On The Case (reissue)
Cat: MPM 37. Rel: 25 Jun 21
  1. On The Case (5:31)
  2. The Deal (5:32)
Review: Following the re-mastered re-release of Robert Hood's 'Underestimated EP' in March, we continue the Perpetual Masters series on M-Plant with a vintage Floorplan double-header. 'On The Case / The Deal' was originally released on M-Plant's subsidiary label, Duet back in 2001. At the time Floorplan was still in its infancy with just a handful of releases on Drama in the '90s, the seminal 'Paradise' album had yet to be conceived and Robert's daughter Lyric Hood hadn't joined the party.

Living It Up
Cat: MPM 10. Rel: 23 Aug 13
  1. Living It Up
  2. Wall To Wall
Review: ** FLOORPLAN REPRESS ** Not content with releasing one of this year's best techno albums under his own name, Detroit producer Robert Hood turns his focus to his Floorplan alter ego. While it may not enjoy the same profile as Hood side-projects like The Vision and Monobox, it does provide an alternative to his repetitive metallic techno. Indeed, the title track is a jacking house workout centred on a disco loop and the chugging train sounds sampled so memorably on Telex's 'Moscow Disko'. 'Wall to Wall' is more in keeping with Hood's trademark techno, but here too, the harsh snares and ominous, prowling bassline are offset by a filtered disco groove.

Shop (12")
Cat: MPM 42. Rel: 27 Jun 22
  1. Shop (5:39)
  2. 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.

Sanctified EP
Cat: MPM 13. Rel: 21 Jan 22
  1. We Magnify His Name (9:18)
  2. Baby, Baby (6:31)
  3. Basic Principle (4:54)
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.

Underestimated EP (reissue)
Cat: MPM 36. Rel: 15 Mar 21
  1. Black Man's Word (6:13)
  2. Sleep Is The Cousin Of Death (5:12)
  3. Hard To Kill (6:45)
Review: Robert Hood kicks off his M Plant label's 2021 with a big return for the Perpetual Masters series, with his Underestimated EP. The series is designed to serve up classic back catalogue tackle that has all been newly remastered and made available on vinyl, digital download and streaming. This one came out originally in 1998 and is a powerful and futuristic now as it was back then. 'Black Man's Word' is crispy, driving techno, 'Sleep Is The Cousin Of Death' offers scintillating synth work and 'Hard To Kill' traps you in dark loops.

Forwardbase Kodai EP
Cat: MPM 39. Rel: 28 Oct 21
  1. Forwardbase Kodai (6:17)
  2. Forwardbase Kodai (0 Phase remix) (5:48)
  3. Forwardbase Kodai (Robert Hood Re-Plant) (5:24)
  4. Homestead (9:36)
Review: Monobox is one of the many essential alias of Robert Hood, the Detroit techno pioneer and boy of the M-Plant label. He has an album of material coming up but two of the cuts here will not feature on it. They are another outlet for the man also known as Floorplan to perfect his minimalist take on techno with a futuristic and alien bent. The title track perfect encapsulates that approach and then 'Homestead' revels in the quietness of deep, cosmic, late night techno with its cinematic atmosphere and sense of devastating finality. Hood then remixes his own tune into a more bulky and shuffling house cut and O Phase debuts on the label with a fine remix of his own.

Regenerate (2xLP)
Cat: MPM 40. Rel: 24 Feb 22
  1. Rise (6:06)
  2. Blackwater Canal (6:30)
  3. Wargames (7:05)
  4. Angel City (6:07)
  5. Exoplanet (9:07)
  6. Drydock (6:32)
  7. Regenerate (6:04)
Review: Robert Hood continues his early-2020s winning streak with a new surprise LP, unearthing 7 new tracks from his vault. From 'Rise' to 'Regenerate', we're clear on a nascent theme of rejuvenation with this LP, perhaps most expressly represented by his new alias for the album, Monobox, which also saw to the very fresh 'Forwardbase Kodai' EP last year. Now Hood fleshes out his "alien project" further; the techno here is watery and reminiscent of the well-rounded Birmingham sound, with sound effects swinging and sloshing around the mix like extraterrestrial tentacles in a vat. Get your suction cups on this 2xLP ASAP.
