AllMusic Review by

After a spate of increasingly generic mix albums released during the late '90s, the DMC label spun the idea in an interesting new direction. The world's leading DJs, beginning with Danny Tenaglia, compiled collections of their favorite downtempo tracks suitable for chill-out rooms, late-night apartment parties, and all those long, tedious drives to and from clubs. Tenaglia's volume includes downbeat house tracks from some excellent producers, including Herbert, the Gentle People, Outside, and Bang the Party. Tenaglia also shows his age (that's a good thing) with a few tracks from older names -- Roy Ayers ("Running Away"), Sergio Mendes ("One Note Samba/Spanish Flea"), CeCe Peniston ("Keep on Walkin"), and Yello ("To the Sea"). The vibes are laidback and just right, proving Tenaglia knows his way around living rooms just as well as dancefloors.
