AllMusic Review by

Paul Oakenfold gets negative reviews for his DJ albums all the time, but the low rating accompanying this release has nothing to do with lackluster track selection or anemic mixing. Bust a Groove, released by the Hypnotic subsidiary of goth/industrial giant Cleopatra, is a beats-and-breaks record dating from early in Oakey's career, the late-'80s and early-'90s era when any budding producer could get a few ideas and samples from the dozens of breaks records littering the racks. This one includes short tracks like "Sexy Sax," "Jazzy Vibe," "Brixton Grooves," and "It's a Def Jam," each consisting of nothing but a short break repeated ad infinitum, with a single effects line doing the same thing. Avoid at any cost.
