AllMusic Review by

Armed with three turntables, DJ /rupture devours and recontextualizes the work of artists like Foxy Brown, Nina Simone, Shinehead, Aaliyah, Roberta Flack, DAT Politics, Mahmoud Fadi, Donna Summer, Kid 606, and Cex. This relentlessly danceable collection of beats, noise, and dub concrete, DJ /rupture's first full-length statement, isn't just a party mix -- like DJ Spooky, DJ /rupture is spelling out a political thesis. Whether mixing the Middle East-meets-Africa sounds of Nubian artist Mahmoud Fadi, appropriating a Foxy Brown lyric, or reworking Cex, Minesweeper Suite dissolves the boundaries between artistic genres and disrupts the legacy of colonialism by respectfully juxtaposing cultural differences that underlie various source material -- and in doing so, forces listeners to confront their notions of genre, culture, and ethnicity.
