Sushi's freshly packaged without Kandi's seasoning
on 4 March 2002
Being a fan of the Hed Kandi series especially the Chill out division , I really looked forward to the new Hed Kandi spin off label Stereo Sushi's debut. For Stereo Sushi described as soulful , lounge house, I suppose the nearest this can be compared to in the Hed Kandi series is the Beach House CD,s, which featured ,jazzier house numbers. Stereo Sushi I found a quite dull collection of repetitive mid to up tempo pounding intro beats and I just found the track selection quite poor, uninspiring and dull house dance music, the sound worn out nothing new, it did nothing for me and I found it hard to believe that this collection was compiled by Mark Doyles out fit that brought out the excellant dark house compilation Deeper last winter , the first rate party album Nu cool 3 and an outstanding chillout series. The album offers a few highs in Matthias Heilbron, Physics, Warm , Teifswartz, Dido's club remix and Stephanie Cook for my choices. Unfortunately the Japanese comic book style packaging which is impressive and worth 10 stars is as far as this Cd went for me the albums content was no where near to Kandi's excellance and it's just as well it's on a new label, if you want to sample the real sound of Kandi,s dance beats try Deeper or Nu Cool 3 and 4.I don't think I'll be sampling any more helpings from this new label I'll stick to Hed Kandi.
