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. Audio Active's "Weed Specialist," Kid Loops' "The Microphone Fiend," Sofa Surfers' "Sofa Rockers (Richard Dorfmeister Mix)," and Paul Johnson's "Hit It Up" are included on this, one of the series' weakest volumes. Nothing too exciting here.
