AllMusic Review by

Six years of remake, remix, and re-thought-out deep house from King Britt's Scuba alter ego gets a timely and welcome repackaging from Om, bringing together 12 of his most impressive works. Though forever warping past any easy-to-pinpoint concept, the moniker belies a certain watery synth quality with the deep house of the opening "Ski Oakenfull" cut and a wonderfully drifting take of 4 Hero's "9x9," the Hidden Treasures of the title a nod to the rarity of some of the cuts on offer here. Maximum Style's sought-after take on "Wake Up" and the liquid gospel house of "Heavenly" contrast nicely against "If I Lost You," where King Britt's effervescent Rhodes gets friendly with Mishelle Shaprow's vocal.
