AllMusic Review by

Despite holding numerous scratch and battle titles, adding both the Vestax and ITF gongs to an already unprecedented two consecutive DMC wins, perverted three-piece Tony Vegas, Plus One, and Prime Cuts have built a reputation inside the clubs far beyond their demonstration of a mastery of the turntables, with well-conceived and, importantly, inclusive selections that mix hip-hop with breakbeat, classic funk, and even drum'n'bass. This apocalyptic mix follows in the vapor trail technical trickery of Skitz, Roots Manuva, and Peanut Butter Wolf, building upon the well-received B-Boys Revenge and Champion Soundz mixed sets, with an apocalyptic mix that links the spooky cinematics of Lalo Schifrin with Origin Unknown's classic jungle mash-up "Valley of the Shadows" via a selection of some of the finest beats from the preceding decade -- the trio's dig in the crates uncovers such gems as Shadow's "Entropy," Kool G Rap's evocative "Streets of New York," and the highly sought-after "Ghetto: Misfortune's Wealth" from 24-Carat Black.
