AllMusic Review by

The fourth installment of Ubiquity's Ape Breaks series gives more of what the previous four installments so humbly delivered. This is a 40-minute excursion into the science of making beats, perfect for the producer looking for guilt-free, sample-worthy material or turntablists looking for a predictable funky loop to mess about with. A variety of tempos and textures are covered, and producer Shawn Lee generously made each break royalty free. While it may not provide for intriguing listening, it is a worthwhile purchase for underground beat fanatics searching for something outside of the Ultimate Breaks and Beats scope. As seƱor editor John Bush so deftly proclaimed upon initial listening, these indeed are the breaks.
