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.

Floorplan v Mark Broom
Floorplan v Mark Broom EP

This one bills itself as Floorplan Vs. Mark Broom, but there appears to be only one cut where the techno titans actually go head to head here. Mind you, it’s a damn good track - Mark Broom’s toughened remix of Floorplan’s gospel-techno banger ‘Never Go Old’ is absolute dancefloor dynamite. Elsewhere on the EP Floorplan turn in some mutant acid and Broom’s ‘Jungle’ is a bongo-techno jam that also jacks hard. Ravers of the world, an orderly queue please.

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.

Barbara Tucker
Beautiful People (Floorplan Remixes)

Positiva is currently celebrating a quarter-century in the game with a run of anniversary releases. Following entries from artists including Eats Everything and Mele, the seventh in the series sees Robert Hood in Floorplan mode and giving Barbara Tucker’s 1994 garage smash ‘Beautiful People’ a going over. That’s the one that goes ‘deep inside, deep deep down inside’ by the way. Both the remix and its dub are typically elegant takes by 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
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.

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.

Victorious

Floorplan is a fantastic name for a house music project, immediately focussing the mind on the only place that matters: the dance floor. It is, of course, the name under which the legendary Robert Hood makes his houseiest tracks, and Victorious finds him co-producing with his own daughter(!). Awesome. This full-length is available as a CD or as a DJ-friendly triple LP.

Floorplan (Robert Hood)
Music / Tell You No Lie

Floorplan is Robert Hood’s outlet for groovy, gospel laced, funky-as-hell, disco house. Music and Tell You No Lie are tracks featured on his upcoming sophomore album under the Floorplan moniker. These two tracks will stick in your head until your dancing legs can’t hold you up anymore. Sunshine, joyous, funk.

Floorplan (Robert Hood)
Never Grow Old / Phobia (Re-Plants)

The original version of 'Never Grow Old' was one of the highlights of Robert Hood’s first full length album ‘Paradise’, which quickly became a techno /house essential gaining massive respect and airplay within the genre. ‘Phobia’ is taken from Robert Hood’s equally well received and influential follow up Floorplan EP. These remixes are a fresh, more aggressive take on the original versions.
