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 Interactive's "Forever Young," Kai Tracid's "Life Is Too Short," and Yves Deruyter's "Music Non Stop"; on the second disc, "Hiver & Hammer's Flight Over UK Mix," the DJs spin the likes of Kosheen's "Catch," Faithless' "Tarantula," and Prawler's "Deep Sense."
