AllMusic Review by

DJ /rupture fans who are able to remember his excellent studio record from 2004 (Special Gunpowder) shouldn't be surprised at the variety or quality of 2008's Uproot mix album. A collection of downtown techno experimentalism, and including a cast of collaborators close to /rupture's heart, Uproot sounds of a piece, and actually a little monotonal compared to his sprawling, guest-heavy production album of four years earlier. That said, Uproot earns high marks for its cohesion, with clashing effects never getting in the way of its insistent groove (it is a mix album, after all). Highlights come with the dub digitalia of Ekstrak and the contributions (both a track and a remix) from Team Shadetek.
