AllMusic Review by

Considering the Irma La Douce label focuses on easy listening and acid jazz much more than jungle, Drum'n'Bass in Movement is a solid collection. The producers, including Dub Alchemist ("Retrospective"), Slok ("Exalted"), and Skin 4 ("Aura"), rely on sleek, fast-moving drum'n'bass with waves of synth, similar to L.T.J Bukem or Goldie's early work. Though almost every artist here is known in Italy yet virtually ignored in the worldwide dance scene, one British jungle hero -- Alex Reece -- does make an appearance as a remixer. The Slok remix of "Livin' on Borrowed Time" by the Average White Band sounds suspiciously similar to Goldie's "Inner City Life."
