AllMusic Review by

The sixth installment in the Freezone series of two-fer compilations continues the practice of focusing on downtempo electronica, but in this case guest compiler DJ Morpheus has gone for a jazzier-than-usual sound, selecting a roster of talent that includes Better Daze, Buckfunk 3000, London Elektricity, and Alex Gopher, whose "Moving Fast Man" incorporates a gloriously cheesy computer-generated voice alternately intoning the phrases "Doctor Disco" and "I am the moving fast man." Other highlights include the gently propulsive "Lisbon" by Aim, the dryly dubwise "Because It Does" by Bullitnuts, and Senor Coconut's "Mucha Frita," a strangely attractive combination of deeply tweaked synthetic percussion and Latin-jazz horns and vocals. There's nothing here that will blow your mind, but the mood is always pleasant, relaxed, and funky.
