Floorplan
Fiyaaaa! / His Eye Is On The Sparrow feat. Carol Otis

Since 2016, Floorplan has been a compelling collaboration between Nineties techno icon Robert Hood and his daughter Lyric, a coming together of the old-school and the cutting-edge. While they put together another studio album, this 12” single arrives to plug the gap, consisting of a new track ‘Fiyaaaa!’ along with a cover of gospel hymn ‘His Eye Is On The Sparrow’. 

Floorplan
Supernatural

As the duo's debut on the Aus Music label, Robert and Lyric Hood's Supernatural LP is a brilliant recreation of their iconic Chicago house sound. It's their first release in three years, but if such standout cuts like 'There Was A Time' and 'Oasis' are anything to go, then it was one worth waiting for.

Floorplan
So Glad / I Feel Him Moving

Floorplan, the duo of legendary producer Robert Hood and his daughter Lyric, come through with two slamming new DJ tools. ‘So Glad’ combines minimal techno, house, disco and gospel to ebullient effect, its choppy vocals and burbling bassline ricocheting around the club. On the flip, ‘I Feel Him Moving’ is a shuffling preacher-house delight in the vein of Simon’s ‘Free At Last’.

Robert Hood
Master Builder

Detroit techno innovator Robert Hood released his classic album Internal Empire in 1994. It was a classic of minimal techno. It is being reissued to celebrate its 25th anniversary. To add extra weight to those celebrations there's,  a re-cut of the album’s single, Master Builder. On Tresor.

Robert Hood
Reflector / Rotate

The Reverend Robert Hood is back on the scene with some typically potent minimal techno. Reflector / Rotate sees Hood applying the lessons in euphoria he's long taught as Floorplan to his more stripped back productions. Minimal yes, but featuring the kinds of musical tricks that'll leave the dancefloor's heart in its mouth. On M-Plant.

Robert Hood
Internal Empire

When truly groundbreaking records are made, they sound as fresh 25 years after their initial release as they did back in the day. This is most-certainly true of Robert Hood’s minimal techno masterpiece Internal Empire. The album has been remastered and re-cut on CD and 180g vinyl and will be released through its original label, Tresor.

Robert Hood

The Vision
Spectral Nomad

The Vision is an alias of a certain Robert Hood, the Detroit techno mastermind. Spectral Nomad dates back to 1996, when its tightly-packed minimal style caused a stir among the deep listeners and the club rollers alike. Saying that, these four tracks can still turn heads today. This exciting 12” re-press is courtesy of Metroplex.

Robert Hood
Clocks / Low Life / Go

One of the foremost figures in minimal techno since the beginning of the 1990s, Robert Hood is still going strong. ‘Low Life’ accompanies a wonky little organ motif with a stomping tempo, ‘Go’ goes deep with a samba layout and minimal bleeps, while highlight ‘Clocks’ ingeniously switches up layers of stuttering snares over a windy, rubbery bed. It all comes off as very deftly composed, dynamic and lush.

Robert Hood / Floorplan
Funky Souls

This 12” vinyl was originally released in limited edition in 1996, Rush Hour have repressed this Robert Hood classic for everyone to enjoy once again. Hood’s Floorplan series created to incredible funky disco house. The original mix is perfectly minimal in its groove, and the club 246 mix features a sample from Kool & The Gang - Open Sesame.

Robert Hood
Paradygm Shift

Detroit techno legend Robert Hood has been plenty busy dropping gospel-tinged workouts as Floorplan in recent years, with Paradygm Shift being his first album since 2012. Arriving on Dutch dance music hub Dekmantel, it’s a return to the minimalistic, raw techno Hood pioneered, revealing the soul within the machines. It’s high time techno switched gears, ‘cause the man from the Motor City said so.

Paradygm Shift - Volume 3

Robert Hood completes a three part techno odyssey with a final 12", one track, one side. On the A we're on a stripped back, hypnotic polymetric journey; the B side meanwhile swings the groove out almost into deep house. These two cuts compliment each other, clearly the work of a celebrated Detroit pioneer.

Robert Hood
Paradygm Shift - Volume 2

Techno authority figure Robert Hood issues further dancefloor missives from his Detroit fiefdom. Paradygm Shift - Volume II treats us to two fiercely focused tracks that barrel along on pulsing minimal rhythms and intense synth patterns. These cuts will suck you in all the way. 12” on Dekmantel.

Floorplan (Robert Hood)
Let The Church EP

Underground Resistance founder and Detroit techno legend Robert Hood joins up with his daughter Lyric Hood to form the Floorplan alias on M-Planet. Let the Church EP on 12” vinyl is precise, formal minimal techno that never loses sight of its soulful roots. Fatherhood hasn’t softened Hood’s love of dense electronic music.

Junior Boys
Big Black Coat (Robert Hood Remix)

Synth-pop dudes Junior Boys recently released their first album in half a decade, and they’ve been welcomed back in the best possible way: by having the legendary Robert Hood one of the album’s tracks! Big Black Coat gets sliced and diced into a full-on 9-minute floorfiller: the Boys must be chuffed. 12” on Dan Snaith’s Jiaolong imprint.

Robert Hood
Minimal Nation

Robert Hood’s Minimal Nation is a pretty serious player in terms of Techno albums, making a massive impact when it landed in 1994. Here it is remastered and reissued onto three whole slabs of white vinyl, with two rare unreleased / rare tracks thrown in. The set also contains a CD. Impressive collection, from M-Plant.

Robert Hood
Paradygm Shift - Volume I

Founding member of Underground Resistance and minimal techno originator Robert Hood returns on Dekmantel. Paradygm Shift - Volume 1 is the debut of a new project from Hood, one that involves the Detroit icon updating and refining his sound, without losing his raw edge. This is hard and metallic machine music, powered by beautiful melodies.

Robert Hood / Floorplan
Shaker / Ritual

Robert Hood underlines the importance of maintaining multiple aliases by releasing under two different names on the 12”, both under his own name and as Floorplan. Serious dance power on both sides from this consummate professional: I’m moving in my seat to ‘Shaker’ right now. On EPM.

M-Print : 20 Years Of M-Plant Music

There’s something kinda poignant about the fact "Never Grow Old" - featured here on the second of this 3-CD set - has been one of the biggest techno tracks of the last year. After 20 years of making high-tech soul -- and despite a turn to God -- Robert Hood’s work still sounds like something from the future, and not even in a kitsch way. Plus, massive props to anybody who can make a gospel track work on the Berghain dancefloor.

Robert Hood
Mark Broom Edits

One of many coming EPs to celebrate the 20 year existence of the M-Plant label, the Mark Broom Edits are just a piece of the massive techno landslide you might be caught under, if you don’t watch out. Remixing classics of Robert Hood, Mark Broom gives a new air to some classic Robert Hood tracks.

Robert Hood
Eleven

Robert Hood continues to see techno as a genre in infinite flux and refuses to stop making it; Eleven is the latest product of his tireless work, offering two original tracks that continue to hone the traditions of techno, minimising technique to maximise impact. As always, his work is supremely balanced.
