Minimal Nation

Click title for audio

This newly remastered and redesigned special edition of Robert Hood's 1994 album includes a mixed bonus disc, plus the previously unreleased and the rare: 'SH-101' and 'Self-Powered.' Relentlessly funky and riding the high hat towards 140 beats per minute and beyond, "Minimal Nation" is rejuvenating in 2009. Tracks such as "Sleep Cycles" offer an interesting contrast to the current sound of minimal techno. The triple white vinyl edition is available from Clone Records.

The USA re-release party for "Minimal Nation" is on July 4th at Water Taxi Beach, NYC.
