Minimal Techno教父Robert Hood，自Alpha(The Beginning)到Omega (End Times)，聲音在現實與虛幻當中穿梭，自上一張wire to wire後，睽違七年，終於推出這張「近乎完美」的全新大碟《Omega》，展開瘋狂與極簡並存的巡迴演出。R.H將自己設想為世上最後存活的人，在腦海中演繹那種掙扎的過程，不但要承擔寂寞與幾近瘋狂的精神狀態，還要面對一群渴望血肉的殭屍。

“Before I got into this music I wanted to be an originator ; I wanted to be original”.
Robert Hood needs little introduction. 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. Having recorded for Metroplex, Jeff Mills' Axis label, as well as Patrick Pulsingers 'Cheap' label, Peacefrog, and more recently Music Man, Hood also owns and operates the M-Plant imprint, through which he's released the bulk of his solo material. He has only released 2 ever CD mixes, one for French label Logistic, and a mix for the club 'Fabric' mix series.
One year after the re-issue of ‘Minimal Nation’, Robert Hood returns in 2010 with a new album ‘Omega’. Based on the 1971 classic science fiction film, ‘The Omega Man’ starring Charlton Heston, the album’s concept is a long-held vision of Hood’s, who saw the film as a child and was deeply influenced by it. While the themes of urban decay and post-apocalyptic world find an echo in track names such as "The Plague (Cleansing Maneuvers)" or "Towns That Disappeared Completely", the music itself navigates between ambient experimentalism, low-key minimal grooves, and dancefloor adrenaline rush. With its stripped down minimalism and its stomping machine funk, the album has already won praise from magazines and websites around the world such as Time Out, BBC Music or Fact Magazine.
