Before the label grew "mainstream" and established its international profile, Hed Kandi released gritty compilations that took bolder chances. Oh sure, "Disco Kandi" and "Beach House" are fine, but "Nu Cool" was a different beast of a series that had a distinctly soulful edge. On its third volume, we get two unmixed discs of dance grooves compiled by Mark Doyle. The first disc, which is house, has funky nuggets like Masters at Work's "To Be In Love" (featuring the underrated India), Incognito's excellent "Nights Over Egypt" (which is also mixed by MAW), and Francois K's remix of "Sangue De Beiona." The second disc also has some house, but the set is overall dominated by mid-tempo funk cuts like Gwen McRae's "Funk it Up," Sylk 130's "The Reason," and Arthur Miles' retro-flavored "Helping Hand." But not everything clicks. Aretha Franklin's "Respect" is one song you can't mess with (unless your name is Adeva), and on this disc, we get a butchered remix that sets the classic single to a generic hip hop beat. Eww. Other than that, "Nu Cool" is a reminder of the edge Hed Kandi used to have. Too bad this series is now discontinued because it's one of their best.

A sweet sound to the ears.

Another great addition to the Hed Kandi collection. Hed Kandi never fails to impress.

An excellent compilation - for once you get to hear the tracks in their entirety (how they were meant to be listened), and is not segued into another. The variety of artists and different versions make for a terrific listen. The other compilations put out by HedKandi are also worth listening. Highly recommended.
