Robert Hood - Fabric 39
Title: Fabric 39
Artist: Robert Hood
Release: 17th March 2008
Label: Fabric Londom
When it comes to talk about Robert Hood I am at a loss for words. For me he’s one of the biggest personalities in electronic music… music. His biography is a book with so many amazing chapters, his notion of Techno, music and art is breathtaking.
His futuristic work and his visions of art and music changed the horizon of so many people. He is not the one who teaches people, he open eyes with his work and sound.
So when I heard that Fabric will do a recording with this artist my heart really pounds higher, and I am definitely not a teenager anymore…
You know if you the audience would be interviewed about what made an artist great and genius? Most of you music lovers would probably answer that he owns personality without repeating himself.
Fabric 39 is a fingerprint of Robert Hood, his genius in combing Techno music and art in a nonesuch way. You know I really thought about starting this review with a sentence like “ Robert Hood is sweat…”. That’s true for sure, but it wouldn’t represent the idea. Ok, this mix is a sweat driving one, but that’s not nearly the half truth. This mix combines a vision of an artist written like a book separated in chapters. This music goes straight in your face and if turn the stereo loud your amplifier will clip and the bass box will do a kind of natural distortion. A compressed mix with continuous power in the whole range of frequencies. But this mix is also wonderful, breathtaking, powerful and loud like watching a rose grow, or listen to the heartbeat of a bee, or can you hear the rain clouds whispering..? What want to say besides the power of this genius mix there can be found a rare and quiet beauty in between. Sure there’s no silence you can measure in decibel in this mix, but there’s safety in this mix. A feeling that this music that fascinated us for so many years won’t die, because of hypes and trends, it lives on, it changes, and it renews itself because of artists like Robert Hood.
Can you feel it?
10+10 … thank you Robert!
