Founding member of the legendary group Underground Resistance as a ‘Minister Of Information’ with ‘Mad’ Mike Banks & Jeff Mills, his seminal works on Jeff Mill’s Axis and his very own M-Plant imprint paved the way for a wave of stripped-down dancefloor minimalism that directed much of techno’s path throughout the late Nineties. Robert Hood makes minimal Detroit techno with an emphasis on soul and experimentation over flash and popularity.
Establishing his ‘We Are The Brave’ imprint in 2016, the label don has since collaborated on projects with acclaimed artists such as Sasha, Skream, Camelphat and Rebūke whilst welcoming techno’s finest producers to his fold. His no nonsense approach to A&R, upheld by his mantra ‘we do what we want’ sees him champion the musical output of both established and breakthrough talents alike. In four short years the label’s releases have accumulated over 30 million Spotify streams, provided the soundtrack for his weekly radio show and featured in the popular Netflix series ‘White Lines’.
Fast-forward to 2020 and the southern powerhouse shows no sign of slowing down, his ardour for music permeating all aspects of his career. The We Are The Brave frontman is well known for curating an evening of exceptional magnitude, having already showcased his roster’s talent at The Warehouse Project, Shine Belfast, Sankeys Ibiza and Fabric London.
