Robert Hood Delivers the Latest FACT Mix
- Words: Patric Fallon
In another bit of free music from FACT today, Detroit's minimal-techno godfather and XLR8R's current cover star, Robert Hood, put together an outstanding mix for the website's podcast series. Technically, the set itself comes from a live performance the veteran DJ/producer delivered in Barcelona during Sonar, but Hood agreed to publish it as his official FACT mix. It's actually a welcome change of pace from your average podcast, as we get to experience the artist within his element, controlling the energies of a dancefloor live and on the fly with old-school, bare-bones techno. The feeling can't be accurately captured with just turntables and a recorder in a DJ's studio; this is action and reaction each minute through. Download FACT Mix 170: Robert Hood here.
