AllMusic Review by

The DJ Convention series comes from the Polystar subsidiary of Universal Germany, and they commission DJs Hiver and Hammer to provide a mix for each volume's second disc. The first disc is always labeled "The Hit Disc," while the second is centered around a specific theme in each case. These compilations feature a number of bona fide Euro-dance hits, but they're surrounded by a large number of unknowns, making the series rather insubstantial. The first disc of this volume includes the Joker's "Milky Way 2001," Pulsedriver's "Cambodia," and Fragma's "You Are Alive"; on the second disc, "The Ultimate Club Mix," the DJs contribute a mix with the Utah Saints' "Lost Vagueness," Musique vs. U2's "New Year's Dub," and Andromeda's "Body Control."
