As part of M-Plant's 20th Anniversary, it's the perfect time for Robert Hood to re-visit one of his other decisive monikers, Monobox.

As Robert Hood stated in his 'Fireside Chat' for RBMA Radio: 'Monobox was an alien project. I read this book when I was probably around 13 or 14. It was this ominous black box that came from some other universe, and it was just sort of hovering over the planet, over a cornfield somewhere. After maybe a few weeks it began to open up and objects and these creatures from another world began to emerge from this box. The whole thing about Monobox was that it was an alien life form. To approach minimalism from an alien futuristic perspective.' (Click here to hear the rest of the interview www.rbmaradio.com/shows/robert-hood-fireside-chat)

With the 'Realm', 'Downtown' and 'Population' 12's released on M-Plant between 1996 and 2001, followed by 'Molecule' for the French label, Logistic in 2003 it's been some time since Hood has delivered any new Monobox cuts but with M-Plant's 20 year celebrations well under way he re-introduces us with the tracks 'Film' and 'Rectangle'.

The deep and melodious tones of 'Film' are beautifully offset by the tougher machine groove of 'Rectangle', with both tracks conveying the hypnotic minimalist approach of Hood's otherworldly Monobox sound.
