The third volume in Urb magazine's series charting the growth and expansion of electronica adds tracks from a few sources dance fans are unfamiliar with. Next to constantly anthologized artists like Moby, Underworld, and Orbital are appearances from Method Man, the Latin rap band Ozomatli, Florida breaksman DJ Icey, and Asian Dub Foundation. Given such a wide range of sounds on one album, Urbal Beats, Vol. 3 works quite well for veteran dance fans as well as beginners struggling to find a foothold in an often confusing scene.
