AllMusic Review by

Best known as one half of renowned electro-dance duo Kruder & Dorfmeister, Richard Dorfmeister has often been known to branch out with other collaborators, as evidenced by such releases as 2006's Grand Slam. Pitted against a pair of Austrian gentlemen who go by the name of Madrid de los Austrias (Heinz Tronigger, aka Don Zanuste, and a chap named Pogo), Grand Slam continues in the expected Dorfmeister vein of early 21st century club/dance music. Repetition and dance beats are the main ingredients here, but unlike brain-numbing all-instrumental electronic dance tracks that seem to have ruled most dance clubs for years by now, vocals are a most welcomed addition to the proceedings. You'll be hard-pressed not to start doing your best Rerun/Fred Berry impersonation when hearing such uptempo dance ditties as "Boogie No More," "Spanish Grease," and "Make Dis Real."
