Following on from Lyric Hoods solo release, Everything / Social Distance in July, M-Plant takes us into August with the first new release this year from Robert Hood and Floorplan.
Opening the proceedings is a solo mission from Robert Hood. The Struggle opens with acidic-funk thats highlighted by Tamika Mallorys stirring speech following the murder of George Floyd, before launching into powerful stripped-back Techno. This is protest music, Hood-style.
The rest of the EP is devoted to Robert and Lyric Hoods collaborative Floorplan project. The original version of Save The Children brings tough House with blazing horns and vocal refrains to continue the themes of social change. While the Detroit Mix goes deep and bassy, overlaid with poignant vocal samples including the words of Dick Gregory.
