Artist of the month: Robert Hood

Robert Hood makes minimal Detroit techno with an emphasis on soul and experimentation over flash and popularity. Having recorded for Metroplex as well as the Austrian Cheap label, the Germans Tresor and Hardwax, the English Peacefrog, the French label Logistic and Jeff Mills' Axis label, Hood also owns and operates the M-Plant imprint (including the two sublabels Drama and Duet), through which he's released the bulk of his solo material. Hood was a founding member, along with Jeff Mills and Mike Banks, of the Underground Resistance label, whose influential releases throughout the early and mid '90s helped change the face of modern Detroit techno and sparked a creative renaissance. Infusing elements of acid and industrial into a potent blend of Chicago house and Detroit techno, UR's aesthetic project and militant business philosophy were (and remain) singular commitments in underground techno. Hood left Detroit (and UR) with Jeff Mills in 1992, setting up shop in New York and recording a series of 12-inch EPs . Through the mid '90s, Hood has focused on his solo work, setting up M-Plant in 1994 and releasing singles such as "Internal Empire," "Music Data," and "Moveable Parts." Although his desire to remain underground has been replaced by an urge to reach a wider audience, Hood remains fiercely critical of artistic and economic movements destructive to inner-city communities and has combined his musical enterprises with outreach and social activist ends. His debut album “Wire to Wire“ took Hood's hypnotic minimalism to entirely new depths and territories, whilst his latest album 'Molecule' under the nickname “Monobox“ released on Logistic takes his productions onto new levels of musicality and sophistication within the world of electronic music.
AKA (solo): Floorplan, Hood Scientific, Inner Sanctum, Mathematic Assassins, Monobox, Robert Noise, The Vision / (in collaboration): H&M, Missing Channel, Underground Resistance, X-101, X-102

Label of the month: Palette Recordings

Palette Recordings was started by John Tejada in the fall of 1996. Frustrated with a&r people at other labels, it was set up as an outlet to release his own work. Many years later it has become a symbol of quality for finest techno music lovers.
