Farr is known for his tough, uncompromising techno, but on his debut album, there is a change of direction. Maybe it's because he is coming of age or it could be linked to the final edition of the Bloc Festival, but whatever the reason, a melancholic, reflective sensibility prevails here. From the eerie ambience of "RPM (Dedication) Beatless" and "AM05" to the lithe break beats of recent single "Post Bloc" and the broken beats of "Coping Mechanism" there is a bluesy, subdued feeling on Purpose. Maybe it's the realisation that it is indeed the end of an era - and the beginning of a new one - but whatever the explanation, even the noisy techno of "Crunk" and the industrial strength "Minehead" can shake the sadness at the heart of Farr's debut.
