Boomkat Product Review:
One of Rob Hood’s most in-demand 12”s comes back around for a necessary repress over 20 years since original release.
As The Vision, Rob Hood provided Detroit techno a pinnacle of the artform. It may be justifiably best known for the lip-bitingly strong minimalist transport of Detroit: One Circle with its sparing central refrain “Detroit” and spine-playing riffage, or for the killer Explain The Style variant, but for us the EP’s shortest and freakiest number Modern And Ancient is also one of its strongest, a mad, half-stepping slice of Afro-futurist electro encryption that still blows our mind today.
Perfect record. 10 outta 10.
