Whenever Robert Hood hands over the reins for the next release for his legendary M-Plant label, you can know for sure that it will be a rare moment for whichever producer he chooses. It's no surprise that Hood has now named world-renowned techno stalwart Mark Broom for the next release, which is titled Stunned. The pairing of Broom with this label makes total sense as he's previously been entrusted to provide edits of Hood’s tracks for the label’s 20th Anniversary celebrations (MPM19), and is currently tearing up dancefloors with his unreleased dubplate mix of Floorplan’s "Never Grow Old."
The original version of Stunnedwas released on Mark Broom & Dave Hill’s renowned Pure Plastic label back in 1997. The "97 Mix" started as a live mix of the track, which Mark has now tweaked for maximum dancefloor devastation. The record is also accompanied by a new composition of equally outstanding quality called "Decay," which showcases Broom's tight production skills delivering the kind of tough, raw techno that will rest perfectly on M-Plant.
You can listen to the original version of "Stunned" in the video below, and you can check out Robert Hood and Mark Broom performing together at the HYTE x M-Plant party on Saturday, October 17 at Warehouse Elementenstraat in Amsterdam during ADE.
