AllMusic Review by

Hot Productions' collection of early-'80s electro goes beyond the average to include a few lesser-known tracks from the seminal era. Beside the easily available classics ("Planet Rock," "Jam on It," "Set It Off," "Electric Kingdom," "Hip Hop Bee Bop [Don't Stop]"), obscure acts like Quadrant Six, George Kranz (with the original "Din Daa Daa"), and Key-Matic (the hilarious "Breakin' in Space") make Diggin' in the Crates more enjoyable than the average electro compilation.
