AllMusic Review by

The populist yin to Prototype, Vol. 4's judiciously unfamiliar yang, the first half of Creamfields 2001 emphasized Seb Fontaine's ability to abuse designer dance's big guns. Mirroring Britain's strained retro-house, Fontaine was quick to pull out Roger Sanchez's top-end disco-house favorite "Another Chance," Orinoko's 4AD-like "Island," the Chemical Brothers' vast but itinerant remix of Fatboy Slim's "Song for Shelter," and X-Press 2's cribbed Orbital attempt, "Smoke Machine." But Yousef had other ideas, and his stateside set of bleached 4/4 funk spelled more trouble for the Creamfields name, implicitly refusing to take British dance anywhere but the '70s.
