Detroit legend Robert Hood has had a prolific 12 months. Late last year he released the epic Motor: Nighttime World 3. Hood returned this year with another excellent full-length under hisFloorplan alias. This ep succeeds in reconciling the pioneering minimal techno Hood's built his name upon with the more melodic (yet equally hypnotic) instincts of the Floorplan project. Opener And Then We Planned Our Escape, relies mostly on driving a kickdrum for percussion. A panning, filtered synth swirls around a three beat piano loop proving once again that less is more. Strobe Light and Side Effect are classic Robert Hood - amped up, minimal Detroit techno.
