AllMusic Review by

The four songs on this first release in the Purpose Maker series share similar qualities, characterized most notably by repetitive grooves that loop for long periods of time. The "locked" sound of these sounds -- 909 bass kicks, high-hat percussion rhythms, some odd yet subtle samples -- aid the DJ's ability to mix records at a quick rate and also make it easy for people to feel the rhythm, resulting in dancing. This first release contains four equally stunning songs that execute this simple formula for great dancefloor techno with genius accuracy and functions also as an omen for the other amazing Purpose Maker records to come.
