27th October 2017
Two techno titans descend on Oval Space on 27th October, for a Halloween Friday special. Robert Hood, the legendary Detroit artist, returns to Bethnal Green for a rare headline set, joined by an extended session from revered Japanese DJ and Oval Space resident DJ Nobu.
M-Plant founder, Underground Resistance alumni, Detroit techno pioneer: Robert Hood is a true legend of the 4/4 form, as relevant now as 25 years ago. The man behind seminal techno labels Hardwax and M-Plant, Robert Hood also founded Underground Resistance with contemporaries Mike Banks and Jeff Mills. Today, Hood remains a key figure on the contemporary techno scene, whose all-conquering moniker Floorplan has been responsible for some of the past few years’ biggest dancefloor hits.
He’s joined by Chiba techno royalty DJ Nobu. In Japan, he is most widely known for his fabled Future Terror parties, an event he’s run out of his hometown Chiba for over ten years. But it is as a DJ and record collector that Nobu is truly special. While most DJs lean on old favourites and the tried and trusted, Nobu’s selections speak to the wealth of music that remain undiscovered, and inspire us to keep digging deeper.
