It sounds like Rob Hood could be a victim of his own success. Floorplan, which started off as a side-project, is starting to sound as vital as the searing minimal techno he releases under his own name. The title track is a perfect example of Hood's tough approach to house music; over an insistent groove a building chord sweeps in, taking with it a repetitive vocal sample. But it's the nagging, relentless filtering of these elements, coupled with the deep resonance of the backing rhythm that make "Ego" so memorable. "Confess" is an entirely different proposition; the groove chugs along and the percussion is dry and steely but the keys are positively uplifting and wide-eyed, like they were borrowed from a long-lost rave track and reapplied to Hood's functional take on house.
