Monobox 'Forwardbase Kodai EP' 12"
You might think that Robert Hood is an artist who is content with the successes he's achieved via his solo work and those alongside daughter, Lyric (as Floorplan) but this is not a man who easily rests on his laurels so after a long-time in the planning he is set to regenerate his much-loved Monobox alias with a new EP followed by an album in November.
In Robert's mind the idea for the new EP and album is that this vessel has been lying dormant for 40 or 50 years and is now beginning to rise up again, or regenerate.
His Forwardbase Kodai EP features two exclusive originals that will not appear on the forthcoming album. Robert's approach to this moniker was to create techno minimalism, but from an alien futuristic perspective and the title track sets the scene for this Monobox re-awakening, while 'Homestead' delivers a gentler but no less epic take on the bristling and sci-fi tinged techno sound.
Also featured on the EP is an imposing remix by Ø [Phase] making his M-Plant debut, alongside a blistering Robert Hood Re-Plant edit.
