AllMusic Review by

The first volume in a special Moonshine series inspired by the hotspot-trotting Global Underground mix label and developed by Coxy himself, Mixed Live was recorded at "Crobar" in Chicago (and released just two months later). With fully three-quarters of the available channels used to record audience reaction to his set, everybody's favorite DJ mashed it up to his heart's content, and the microphones dutifully recorded every scream from the crowd as he worked through peaks like the tribal funk of Andrew McLoughlin's "Love Story" and Aphrohead's insane party anthem "Cry Baby." A breathtaking balance of hard dancefloor techno and more soulful house (Cox was undoubtedly inspired by playing in the Windy City), Mixed Live is the best mix album Carl Cox has yet recorded.
