5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, stunning music, 27 Jun. 2007
This review is from: One-Winged Angel (Audio CD)
Believe it or not, I was recommended this by a younger friend of mine that gives me hope that not all 18 year olds are gangstas who only listen to hip hop.

This beautifully-harmonied female choral work with minimal accompaniment is choral music with a contemporary feel; some of which could make it onto works like Angels Fall (Hed Kandi).

Very chilled-out, with some dance bits in there (not overly sure about those bits though).

Still, a very good album and highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hed Kandi's grown up . . ., 27 Jun. 2007
This review is from: Angels Fall (Audio CD)
It is very rare for me to like an album on first listen, but this is outstanding. Hed Kandi is known for its beach house, funky house and disco house; something it has done very well, catering for the twenty- and thirty-something well-heeled trendy set. I have traditionally liked all of their produce (with the exception of the Back to Love stuff, which is pants).

With this ablum, though, there is a marked detraction from type. It's very downtempo, minimal accompaniment (often just a piano or acoustic guitar with a subtle bassline) and could be described as "Hed Kandi Unplugged" I suppose. With a hint of old-school Cafe del Mar, before that went down the commercial toilet. But sounds more "grown up", if that's the right term, than the other chill-out series - I'd actually buy it for my mum as well as for myself and not feel rediculous doing so.

To conclude: if you like grown-up downtempo chill stuff then buy this box set. It's only £15 and you get three most excellent CDs.
