Returning to Bethnal Green for a rare extended session is Robert Hood. Founder of M-Plant, Hardwax and Underground Resistance (with Jeff Mills and Mike Banks) Hood has built a name for himself as a Detroit techno pioneer. With an emphasis on soul and experimentation, whilst also infusing elements of acid with a potent blend of Chicago house and Detroit techno, Hood has been one of the esteemed DJs to truly change the face of modern Detroit techno and spark a creative renaissance in the genre.
Joining Hood is Future Terror’s DJ Nobu. One of Japan’s best and most respected DJs, Nobu was born and raised in Chiba, 40km southeast of Tokyo. Nobu first discovered music through getting involved in the hardcore and punk scene in his hometown in the ’90s. Nobu’s initial outings into DJing saw him experimenting with a mix of punk, hip-hop and dub, before being blown away by Jeff Mills at the storied Tokyo venue Liquidroom – a life-changing moment that led to the change in his style, moving towards the psychedelic, raw and powerful techno sound he’s known for today. Nobu’s reputation abroad has been growing steadily since Marcel Dettmann invited him to play at Berghain in 2010 and the more expansive coverage of his fabled Future Terror parties—held in Chiba since 2001. Due to his wide ranging experiences at the head of the dance floor, his collection of records is vast and diverse. Tough, deep, emotional and experimental, the Nobu sound is hard to define, yet its impact on the dance floor is undeniable.
