AllMusic Review by

House Party 013 is a collection of Planet E classics dedicated to the people of the Czech Republic and released on the country's Next Era label (the obvious connections between the two heavily industrial regions -- Eastern Europe and Detroit -- are obvious and unspoken). Just abrasive enough to satisfy fans of harder, Detroit-style techno, but with plenty of dancefloor attitude and house grooves to please clubfans, the collection tracks a few of Craig's Planet E classics ("Galaxy" by BFC, "Floor" and "Steam" by Paperclip People, "Stevie Knows" by Designer Music) plus a bevy of selections from other Planet E artists (Recloose's "Soul Clap 2000," Common Factor's "North Nights," Alton Miller's "Extasol") that prove surprisingly amenable to club consumption when compacted together into a 60-minute mix.
