In a contemporary review of Musik, Ben Turner of The Guardian stated that the album was "somehow managing to salvage sounds which others feel but fail to express. Musik is music as you've never heard it before."[2] The review concluded that "when people look back and hail Kraftwerk, Larry Heard, DJ Pierre and Derrick May as the most influential artists in this genre, they will soon include Plastikman in this roll-call."[2]
