Album: Film, Rectangle - Single, 2014. As Robert Hood stated in his 'Fireside Chat' for RBMA Radio: 'Monobox was an alien project. I read this book when I was probably around 13 or 14. It was this ominous black box that came from some other universe, and it was just sort of hovering over the planet, over a cornfield somewhere. After maybe a few weeks it began to open up and objects and these creatures from another world began to emerge from this box. The whole thing about Monobox was that it was an alien life form.

Film opens proceedings. With darting electronics and melodic synths riding a hypnotic, clap heavy groove, it s as hypnotic and engaging as you d expect, with a more picturesque feel than many of Hood s productions. Rectangle is a touch dubbier with more than a hint of acid within the chaotic electronic squiggles and relentless kick drums, while grandiose cymbals give the track a sweaty, energetic feel. This is something of a treat for techno fans: a rare appearance from Robert Hood's sci-fi inspired Monobox project. Amazingly, the last original material Hood released under the pseudonym was way back in 2003.
Track listing: 1. monobox – ‘Film’. 2. monobox – ‘Rectangle’. As part of M-Plant’s 20th Anniversary, it’s the perfect time for Robert Hood to re-visit one of his other decisive monikers, Monobox. As Robert Hood stated in his Fireside Chat for RBMA Radio: Monobox was an alien project. The deep and melodious tones of ‘Film’ are beautifully offset by the tougher machine groove of ‘Rectangle’, with both tracks conveying the hypnotic minimalist approach of Hood’s otherworldly Monobox sound.
