AllMusic Review by

Resident Los Angeles DJ and Crystal Method remixer lurches around on a lot of glockenspiel trance which at least makes an effort amidst the progressive-friendly smog of southern California. Synchro's "Power On" is all fraught vocals and flangey roundabouts, but for some reason it works. Same with Taylor's own "Slide" -- probably thanks to a sense of Orbital muso leanings and some lanky charm this side of a beaming dim-wit still wearing surgical masks all over his head. Superficial, plastic -- like L.A. itself -- but United DJ's of America, Vol. 10 still shows that American dance music doesn't have to be as insipid as documentaries like Better Living Through Circuitry might indicate.
