AllMusic Review by

This fat set features dubstep remixes of popular singles along with some odd, but very fun, choices. The hit selections run the gamut with everyone from Kanye West to Miley Cyrus represented, all of their tracks getting the addition of those druggy beats and fat bass from the more “pop” side of dubstep (meaning the sound is much more like Skrillex than Burial). Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So” and Phil Collins’ “In the Air Tonight” are both surprises, but the real wackiness comes when the Harry Potter movie theme and the theme from the video game The Legend of Zelda land on the track list. The silliest choice of the bunch has to be a tossup between the classical work “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” and the NBA favorite “Teach Me How to Dougie.”
