Former Underground Resistance member, a dj and a producer. Mr. Hood was known in the early days as the MC for Underground Resistance live acts as Rob "The Noize" Hood. He got interested in making music and today he runs his own record labels which include M-Plant, Drama and Duet - Hardwax was also his label but it is now defunct.

Mr. Hood began his music-making career with another Underground Resistance-member, Jeff Mills, and together they started Axis records, collaborating on some of the first releases. It is also possible that Robert took part on making some of the early Underground Resistance -records, as they don't always specify who wrote the music).

After working with Mills, Robert took it on himself and started making music on his own. His style can be described as minimalistic, sparse and abstract. One of his nicknames is "The Father of minimal techno". He used to live in Detroit, moved away for some reasons, but his current place of living is unknown, possibly back in Detroit.

Notes:

Internal Empire 2x12" re-issue on Tresor (Tresor 77) has some amount of misspresses, there are wrong tracks on second vinyl.

First few pressings of Minimal Nation on Axis Records was misspressed with other record being 4 untitled Jeff Mills tracks and other record with correct tracks.

Missing Channel is Robert Hood & Claude Young.
