Since its inception in the early 1970s, disco has been the most derided form of dance music, dismissed by intellectuals, snobs and tastemakers as lightweight dancefloor pap. But mystifyingly, the modern party tunes that fill out Disco-Kandi 3 prove that while its critics are legion, the genre of disco has seldom been in ruder health. Thanks, perhaps, to the huge resurgence of the artform in Europe; a fair proportion of Disco Kandi 3 is comprised of fresh tracks, imported direct from the continent--in the sleevenotes, Hed Kandi compiler Mark Doyle recalls hearing the uplifting "Sugartown" by Dutch producer Hakan Lidbos in a club in Amsterdam, and decided it had to be on the compilation. Doyle's favourite labels loom fairly large--Defected Records register with six tracks, most notably, the gorgeous, soulful disco epiphany of First Choice's "The Player" and the cackling Latin rattle of Loletta Holloway's "Dreamin'". Where previous Disco-Kandi compilations offered something of a wind-down, though, it seems that here, Doyle's having too much fun; the second disc turns up the heat with Alan Braxe & Fred Falke's Ibiza classic "Intro", and by the close, he's dropping classics such as Sonz Of Soul's "Race Of Survival" into the mix. Lightweight dancefloor pap? Hardly--Disco Kandi 3 is the sound of hardcore dancefloor hedonism, and if the snobs can't handle that, it's their loss. -- Louis Pattison
