AllMusic Review by

Soundz of Freedom takes some dancefloor hits from the back catalog of Bob Sinclar, aka French house producer Christophe le Friant, hands them over to a well-chosen set of remixers, adds a couple new tracks, and lays them out mix CD-style to create more excitement than the usual stopgap release. Subtitled "My Ultimate of Summer of Love Mix," most everything here goes well with sangria and sand -- since castanets, Spanish guitars, and plenty of Caribbean sounds figure into the mix. The opening title cut sets the stage with its positive vibe and uplifting Rozalla sample, and the good times roll on as glittery disco meets rousing tribal drums while words like "love" and "free" are dropped repeatedly. Remixers Tocadisco and Mousse T offer back-to-back highlights, an Axwell redo adds some deepness, and le Friant himself proves he's still got it with a handful of new tracks that would have made the cut on any of his proper albums. Even if this is one for the fans, it'll do just fine at any pool party -- just don't always expect such constant glitter and busyness from the Frenchman's normal albums if you're working backward from here.
