AllMusic Review by

Resident Defected DJ Andy Daniell mixes together a house music set that's both tasteful and delicious on this 2015 annual set from Bargrooves, and he does so by honoring both the new and the old. It's both in the case of DJ and producer MK, since the man is a heralded veteran plus the comeback kid of 2014, but otherwise, Daniell has got Audiojack, Tensnake, and Detroit Swindle featuring Mayer Hawthorne as the kings of today, while Todd Terry, Terrence Parker, and Arthur Baker represent the names that are longstanding, and still standing strong. With Nona Hendryx, Martha Wash, and Jocelyn Brown on the mike, the set has diva power to burn, meaning anyone looking for a house music set that's not too hot (no sellout stuff here) and not too cool (no dissonant hipster stuff either) will find this one is just right.
