AllMusic Review by

Easily as impressive a DJ team as they are at production and remixing, Deep Dish trips through futurist house and R&B with the double-disc mix collection Yoshiesque. From the interstellar ambience of the set opener "Dancing in Outer Space" by Atmosfear (remixed by Masters at Work), the deep-groove techno on Ian Pooley's mix of Chaser's "Tall Stories," and the smashing hi-NRG house of their own "Mohammad Is Jesus" to the dizzying trance of S.O.L.'s "Quantensprung" into Underworld's "Jumbo," Deep Dish presents so many attractive angles on electronic dance that boredom -- always relevant when listening to a two-and-a-half-hour mix album on headphones or in the car -- becomes practically a dead issue. The duo balances faceless house producers with more rock-friendly groups like Fluke and Lo-Fidelity Allstars, and they even throw in a couple of oldies hits (a Quivver remix of Culture Club's "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me" and the Armand Van Helden remix of War's "Slippin' into Darkness"). Even while Deep Dish's own production album, Junk Science, occasionally failed to deliver on the promise of perhaps the best track-by-track producers in house music, Yoshiesque proves they may be the best mixers as well.
