Robert’s recent work as ‘Floorplan’ has really brought him to our attention again, and after witnessing him destroy the Slam Tent at T In The Park a few months ago, we knew it was the perfect time to bring him to Headway for his Dundee debut!

Robert Hood needs little introduction. Founding member of the legendary group Underground Resistance as a 'Minister Of Information' with ‘Mad’ Mike Banks & Jeff Mills, his seminal works on Jeff Mill's Axis and his very own M-Plant imprint paved the way for a wave of stripped-down dancefloor minimalism that directed much of techno's path throughout the late Nineties.
Robert Hood makes Detroit techno with an emphasis on soul and experimentation over flash and popularity. Having recorded for Jaun Atkins' Metroplex, Jeff Mills' Axis label, as well as Patrick Pulsingers 'Cheap' label, Peacefrog, and more recently Music Man, Hood also owns and operates the M-Plant imprint, through which he's released the bulk of his solo material. He has only released 2 ever CD mixes one for French label Logistic, and a mix for the club 'Fabric' mix series.
Last year he changed the game again, dropping his first full length album as Floorplan, (Hood's alias for house, soul, techno and disco). The phenomenal "Paradise" LP went on to annihilate dance floors from start to finish - "Impeccable... as usual" (Juno), "4/5" (Resident Advisor), "8/10 - completely absorbing" (XLR8R).
Now celebrating 20 years of his label M-Plant, he has always been widely credited with founding minimal techno. For all his rep as the "Godfather of Minimal", it’s clear he draws his inspiration from soul and funk. With the return of Floorplan he is now delivering "the most enjoyable house sessions in recent memory" (FACT Magazine), counting Ben Klock, Kyle Hall, Jeff Mills and just about every other producer that matters as his friends and fans.
"Robert has always maintained what we've always needed in Electronic Music, a simplified and intelligent view of Future Music. He's built an impressive career almost single-handedly" - Jeff Mills
