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
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.

Floorplan (Robert Hood)
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.

Mark Broom
Stunned (97 Mix) / Decay

Works old and new from Pure Plastic label-owner Mark Broom for this release on Robert Hood’s famed M-Plant label. As implied, Stunned (97 Mix) dates from way back when, though it’s thudding powers have been tweaked to 2015 levels without losing that original sound. On the B-side is a brand new techno slammer, ‘Decay’.
