Robert Hood Motor: Nighttime World 3

Robert Hood Motor: Nighttime World 3
As revealed in recent documentaries Detroit Lives, Detropia and Requiem for Detroit?, artists across the globe have become increasingly fascinated with this crumbling metropolis. Therefore, there's never been a better time for Robert Hood to revisit his reflective, meditative Nighttime World series. With Motor: Nighttime World 3, the second-wave Detroit technoist gives the (literally) shrinking city an inspiring and hope-filled soundtrack. Of course, this perspective is completely implied and dependent on backstory, as Hood lays down 12 minimal tech instrumentals. Building off old-school mallet beats, Hood lets his synth explore these seven- and eight-minute landscapes, often drifting from rhythmic movement to rhythmic movement, giving each track a symbolic feeling of pedaling forward while feeling lost and dispossessed. With "The Exodos" and "Slow Motion Katrina" placed alongside "Better Life" and "A Time to Rebuild," Motor: Nighttime World 3 demonstrates how Detroit isn't just housing the next generation of artists, but inspiring them.
