Summer - Kandi Style!
on 17 August 2003
It's that time of year again - the sun is shining, and we're back off to Ibiza with the guys from Hed Kandi! This CD showcases the laid back grooves that we've been enjoying all summer, but without all the obvious hits from Ministry and Co which get old after about five minutes!
The CD starts with a great new track from the Ananda Project - Kiss Kiss, which sets both the form and tempo for the rest of the disk, which takes in the wonderful Solamente, by Light 4 Lines, and Surrender Your Love, by Jask. Other highlights include Safe, by the ever great Bonnie Bailey, and Moving On, by Miguel Migs.
There's no let up in quality when we reach disk 2, starting with the new one by the Kandi in house band Fac 15 - Blue Skies. The second track on this disk is by the ever popular Late Night Alumni, namely Empty Streets - this is without a doubt one of my favourite tracks on the CD, definately bound for future classic status. Another highlight of the disc is Tina Arena's vocal on The Roc Project's Never (Past Tense), which will be packing them in all year if there's any justice! :) We also get this year's wonderful Hard Soul Together track, which you've heard, even if you don't know it yet! The double pack draws to a close with the anthemic "Diamond Life", and with a very early Beach House track by A Man Called Adam.
If you're only even slightly into House music, you owe it to yourself to order this CD now, then get yourself a long drink and take in the sounds of the summer!
