Robert Hood has announced that the next release in his Perpetual Masters series will be a remastered version of his 1998 EP, Underestimated.
With an updated master, Underestimated serves as the first release of 2021 on his M-Plant imprint. Retaining all of its clean grooves and no-nonsense approach, Underestimated is just as strong now as it was in 1998. Side A features classic anti-establishment cut “Black Man’s World” as well as “Sleep Is The Cousin Of Death.” On the flip, “Hard To Kill” still delivers on its namesake nearly 23 years later.
The Perpetual Masters series features remastered versions of classic cuts from Hood’s back catalogue, including The Pace / Wandering Endlessly, Stereotype, The Greatest Dancer, Protein Valve, and more. Underestimated will follow up Hood’s full-length 2020 album, Mirror Man, and the EP The Struggle / Save The Children, which centered around the Black Lives Matter movement and featured a sample from a speech by activist Tamika Mallory.
Last year, Hood also released music from the Floorplan project, which sees Robert produce alongside his daughter, Lyric Hood.
Underestimated will be released March 12th via M-Plant.
