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. Derrick Carter's "Theme From the Blue Cucaracha," Smith & Mighty's "I Don't Know," Luke Slater's "Purely," and Midfield General's "Devil in Sports Casual" are featured on the sixth disc in the series. This isn't one of the best installments, but it's worth picking up if found cheap.
