AllMusic Review by John Bush

An irresistible ride through hard house that brings back the spirit of pummeling DJ sessions on New York's Kiss-FM, Live in the Mix is a hard-hitting compilation of tracks from the three major labels helmed by Romanthony (Orange, World, Black Male), including five numbers from the man himself. Romanthony obviously knows these tracks well, from female-vocal productions for Nyree ("Dance With Me," "Good Times," "I Like It") to hip-house breakdowns from MC Gift ("Beatrock") to his own tracks. Live in the Mix peaks on Romanthony's own numbers, particularly the back-to-back anthems "Floorpiece" and "Under/Main." Proof positive why he's Daft Punk's favorite DJ.
