AllMusic Review by

Renowned dance DJ Louie Vega's entry in Azuli Records' wonderful CHOICE DJ mix series contains a wide variety of classics, from seminal disco act Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band's "I'll Play the Fool" to the Clash's punk-disco outing "Magnificent Seven." Recorded live at Vega's home, this set has an intimate, relaxed quality that conjures the DJ spinning his favorite platters for a few friends, though the fact that these sides include historic recordings like ESG's "Standing in Line," Lamont Dozier's "Back to My Roots," and Cymande's "Bra" lifts it way above ordinary dance music mixes.
