AllMusic Review by

Within only a handful of its Playin' Out compilations, Fuego quickly established itself as a purveyor of the finest albums. This mix follows selections from Faze Action and Organic Audio with a set from respected London DJ/producer Jim Robbins (aka, occasional Talkin Loud artist Raw Deal). Robbins' selection echoes the upbeat eclecticism of his Sanctuary hoedown in London's Soho, as far as can be from the slew of Ibiza compilations clogging the shelves, taking in all aspects of contemporary soul and funk-flecked house in 14 lively tracks of summer madness where anthemic vocals and slapped basslines appear in abundance.
