AllMusic Review by

Like the other albums in this series, Disko Tech functions as a relentless barrage of progressive trance anthems, quickly mixed from one track to the next. For those who prefer quantity over quality, then this album is worth the money, as Gatecrasher crams as many songs on each album as possible. When the three and a half most intense minutes of Bedrock's "Heaven Scent" function as the third track on the first disc -- supposedly the warm-up disc -- it's pretty apparent that crafting an evocative journey through numerous mood-inducing motifs isn't a top priority. Still, there are plenty of popular trance anthems here, reason enough for many to relish this album: Paul van Dyk's "Avenue," Planet Perfecto's "Bullet in the Gun," System F's "Out of the Blue." But in the end, anyone looking for a sense of motif, composition, or even a bit of insight on the part of the unaccredited DJ should go elsewhere; this album is little more than a computer edited compilation with little interest in crafting a noteworthy set.
