AllMusic Review by

On the four tracks on this EP Unit invites us on a studio tour. "We Are in Love" is Unit's love affair with electronica and with his electronics. 909 drum machines pump into 808 drum-and-bass rhythms, accompanied by stop-and-go Kraftwerk-like sounds. It's a trip.

Though Unit is more than the sum of his contemporary influences, "Haldol" is the best impersonation of an unlikely summit between Autechre and Tangerine Dream yet. "1.4 Four," with its soaring, outer space electronics and hissing, morphing hip-hop samples, sounds Germanic, too, like Klaus Schulze reinventing himself as Aphex Twin. "Tri Parallax" is everywhere: part Black Dog, part Richard Kirk, its residual beat streams and over-arching synth curls spill out of the amplifier.
