This month sees the release of Omega, the new album from Robert Hood.
It’s a concept album of sorts, with the Detroit techno icon drawing inspiration from apocalyptic 70s sci-flick The Omega Man. But Hood’s “imaginary soundtrack” aspirations don’t get in the way of him delivering one of his most punishingly effective sets of recent years, a techno odyssey that flits from ominous ambient passages to piston-working club material with the kind kind of effortlessness and elegance conferred only by age.
