AllMusic Review by

Several volumes in this French, promo-only series should be snapped up whenever they're seen. For fans of cutting-edge dance music and left-of-center indie, they serve a function similar to that of the samplers that come with CMJ magazine, providing up-to-date selections of what keen club DJs spin. The value of the average volume in the series is considerably high since many of the tracks are available on vinyl only. This third volume isn't one of the best in the series, but it does show how deep the compilers are willing to go for the goods. Underground Detroit house producer Theo Parrish contributes "Children of the Drum"; other featured tracks include E-Dancer's "World of Deep," Sukia's "Barry Super Macho (Dust Brothers Remix)," and Pressure Drop's "My Friend."
