Robert Hood gives us the third installment of Nighttime World, ‘Motor’, released via Belgian label Music Man. The first two volumes of Nighttime World released in 1995 & 2000, with their more gentle, jazz inspired moments, have long been some of my favourite works from Hood - just as seminal as ‘Minimal Nation’ or ‘Internal Empire’. Overall ‘Motor: Nighttime World Vol. 3′ is more beat driven, with a lot less of the jazz-inspired flair of the previous volumes - not that this is a bad thing. Hood’s knack for quirky percussion and beautiful strings is still evident throughout, but we also get to hear a 303 and vocal samples in a few of the tracks - nods to Basic Channel and Kraftwerk can also be heard. ‘Motor’ sees Hood building on his sound while retaining his distinct style - highly recommended.
