Only a techno god like hawtin could pull off such a wonderful techno trip. With four decks at a time along with his Roland TR909 and an FX module the techno genius mixes 38 tracks into just over 60 minutes. The honest mixing free from computer intervention is reminiscent of "Jeff Mills, live at the liquid room£". Play it loud and by the intermission at track 23 you will be breathless. PURE GENUINE UNADULTERATED CLASS.

This is great. Right from the start you get the feeling that this is more than just your average techno mix CD. Hawtin's ability to construct a decent set is shown off well, as is his skill with the EQs. You can take most of this CD on two different levels: the majority of the tracks are quite urgent with a sense of an impending adrenaline rush, great to dance to but it is also good for home listening aswell as the changes mixed in are quite subtle, making you listen to its complexity. Some may think I am going over the top, but I thoroughly enjoy every single play of this CD be it night, day, work or play. DW

Format: Audio CD
It doesn’t often happen that one finds Techno music you can listen to, but this album is one of those rarities. In its subtle texturing it reminds me of the work of Beaumont Hannant or even Autechre. Like a slow evolving aural sculpture, it snakes its way into the mind and reaches a climax now and then, as on the only vocal track, Nitzer Ebb’s Let Your Body Learn. (Well, besides some scattered vocals on the last track, Rhythm and Sound). Never harsh or intrusive, the bubbling beats are quite hypnotic and like those brain-training metronomes they’re also calming and probably have a benign effect on the brainwaves. That’s not to say that the beats don’t make your feet itch – this is probably a dancefloor killer of the first degree. This is a charming album of intelligent, listenable Techno.

Outstanding, if you can handle it... 1 Jan. 2001
By "littleoldme" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I recently picked this up with a little hesitation, having heard that the mix was basically just hard, banging, no-frills techno. That is true. Other mixes have obvious peaks and valleys, for instance, while "Decks, EFX, and 909" has... harder drumbeats for the peaks and more subtle bass for the valleys. While other mixes have lots of vocals and warm synth tones, here we have... drums and bass. (Occasionally some human voices, but don't count on it.) In other words, this is not a Top 40 dance mix - it's strictly for the brave.
But, if you are one of the brave, check this out now. It's very intense, but also very danceable, and the constantly shifting rhythms and programming keep you from getting bored. Oddly enough, if yo're into techno, the subtle changes in drum patterns and stabbing synth lines is more interesting than a lot of more mainstream stuff with many more elements to the tracks. This mix is a triumph of minimal techno. If you're looking for something hard, intense, and raw, add this to the shopping list.

It does NOT get any better than this. 4 Feb. 2005
By S. Stroud - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"A Music Fan" is an idiot. Do not listen to him. DE9 is NOT repetitive... at all. In fact, this CD is a perfect example of speed and diversity... Hawtin is just so good at subtle layering and mixing that "A Music Fan" probably didn't notice it. Make no mistake. This is straight-up techno at it's absolute best. Hawtin is a madman behind the decks. He has an almost superhuman control of rhythm that goes beyond simple mixing from track to track. At times in this CD he layers four different elements on top of one another. He does so with almost superhuman speed... just as you start getting hooked on one pattern he starts up another hypnotic beat. The structure of this CD is perfect. He starts out with some slow thumping grooves and gradually turns it into a frantic slam fest before bringing it all back down again.

This entire CD is totaly danceable or perfect for chilling. I am quite fond of listening to it on long car trips. I put it on repeat and let it go.

BEYOND AMAZING- THE TECHNO MASTER AT WORK 8 Sept. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is my favorite techno cd. Period. I heard it for the first time last month, and fell in love with it. It builds a tremendous amount of energy and variety, and it is very much like Richie Hawtin's live sets(for those who haven't been lucky enough to experience them...)
Decks, Efx & 909 is a journey through minimal "bare bones" techno with moments where some extra complexity is thrown in for effect. This is NOT a boring album, but is rather a slick monster of an album which EVERY techno fan and partier should own, and listen to before putting on their fat pants and heading out.

unreal 12 Jun. 2000
By tyrantlizard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
i've heard too many compilations that are just a bunch of songs strung one after another...this is something different. techno turntablism. the mixing on this is FLAWLESS. you're almost never hearing less than two tracks layered together. the use of EQ and volume is excellent. and there's some tricks on here that I have NO idea how he did them. he must have eight arms.
however, this is straight, unadulterated, minimal, percussive techno. if melody's your thing, don't get this.

The Man is Pure Genius 4 Jan. 2000
By James - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD is a trip from the beginning to the end. Like the master of techno he is, Hawtin starts off with an introductory lesson in hard beats and schools the uninitiated as he slowly gives you a taste of what's to come. By song 14, he unwinds with a barrage of Jeff Mills tracks that just seem to get harder and harder, until he mixes in a Nitzer Edd tune, which is just plain evil. Unlike most techno CD's that peak, and then fall flatter than American beer, Richie keeps goin and goin, layin' hard track after hard track, with surgeon-like skills. Technically and emotionally, this is one of the best CD's I have ever had the pleasure to experience! By the way that NYE party w/ Richie in Detroit was wicked.
