Nov. 22 at Rashõmon Club dancing the night away to the notes of Robert Hood and daughter Lyric's project: Floorplan
Robert Hood, is not only a DJ and producer but is considered one of the founding fathers of minimal techno.
With a distinguished career in music production for more than 30 years, Hood has built his legacy as the progenitor of this genre from experimental sounds that blend equal parts deep and hypnotic notes.
Born in 1965, he was the founding member of the legendary Detroit group "Underground Resistance" with Jeff Mills and Mike "mad" Banks, a project created with the aim of expressing criticism and rebellion against the socio-political situation in which his more-than-industrial city found itself in the early 1990s, through the creation of a pure avant-garde genre.
His techno, in fact, could be described as a mixture of house and gospel.
Although his desire to remain underground has been replaced by a desire to reach a wider slice of the public, Hood remains absolutely critical of artistic and economic movements destructive to "ghetto" communities and has combined his musical endeavors with of social engagement.
The Vision, Monobox, Missing Channel, Assassin and chose to use for his productions. Industry insiders cannot fail to recognize the incredible contribution Hood has made to the genre; we are not simply talking about techno but a true culture that finds its origins in research and experimentation within an ever-evolving musical context.
Innovative sounds for Robert Hood's techno.
In 1994 he founded M-Plant, a record label with which he released mainly works signed by him following up on his idea of minimal techno music. Singles produced include Music Data and Moveable Parts. In 2002 he produced Point Blank on Peacefrog and in 2003 Molecule under the name Monobox.
"Internal Empire" was the first album made by Robert Hood after his exit from Underground Resistance.
The record represents one of the most important works in Hood's entire discography and encapsulates the compositional essence of minimal techno. This release marks the turning point, the beginning of a genre and a musical philosophy that over the years will be deepened and taken as a staple by many DJs and producers. Track after track, "Internal Empire" continues to offer sounds that are as innovative as they are current.
Hood never stops and is always ready to raise the bar and move the envelope: meeting people from all over the world, hearing how they talk, feeling the support and enthusiasm, are the elements that have pushed him to always go further, not only musically but also from a personal point of view, at a time in history when techno is alive with a new energy and enthusiasm.
Robert Hood has chosen to always remain true to his image as a DJ, leaving behind passing fads and relaunching his unique sound time and again. His tracks are the result of research and thoughtful work that still allows him to express what is his vision of techno music, contaminating sounds in a structured way.
We look forward to seeing you on November 22 at the Rashõmon Club with Robert Hood, ready to enjoy the full energy of his live show. No excuses!
