AllMusic Review by

Like the lengthy Nova Tunes series, the Test series is put together by France's Radio Nova. This series is even more reliable than Nova Tunes, cherry-picking a healthy number of excellent tracks that would otherwise be owned only by with-it DJs who hunt down all of the 12" releases. Dance music can be so specialized, but these sets are quite varied, ranging from the spluttered beats and ornate arrangements of broken beat to the more minimal-minded microhouse. Wild cards from the world of hip-hop are occasionally sprinkled in, too. Test Four's highlights include Contriva's "Stuck (Superpitcher Remix)," Ana Rago's "You're God (I:Cube Remix)," ESG's "Dance," and Slow Supreme's "Granada."
