The exceptional music mechanic Robert Hood is firmly back in business for 2011, kick-starting the new decade with more M-Plant excellence. James Ruskin takes a break from an impressive release offensive on his own Blueprint label to remix ‘Alpha’, the first single that was taken from ‘Omega’, Robert Hood’s concept album of last year. The remix adds a touch of Ruskin magic to this A-side. While maintaining the essence of Hood’s initial track, James provides a fresh outlook that is sure to be as well received as the original. Over on the B-side Hood delivers a brand new track called ‘The Family’. This is classic Robert Hood with its unrelenting rhythm, powerful bassline and a good dose of the funk. While most of us struggle through the cold, this will be firing up dancefloors the world over.
