The flurry of activity surrounding M Plant's 20th anniversary celebrations shows no sign of abating as we reach the midway point of the year, with the latest offering from Robert Hood a rare revisitation of his Monobox alias. You have to peel through eleven years worth of Hood releases to get to the last time the Detroit icon used the Monobox alias (the Molecule EP on French label Logistics for the fact checkers out there) but this pair of new productions under the guise demonstrate he's lost none of his intentions to approach "minimalism from an alien, futuristic perspective". The deep and melodious "Film" appears here ahead of it's high profile presence in Marcel Dettmann's upcoming Fabric mix and it's a nice complement to the tougher machine funk of "Rectangle".
