AllMusic Review by

Some may say that it appears as though club/dance record labels are running out of new approaches -- after all, how many remix albums can a single artist release? But the Renaissance label has come up with an interesting new series, 3D. A three-disc set, the first disc, "Club," contains selections from live sets; the second disc, "Studio," contains exclusive remixes and re-edits of the artist's own material; while the third disc, "Home," contains favorite selections from other artists who served as an inspiration. In order to qualify for the 3D series, you have to obviously have a large body of work behind you, so it's fitting that the first in the series is Satoshi Tomiie. The end result is that it's a fine way to sample Tomiie's best work, and also his influences, as evidenced by such tracks as "Love in Traffic," as well as Miles Davis and Gil Evans' "Solea."
