4.0 out of 5 stars
Can do better, 12 Oct 2004
Mark Doyle's label does it again. A real grower this one, but you've got to stick with listening through the the whole of the cd's and not put your favourites on repeat. I've only given it 4 stars because there are more fillers than, say world series - the last edition. The highlights are Saturated Soul's Got to release, which features Eddie Amador's touch and you just know it's going to be good. Also Chlorophilia Put a little love, the great Armand van Helden's My my my, and Funkstar Deluxe's When I think of you. There are other great track's like Feels so good which features the Jungle Brothers and Love the way you move by I-Jah stands out. It's after you get past the remixes of 'classic tracks' like Last night a dj saved my life and Basement Jaxx' Good luck that it starts to feel a bit padded.
Still head and shoulders above the 'Deechay Semmy' style of 'dance music' but Hed Kandi's cutting edge feels a little blunt and needs to sharpen up again. Try Shapeshifter's House Grooves for a slight change, but stick with this one, it's worth it.
