Never Grow Old (Re Plant)
Never Grow Old (Re Plant) (grey marbled vinyl 12")
Cat: MPM 20. Rel: 09 Aug 23
Never Grow Old (re-plant) (7:22)
Phobia (re-plant) (5:35)
Review: The latest transmission of M Plant's 20th Anniversary celebrations sees label boss Robert Hood come through with some self styled 'replants' of recent Floorplan material. "Never Grow Old" of course originates from Hood's triumphant 2013 Floorplan LP Paradise, arriving midway through and impressive enough to feature in Ben Klock's Fabric mix. Here the gospel vibes remain but they are complemented by a searing Motor City key line that is really quite hypnotic over it's seven minute duration. Complementing this is a replant of "Phobia", one of Hood's last releases of 2013 which evens out the hoover rave overtones of the original in favour of some trippy synth loops that prove just as effective.

Sanctified EP
Cat: MPM 13. Rel: 09 Aug 23
We Magnify His Name (9:18)
Baby, Baby (6:29)
Basic Principle (4:53)
Review: ** Repress For The Hood Fans ** This much anticipated EP on his own M Plant label sees Detroit legend Robert Hood continue to develop to his Floorplan alias after the recent Living It Up single. The A-Side explores euphoric 90s house tropes in "We Magnify His Name", a peak time piano driven anthem which is as religious an experience to listen to as its name suggests, complete with uplifting gospel vocals. On the flip, Hood explores his darker techno tendencies over two tracks. "Baby Baby" relies more on a cut up vocal sample and a slightly wobbling Motor City leaning bassline and a Model 500 style funk swing to it, provided in no small part by a particularly great guitar lick, while tension and release is offered in spades by a well placed horn sample. "Basic Priciple" meanwhile is a druggier affair propelled by its murky sub bass and techno stabs, the only melody coming from a particularly sinister two note organ line.

So Glad
So Glad (12")
Cat: MPM 32. Rel: 08 Dec 22
So Glad (7:14)
I Feel Him Moving (6:15)
Review: While Robert Hood's Floorplan records have always been exciting and on-point, they have somehow got even better since his daughter Lyric joined him in the studio in 2015. The pair's latest gospel-sampling release is particularly potent, with both cuts sounding like peak-time anthems in waiting. We're particularly excited by A-side 'So Glad", a killer mixture of thumping techno grooves, dreamy deep house pads, looped piano snippets and brilliantly cut-up gospel vocals. That's not to say that the B-side is much weaker, though; in fact, with rasping preacher vocals, bustling Chicago house beats, mind-mangling organs and insatiable drum fills, it's arguably even bigger.

Tell You No Lie (8:31)
Review: A taster for Robert Hood's second Floorplan album, this EP puts a spotlight on the radical nature of his musical transformation. On "Music", the visceral rhythms of techno minimalism are gone; in their place is a rolling, tracky groove that boasts a repetitive vocal loop and which has shades of classic Relief /Derrick Carter. "Tell You No Lie" is even more impressive. It sees Hood use a gospel vocal over a stomping, funk guitar-sampling disco house workout. There is an audibly religious dimension to "Tell You No Lie," but Hood's knack for writing a great tune means that it sounds celebratory rather than self-indulgent or preachy.

Learn (7:01)
Review: While Floorplan's line-up now also contains his daughter, Lyric Hood, for years the project was a solo alias of Detroit techno maestro Robert Hood. This two-tracker dates from that period, with both cuts originally appearing on M-Plant sub-label Duet way back in 2002. Two decades on, both still sound fresh and are excellent examples of Hood's full-bodied but minimalistic approach to Motor City techno. 'Shop' sees him layer looped organ notes, freestyle, high-register synth solos and angular electronics over a driving, locked-in techno beat, while 'Learn' is deeper and more hypnotic with plenty of energy-building TR-909 drum machine fills, psychedelic acid tweaks and faintly foreboding electronic riffs.

Protein Valve 1 (3:27)
Analog Track (Ghost) (6:17)
Protein Valve 2 (4:22)
AM Track (5:33)
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!

Mark Broom Edits
Cat: MPM 19. Rel: 09 Aug 23
Untitled 1 (Mark Broom edit) (6:05)
One Touch (Mark Broom edit) (5:26)
Review: When Broom met Hood! To celebrate M Plant's 20th anniversary, Robert Hood is planning a whole host of events and releases including a sequence of 12"s that see classics and rarities remixed and edited. Who better to inaugurate the series than Hood's UK contemporary Mark Broom? Here Broom digs deep into the M Plant archives, choosing to work with "Untitled 1" from Hood's Moveable Parts series and "One Touch" from the Minimal Nation album. Canvas Hood fans and the majority will probably nominate the first edition of the Moveable Parts series as one of their favourites, so it's little surprise that Broom elected to add his own signature dirty funk to the opening track for this 12". His edit of Minimal Nation opener "One Touch" proves to be just as effective, playing toyfully with the bassline whilst dicing the beats with undoubtedly dark results.

