AllMusic Review by

House Blend is one of the worst titles imaginable for a series of compilations, especially since each volume in the series is a mix of house music. It's also not particularly wise to make some sort of connection to coffee -- a couple of the volumes require that kind of energy boost in order to remain alert while listening. The second volume, mixed by Dance Works!, moves quickly through 46 tracks, which are typically given just over a minute's worth of play time. So, if your aim is to obtain specific tracks included here, you'd be better off hunting down track-in-whole compilations, or mixes that allow each selection to breathe more. Producers like Darryl Martin ("Love Together"), DJ Hyperactive ("Don't Panic"), Louie Maldanado ("I Need You"), Ricky Garcia ("Aquarius"), and even Farley Jackmaster Funk ("Godfather") are featured, along with several of Dance Works!' own productions and remixes.
