AllMusic Review by

Like the film documentary on which it's based, the soundtrack to Modulations offers an illuminating overview of the history of electronic music -- while with only a dozen tracks there are certainly endless numbers of landmark recordings left out, the album is still a fine primer to the genre, tracking the music's evolution from the Giorgio Moroder-produced Eurodisco of Donna Summer's "I Feel Love" to Afrika Bambaataa's groundbreaking hip-hop classic "Planet Rock" through to Detroit techno and into jungle (Goldie's "The Shadow").
