Label: Virgin/EMI
Stats: 1999; 18 tracks

Johannesburg's 206 posse return to the table with their second compilation featuring a collection of banging breakbeat-styled beats. The mixing is handled competently by resident DJ Myles with a few forgivable flaws. The choice of tracks captures the feel of the club with Les Rhythmes Digitales, Fatboy Slim and Propellerheads standing out and overshadowing a couple of cheesy filler tracks. 18 Heavyweight Beats may not appeal to the average commercial dance music freak, but it provides a refreshing alternative to the monotony of many other local club compilations. [7.5/10]
