Decks, EFX & 909 is a 1999 compilation album by Canadian electronic music artist Richie Hawtin. It was created utilizing two turntables, an effects box, and a Roland TR-909 drum machine.[7] Subsequently followed by DE9: Closer to the Edit (2001) and DE9: Transitions (2005), it is the first entry in his DE9 series.[8]

Critical reception[edit]

John Bush of AllMusic gave the album 5 stars out of 5, saying, "The result of Hawtin's obvious labor of love is a mix album that manages to be simultaneously intense and moody, pummeling yet restrained."[1] Joshua Klein of The A.V. Club said, "even though his Detroit-indebted mix stays pretty subdued, it never gets boring."[2] Amanda Nowinski of Billboard called it "a pure testament to the artist's passionate and innovative DJ style."[7]
