Veteran techno producer lines up three EPs and an album for the Dutch label

With three festivals planned, it already looks like the Dekmantel team have a busy year ahead. Up next on the label however is a project alongside Robert Hood, called Paradygm Shift, which will take in three EPs and an album. You can check out clips for ‘Form’ and ‘Lockers’, the first result of the project above.

“The idea behind Paradygm Shift is similar to a shift in our focus,” says Hood. “We can become so complacent; we are so comfortable with our surroundings, I think this is the time for electronic music to find a new mindset.

“I have been busy with my Floorplan alias and reintroducing Monobox over the years, but at the same time I felt it necessary to reiterate Robert Hood as an electronic music artist who is bringing minimalism back to the forefront, and not to get to lost in the melody. I want to get back to the simple repetitive programming that I’m known for, and to me it was returning that, but shifting the listener’s focus and not staying on the plane that we are used to.” Hood gives a brief background to the collaboration below. The first EP is set for release on February 22.
