Boomkat Product Review:
Choice selections from Rob Hood's 1994 classic, 'The Protein Valve'. The original cuts mark a point in Hood's seminal catalogue where he really defines his own style of minimalism to deadly effect. Yet for our 2p, they're outshone here by the crazed 909 bassline and chopped drum patterns of 'Analog Track (Ghost)' which is built with the sort of sleight of hand and crazed edits that producers simply don't, or can't, do nowadays. Even if you're overly familiar with the originals, that new cut is worth the entry alone.
