Minimal Nation

Minimal Nation by Robert Hood
Released: Jan 1994
Label: M-Plant
Long before "minimal" became a parody of itself, it was a rallying cry. Inspired equally by Detroit's promise and collapse, its architecture and its ruins, Robert Hood wrung the maximum emotion out of just a handful of synths and drum machines. By turns urgent, angry and reverent, Minimal Nation offers a vision of funk at its most skeletal, with filters curling and tones flexing like muscles and ligaments around a stainless-steel frame. This 2009 edition adds a few tracks and switches up the sequence -- no big deal, since the original 2x12" was as much DJ tool as album experience.
