Very much up to scratch with the rest of the Hed Kandi releases. Stand out tracks are the bouncy remix of 'Over You', Jon Cutler's 'It's Yours' still sends tingles up my spine. The under exposed Mutiny add to the album with the amazing 'Secrets', 'Bel Amour' is still one of the best vocal house tracks of the year, and 'I Love Clubbers' screams to be danced to. In fact, the whole album's a floor filler. All the tunes mix very well...in fact I can't really fault it. If you like this, check out the rest of the Hed Kandi series and also check out and discover the joy that is Many Shades - The Real Sound Of Black Vinyl Records for more chunky funky house.

I was a late listener to the world of Hed Kandi, with Disco Kandi 3 being my first purchase of the well known collection. However the subsequent months has seen me become well and truly hooked! and I haven't missed a new release yet This devotion has become further enhanced with the release of Disco Kandi 4 which is yet another immaculate collection of the best uplifting Disco House and U.S. Garage. The tone of Cd 1 is set with the absolute riproaring "Stand Up" by Thunderpuss, which really cries out for maximum volume. But it only gets better with the belting "Its yours" defining one of those summer nights with your friends when you all just chill outside and enjoy the atmosphere. The Cd continues in this same vein, but reaches an almighty Disco climax with the Class A remix of "Streetlife", which in my opinion will have you all bopping no end wherever you listen to it, and then "Rise" brings CD to a beautiful end. CD2 starts off on a different tip to Cd1, with "You've got My Love" by Bastian reminiscent of a Daft Punk cut. However we're back on track with the worldwide smash from Roger Sanchez, giving Cd2 the Disco kickstart it needed. From then on the tunes give the Cd a different twist to Cd1 but still manages to be deserved of the superlatives I become accustomed to throw at Hed Kandi Cds. I know this may seem a biased view, but it only took me one Cd to become hooked, and I feel if you are new to the collection, this Cd will definitely have the same effect on you that Disco Kandi 3 had on me all those months ago.

This is another brilliant release from the much underated Hed-Kandi Label. Both cds are brilliantly complied- cd1 has a mixture of phunky vocal house, and summery latin music, which is perfect for the beach. Cd2 is mainly more mainstream music with a few familiar and favourite tracks. Forget all the countless summer 'Ibiza' compilations, get this!!!.

The Hed Kandi phenomenon continues unabated here with Disco Kandi 4 boogying in six months after #3 and less than two years after the original Disco Kandi. What makes the Disco series so fantastic is the commercial yet cool mix of favourite songs, guaranteeing strong sellers with good staying power.
From "Soul Heaven" to "Over you", all the guarranteed "I have to dance to this song" numbers are here.
The only real competition in an extremely crowded compilation market is from Defected, specifically their "Soul Heaven" offering, which has some overlap with Disco Kandi 4 in its content. But while strength of content is very strong in both cases, Kandi wins hands down for quality of presentation - The CDs and case are whimsical works of art in their own right, always raising a laugh or at the very least a wry smile.
If you like this you'll probably also like the Hed Kandi Summer Sampler 2001, a change from the usual "non-mixed" Kandi CDs with bits from various existing compilations including Disco Kandi 2 and 4 - Another marvel of packaging and with very cheap list price.
Congratulations Hed Kandi and Mark Doyle: Keep 'em coming and we'll keep discoing.

A sweet sound to the ears.

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

the disco kandi compilations brought a fresh cool sound when they started. but as time went by, they just kept sounding the same. friendly disco house tunes that, sound exactly like one another. formalic house patterns. nothing exciting. and while the sounds of house music has changed to an electro/synth pop style (like shakedown and david guetta, for example), disco kandi kept on bringing the same old sounding house. this cd gets 2 stars, and the extra star is for the 10th track on the first cd which is worth the whole cd. it's a wonderful samba house track, with some nice tribal battucada.
