AllMusic Review by

Nick Warren and Danny Howells -- both previously featured in the Global Underground series -- each mix a disc on this entry into the similar Renaissance series. And, as you might presume, these mixes are indeed awfully similar to these DJs' previous Global Underground efforts -- nothing but the latest batch of progressive house tracks. Both sets are dark and ominous, only the occasional female vocal shedding any light on these monolithic mixes. This is the sound of progressive house circa 2001. Occasional tracks like Ashley Beedle's Mahavishnu Vocal Mix of Bent's "Always" and Deep Dish's remix of iio's "Rapture" are uplifting moments, but for the most part, they are just brief shimmers of light in otherwise dark and disorienting sets by Warren and Howells.
