AllMusic Review by

The lead single off his upcoming full-length on his own Definitve Jux label, Stepfather Factory answers the question of what El-P had been producing besides, of course, music for the most impressive and prolific underground hip-hop label in the industry. On his own material, Producto drops his patented beat abstractions and vibrating robotics underneath astute observations utilizing a most impressive technical vocabulary as cerebral as his music, driving the brain into a nodding catharsis of directed thought and sonic appreciation. With the development and enhancement of a production style that has changed the sound of hip-hop in a post-Company Flow world, all signs lead to El-P's upcoming LP, which, like his entire body of work, promises to be a most influential achievement.
