Sometimes you wonder where the different parts of a record came from and how they got put together. At least Purveyors Of Fine Funk have the excuse that there were three of them at work. 'Space Pimps From Planet X' sits alongside Max Brennan's 'Moove' (from the same year) and Deep Space Network's 'A La Pulpe De L'Orange' (1993) in the ranks of Detroit-influenced techno symphonies that are made up of genuine 'movements' (further suggestions on a postcard, please), and the mind boggles about how those disparate parts ever made it into the same 7 minutes.

A joyous Boo Williams-esque bass stomp gives way to a midsection awash with naive, happy-sad melodies which, with the help of some choppy half-breaks, fall just the right side of sentimental. There follows a brief opportunity for catching your breath before a jaw-dropping drum fill brings back the stomp to the finish. It pulls off that supreme trick of sounding borderline chaotic, full of childish abandon, yet it's clear that sound combinations as natural as these - and moments as audacious as that drum fill - could only be the work of true musicians.

This whole EP is a perfect example on how you cut a great piece of vinyl.

High variety of dance music, deep, jumpy, techy, housey and techno. the proportions of the piano riffs and breaks are being pushed longer in "Your Body Keeps Me Satisfied", to be cut in the high peek point for rebuild. strong strong funky work!
