An original member of the esteemed Underground Resistance crew in the early ’90s, Hood has managed to consistently adapt and innovate in the subsequent years via his own label M-Plant and compositions under his numerous aliases for respected labels like Metroplex, Axis, Cheap and Music Man.
Hood’s curation of DJ-Kicks follows only two previous mix releases, one for French label Logistic and another being the legendary fabric mix series. His brand new DJ-Kicks mix is said to exude the “trademark machine warmth and muscular sense of groove that makes Hood’s style so infectious”, with his own productions featured alongside tracks from a from a range of mainly European producers in the seventy minute run.
