Currently better known by the Bass heads for his sounds released under his alias OKTORED, the Detroit based producer COCKY BALBOA is back on the emblematic JUKE TRAX label with a new EP entitled « Jit Town Get Down ». The two first tunes of this project are very close to the 90’s vibes of Ghetto Tek productions when the two other tunes opening smartly on new horizons : mixing the old pattern with new genres of bass music such as the Moombahton. The result is quite catchy & groovy therefore very danceable! Every good things that you can expect from the Ghetto Bass music is in this EP. Recommended!

New release on Music Man Records : ROBERT HOOD « Motor : Nighttime World 3 » Album

Posted by on 09/20/2012 | Category : Album-EP Reviews / Stay informed by subscribing to RSS Feeds or to Twitter


ROBERT HOOD has just released the 3rd installment of Nighttime World Series on the Belgium imprint : Music Man Records. This album comes 12 years after the 2nd volume (on P-Lant – 2000) and 17 years after the 1st volume (on Cheap – 1995) therefore the Detroit-based master ROBERT HOOD has already passed through 3 decades of Minimal Techno production. « Motor : Nighttime World 3 » is a deep project connected to the previous via its straight touch related to the 1st and via its fine groove related to the 2nd. But this album has got also its own strong musical identity (more Acid than the others) and above all its own story. Indeed, about this post-dystopia album ROBERT HOOD has announced that he has been stimulated especially by the chaotic report of the JULIEN TEMPLE’s documentary entitled “Requiem For Detroit?” which is focused on the damage caused by industrialization of Detroit city. As everyone probably knows, at their beginning in 90’s UNDERGROUND RESISTANCE (founded by MIKE BANKS, JEFF MILLS & ROBERT HOOD) have been very influenced by the committed philosophy from the Hip-Hop band PUBLIC ENEMY however despite the fact that MILLS & HOOD are still involved in/with Detroit, according to me, these 2 emancipated soldiers of UR look finally more related to the motto of an other rapper named…RAKIM : “the most important thing isn’t where you’re come from, but where you go”. That remains the real point of Art. Therefore ROBERT HOOD’s production don’t lock the audience up in the Detroit’s darkness but take you somewhere in the future where you will be able to reach a kind of hope.
As his usual, ROBERT HOOD produces his music with a real sincerity, the tracks are solid and the most part deserves easily to be mentioned as masterpieces. This album should speak to any kind of music lovers, even those who aren’t familiar with electronic, indeed this producer has the serious talent to keep a such deep musicality in his no non-sense & raw productions. It’s very fascinating to see & to listen a pioneer from the renowned 92′ Techno period who successes to maintain a such quality of music in 2012! Therefore thumb up, this installment is obviously the best release of this end of summer and also a new awesome piece to add to the timeless series. Highly Recommended!
