In Hour 1 we welcome Robert Hood, founding member of the legendary group Underground Resistance (with ‘Mad’ Mike Banks and Jeff Mills) following the release of his third and final installment in a trilogy of EP releases for Dekmantel Records, that initially began back in February 2016. 'Paradygm Shift Volume 3' embraces the trademark, minimal, funk techno sounds that defined his earlier career and is an extension on the concept as outlayed by Hood during the project’s conceptual stage: ‘‘The idea behind Paradygm Shift is similar to a shift in our focus. We can become so complacent; we are so comfortable with our surroundings, I think this is the time for electronic music to find a new mindset.’’ He’s currently finalising a new EP due for release in April on his own M-Plant label.
In Hour 2 we hand over to Canadian producer CFCF, also known as Mike Silver who has been producing for nearly a decade on labels like Paper Bag, 1080p, International Feel Recordings and Arts and Crafts for his last release alongside Jean-Michel Blais. He had this to say about his mix;
'I tried to make a mix that reflected some of the ideas in my 12”, where raw emotional prog house intermingles with goofball filter house. I think I’m always searching for a nugget of truth inside discarded music, even prog house and goa and tech house. The few more current tracks sprinkled throughout serve to reorient the listener to present day, whose anxieties at first undercut the plastic euphoria, but are ultimately mixed and normalized back into the catalog of the past.'
