas Stone and Oliver Way have pulled off something of a coup here, not only by persuading Robert Hood to appear on their EPM Music imprint, but also by including a track from the Detroit legend's Floorplan alias (amazingly, Hood has previously kept the two projects entirely separate). Naturally, both tracks hit home hard. "Shaker" is prime Hood - an intoxicating, no-holds-barred techno looper built around a killer groove, foreboding chords and occasional vocal samples. On the Floorplan side, Hood reaches for the gospel organs, filtering and looping them up over a thunderous kick drum and typically relentless ride cymbals. As usual with Hood Floorplan material, there's enough soul in the machines to impress even the pickiest techno buyer.

Review: If one variation of confused blips and synth gurgles underpinned by a rock-solid 909 beat by Robert Hood isn't enough than indulge yourself in two. For this first chapter of the Moveable Parts EP series, Hood's work here will please those after some more Monobox action as both "Untitled 1" and "Untitled 4" are discombobulated versions of each other. If you're after a mutant version of the latter for the packed dancefloor however, Hood's got you covered with "Untitled Sketch". Does Hood ever disappoint? Never!

Review: M Plant's 20 Year anniversary celebrations are set to end on a high with a triple CD compilation featuring a wealth of new, remastered and unreleased material alongside some classics from the Robert Hood canon. Before then, the latest in an ongoing series of celebratory 12" releases sees Hood look to the classic Protein Valve, which was the first 12" issued on M Plant back in 1994. The title track has already been subject to some edits as part of this M Plant 20 series, but it's nice to see three tracks from that original 12" reissued here as a reminder how Hood's pioneering minimal approach first took shape. Look out for new Hood production "Analog Track (Ghost)" wedged in amongst the protein too!

Review: The Floorplan project show-cased Robert Hood's love of gospel-tinged house, but as this, his latest release demonstrates, he remains a techno artist through and through. The Protein Valve record originally appeared on M Plant 20 years ago and like Hood's Internal Empire and Minimal Nation releases, became a blueprint for minimal techno. On the "Re-Plant" and "Edit 1" versions, nagging, insistent percussion and an eerie organ sound create a sense of drama. However, the old approach proves to be the most effective and the second edit remains closer to the original sound, with jittery hats, unsettling organ riffs and the wind whooshing past in the background.

One Touch (taken from minimal nation) - (5:32) 128 BPM
Review: Some things never go out of fashion and this is especially true of Robert Hood's '90s minimalism. For those who didn't buy the releases first time round, these edits by Mark Broom provide the perfect opportunity to play catch up. The edit of "Untitled 1" from 1995's Moveable Parts Chapter 1 is the more abrasive track, its warped, jarring rhythm moving up and down the intensity scale with all the precision of a military drone. The UK producer's take on "One Touch", from the harder to track down Minimal Nation - the vinyl release sells for over €30 on Discogs - is less visceral but its repetitive filtering and sleek rhythm make it a must for any self-respecting techno DJ.

Eleven
Eleven - (6:58)
Alarm - (8:39) 126 BPM Hot
Review: The last time Robert Hood referenced the number 11 was the beatless track "The Age Of Eleven", appearing towards the end of his Wire To Wire album released ten years ago on the all encompassing Peacefrog Records. That, however, is where the similarities to this EP, Eleven, on Hood's own M-Plant, end. The chimes of "Alarm" sound similar to Luke Slater's "Bell Blocker", and a lot of what else can be heard that legendary album The Messenger. But again it's the title track that provides another production where the city of Detroit literally resonates within the music, painting visual imagery of factories and assembly lines done in a way that instantly make you think: Robert Hood.
