‘Forwardbase Kodai EP’ features two exclusive originals that will not appear on the forthcoming album.

With two outstanding original cuts, Robert Hood bringed back his much-loved Monobox alias and put out a new EP titled ‘Forwardbase Kodai‘. The tracks will come out next friday October 29, 2021, as the prelude for the album in November. Also featured on the EP is an imposing remix by Ø [Phase] making his M-Plant debut, alongside a blistering Robert Hood Re-Plant edit. The idea behind this new EP and album is that this vessel has been lying dormant for 40 or 50 years and is now beginning to rise up again, or regenerate. Stay tuned, full details below.
