  • Juan Atkins' Metroplex will repress a couple of back catalogue titles from the mid-'90s. First up is Robert Hood's Spectral Nomad EP, released in 1996 under his alias The Vision. The valuable 12-inch came a few years after his sole album under that name, Waveform Transmission Vol. 2, and it fits into the chord-heavy minimal techno sound that Hood pioneered. Metroplex will also press up Black Noise's 1997 12-inch Nature Of The Beast. The duo of Mike Grant and Damon Peterson debuted on Metroplex with the 1997 EP and would go on to release three records on End To End, a sub-label of Grant's well-regarded Moods & Grooves. Listen to The Vision's "Spectral Nomad."
