5.0 out of 5 stars Unmixed Electro House at its best!, 17 Mar. 2007
This review is from: Hed Kandi - Twisted Disco (Audio CD)
As the previous reviewer mentionned, this cd is unmixed as with 90% of all other Kandi cd's. In fact i have all the mix cd's and i can only count 8 including the very illusive Swing City cd out of 68 releases.

If its mixed Electro your after then purchase Electrofied which is a Commercial cd, but i still feel that it has good tracks on it!

Back to this cd now and you might think that you've heard the songs on this release on the radio, but i doubt it very much. The only radio station in which you'd have heard these tracks on is MOS Radio as the mixes of these tracks are Hed Kandi ones!!

Hed Kandi are the same now as they've ever been. What i mean by this is that when they started out 7 years ago, virtually every single tune on each of their releases was unrecognised and new but was played in clubs around the country at Hed Kandi events.

Now-a-days most of the tunes on their releases are commercial, and people say Hed Kandi have gone down the realms of commercialism. They have and they haven't. If you go to a club for a night with Kandi, you will hear a wide variety of tracks and when those commercial songs come on the crowd go mad. What Hed Kandi are doing at the moment, is they are putting these floor fillers on the cd's as this is what most people want!! This is purely because of trend and for the last couple of years Hed Kandi have become more well known and Funky / Electro house music has stamped itself as the IN music at the moment!!

Where Hed Kandi manage to be different from the vast majority of other House labels (with the exception of Fierce Angel, Housexy and Defected which have the same idea as HK) is that they remix the original commercial tracks and add a bit of Kandi magic to them. And thats what they've done to virtually the entire cd here!! There are quite a few new songs on this double cd which is good as it gives variety.

Highlights on this cd for me are: "La Discotek", "Be Still", "Hypnotized", "Elektro" and "What Else Is There" to name a few!!

My favourite is "Hold You" by GusGus. It is a great disco track and could actually be on a Disco Kandi cd as its not as dark as most of the other tracks on this cd but still has a bit of filth somewhere in the mix!!

I honestly think that people should go to Hed Kandi events and see the true Kandi for themselves. You won't be able to experience the best of Kandi just from listening to their cd's!! Trust me..... I've got over 50 of their releases but i still feel that you can't beat the real thing!!

Pacha in London is phenominal for Kandi nights but i've heard from many people that the Honey Club in Brighton is the True Kandi venue. That's where i'll be going next.... Can't wait!!

Hi, ive got myself some cd decks and im starting doing a bit of dj'ing myself. I love this music and you say this cd is unmixed which is perfect for me. Are there a few of these hedkandi cd's which are unmixed?

Cheers.
Steve.
