AllMusic Review by

Glittery production is the thing on Urban Explosion, a collection that allows you to catch up with ever changing world of rap, dancehall, and R&B. It's the dancehall element that makes the collection unique and a good indicator that the compilers are from the U.K., where they don't care so much for labeling genres or sticking to just one. The brash dancehall of Elephant Man, the slick sexiness of Missy Elliott, and the stylish 2-step of the Artful Dodger all mix well and it's doubtful you could put a mixtape this hip together on your own. Don't expect any 12" mixes but Urban Explosion instantly makes you cooler than you already are.