The Greatest Dancer
Cat: MPM 14. Rel: 29 Nov 22
The Greatest Dancer (4:48)
Dancer (6:51)
Review: ** Repress For The Hood Fans ** Emboldened by the reception to his overlooked and revisited Floorplan project, Mr Robert Hood turns to a track of a similar nature for the latest release in the M Plant Perpetual Masters series. The main slinky hook from Sister Sledge's "He's The Greatest Dancer" may have been subsequently bastardized by Mr Will Jiggy Smith, but Hood's minimal sampling of the same source on the 1991 track "The Greatest Dancer" must have sounded thrilling then. It still does today, remastered and is complemented on the flip by "Dancer", a new Hood jam that is as close to outright disco without losing that trademark Detroit grit as you can get.

Hectic (12")
Cat: MPM 44. Rel: 03 Oct 22
Hectic (6:21)
Amazon Dust (6:25)
Review: Stepping up with his first new material since the Monobox album in 2021, Detroit's minimal master Robert Hood is back with a heavy-hitting two track 12" on M-Plant. 'Hectic' is indeed the word as he fires off blasts of siren-like synths over a crushing rhythm section, pitched keenly at peak time and giving an upwards thrust in all the right places. 'Amazon Dust' gets a touch trippier with its circular bell tones and low frequency rumblings, but it's no slouch in the energy department either. The experience and instinct oozes out of this record - as if we'd expect anything less from such a legend of techno.

Technatural EP

Outlast (5:05)
Tactel (4:08)
Pattern St (4:51)
Teflon (6:43)
Fiber (4:21)
Review: The latest addition to M Plant Us' remastering series, the 2000 EP by Detroit DJ, producer and Underground Resistance co-founder Robert Hood is being brought back to the masses two decades later. 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. 'Pattern St' should be legally protected as a national treasure with its writhing industrial whirring, not to count out how incredible the other 4 tracks are. 'Teflon' is a piece of art that probably sounds like an out of tune organ to the untrained ear. I wonder if Hood still has that bow tie in a box somewhere...

Internal Empire (3:26)
Minus (5:25)
Within (3:11)
Home (7:33)
Rek (10:23)
Chase (5:55)
Spirit Levels (5:07)
Review: For the latest volume in their essential reissue series, Tresor has decided to offer up a brand new edition of Robert Hood's celebrated 1994 debut album, "Internal Empire". A quarter of a century after Hood first committed it to wax, it remains one of the Motor City maestro's most potent and inspired works. It effectively defined his throbbing, minimalist style, with heavy and hypnotic cuts such as the bleeping "Minus" and deep and wonky "Within" perfectly encapsulating the stripped-back genius of Hood's production. If you've yet to acquire a copy, we'd recommending grabbing one of these: in truth, no techno collection is complete without it.

Moveable Parts Chapter 1 EP
Moveable Parts Chapter 1 EP (clear vinyl 12")
Cat: MPM 24. Rel: 29 Oct 14
Untitled 1
Untitled 4
Untitled Sketch
Review: If one variation of confused blips and synths 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!

Protein Valve (Re-Plants)
Cat: MPM 21. Rel: 10 Jul 14
Protein Valve (re-plant)
Protein Valve (edit 1)
Protein Valve (edit 2)
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.

Track 1 (18:55)
Track 2 (15:45)
Review: Detroit techno innovator Robert Hood and Afro beat king Femi Kuti is not a pairing we thought we would see but it is one we are glad we have. They join forces on the former's M Plant label for this superb collision of musical worlds. It is unified by Afro beats and a unique mix of futuristic ideals with Femi's improvised jazz sax leading the way over Hood's cosmic synth sounds. The album was recorded in just one 30 plus minute take which is all the more of a testament to each artists's abilities. Femi's exquisitely free-flowing playing and Hoods signature grooves are perfectly intertwined in this great coming together of two avant art forms.

Review: Tresor dig deep into the vaults for a reissue of one of Robert Hood's many seminal releases. This one comes under his The Vision alias and is an impressive 30 years old in 2023. It came originally in the year he left his Detroit hometown and the safety of the Underground Resistance label and head to New York with Jeff Mills. The music is fast and furious and funky as you would expect, with funky techno drum foundations and mind melting details up top. It set a ridiculously high standard and hasn't aged one single bit. All hail Hood.
