AllMusic Review by

The 2000 edition for mixmaster Richard "Humpty" Vission's blueprint of hyperactive house sees the DJ racing through over 50 tracks in an hour flat, perfect for keeping the attention of everyone on the dancefloor and positively dizzying if you're playing at home. With the skills, pace, and deft timing of a hip-hop turntablist, Vission fuses the organic elements of house's roots (extroverted diva vocals, power-of-dance positivity, disco basslines) with the increasingly frenetic hardcore/trance of the '90s (pounding metallic effects, raging vocal samples). After hitting a few highlights early on (with Loop 303's "Loop 303" and his own "Everybody's Free"), Vission detours through harder techno (tracks from DJ Bam Bam, Frankie Bones, and DJ Hyperactive) before peaking exactly halfway through with the outboard hardcore jungle of Robot Man's "Robot Man" and a remix of N.W.A.'s "Dope Man." Vission also manages to break out a few house classics, including Ralphi Rosario's "You Used to Hold Me," the Masters at Work production "Love and Happiness" by River Ocean, and Armand Van Helden's "U Don't Know Me."
