Tresor Records unveils the reissue of the classic ‘Waveform Transmission Vol. 2’ by “The Vision” aka Robert Hood.

It’s proper to announce the reissue of a classic release on Tresor‘s catalogue, ‘Waveform Transmission Vol. 2‘ by “The Vision” aka Robert Hood which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. This brilliant masterpiece will be out May 26th, 2023 and definitely is a must to have it in the ‘best records’ collection.

Pre order Vinyl: Bandcamp

The 2LP repress of The Vision will also be available digitally on DSPs for the first time:

Released in the same year he left UR and his hometown of Detroit, Waveform Transmission Vol. 2 represents a pivotal moment in Hood’s career as his move to New York with fellow UR co-founder Jeff Mills led to Hood experimenting with a new work ethos through which he settled on his trademark sound.

Fast, aurally assaulting, yet funky – the release is techno as effective as it can possibly be; in this version, remastered by Thomas P. Heckmann, we see the first results of his transmutation as Hood manipulates the raw sounds he would soon distil into seminal works like Internal Empire and Minimal Nation.

Ever philosophical and spiritual, in the sleeve notes for the release Hood dedicated the release “to the form of simplicity, the reasoning of vision, the understanding of where we came from and how we got here and to the perspective we use to construct over destiny” -words which from our early 2020s vantage point almost foresee the influence this intuitive work would have on artists working from Birmingham to Berlin and beyond over the next three decades.
