AllMusic Review by

An awkwardly titled compilation from Ministry of Sound, this two-disc, DJ-mixed set puts a spotlight on the United Kingdom’s MCs as they’ve appeared on popular grime, garage rap, and straight-up dance-pop songs. Most of these selections were heard across 2009 and early 2010, highlighted by Tinie Tempah's “Pass Out,” Dizzee Rascal's “Bonkers,” Professor Green's “I Need You Tonight,” Roll Deep's “Good Times,” Chipmunk’s “Chip Diddy Chip,” and Example’s “Kickstarts.” The mixing is not flawless, but the listener gets the majority of each track -- as usual for Ministry of Sound, the spotlight is on the songs, not the mixing, though they do keep it moving here.
