AllMusic Review by

Contaminated Material makes a fitting introduction for anyone unfamiliar with the electro sounds of Mas 2008. In the spirit of Model 500, Kraftwerk, and AUX 88, this mysterious collective on the Detroit-based Twilight 76 label presents four songs that sum up everything wonderful about electro. Everything one can ask for in a solid electro EP can be found here: the speak-and-spell robotic lyrics ("I'm a Rhythm Machine"), some transcendental synth tones ("Meine Freunde Sind Elektrisch"), some booty-shaking beats ("The Journey to the 4th Dimension"), and some modulating synth rhythms ("Straight Into the Future"). The way Mas 2008 applies each of these clich├ęs to different songs also adds to the appeal of this record, providing for an eclectic range of electro for the listener to sample.
