AllMusic Review by

Featuring two versions of "Funky Bitch" and, more importantly, the anthem "Sex on the Beach," the Purple EP stands as one of the more prized productions in the early Electrofunk catalog. Driven by an interpolation of Prince's "Erotic City," "Sex on the Beach" was one of the two tracks -- with "Ass 'n Titties" as the other -- that catapulted the name DJ Assault into mass consciousness (at least in the Detroit area), with its soothing melodies, booty beats, and infectious vocal hook: "Let's have sex on the beach/laying in the sand/just you and me/hand in hand/now come on."
