Robert Hood

“Before I got into this music I wanted to be an originator; I wanted to be original”

I think this cat is someone we should be hip to. Hood is a pioneer of the Detroit scene and has stood the test of time. This is a mix he did for XLR8R magazine a couple months back, and I really enjoy it. His minimalism is really interesting for me to think about in our age when every second of a track these days is filled with noise. I wonder what work quiet can do for us? How can we be an original by breaking out of past molds like Hood?
