Hed Kandi delivers... again!
on 4 April 2005
The second major Kandi release this year - third if you count the single disc sampler - is a sumptuous banquet of deep, dark and dirrty house music. It's a smorgasbord of 3AM disco designed to deliver a smile to you face and a wiggle to your bum!
And, as with practically everything they do, the Hed Kandi team deliver again. There's quite a few tracks on here you'll already know if you're a fan of the scene, like Deep Dish's unparalled 'Flashdance' which smashed through the UK charts earlier this year. Highlights also include 'Buzz Junkie' by Tom Neville, the Laura Brannigan sampling 'Feel It' by Antoine Clamaran, and the latest offering from Tall Paul, 'Get It'. My personal favourite is the deeply strange 'Weird Therapy' with its monotone repeated mantra, 'It doesn't mean that I'm weird, it doesn't mean I need to be in therapy'. If you like the forthcoming single from the Bodyrockers - 'I Like The Way You Move' - you will love this track.
A word also for the sleeve design. Hed Kandi always, but always have the best cover artwork. Everything they do is crammed with such style! Now the prints are available not only on the Hed Kandi calendar (which has pride of place in my DJ box!) but also as prints from the website!
I love the disco-orientated output from Hed Kandi, but the Twisted Disco CDs are generally the best for consistent quality. If the other CDs are for the disco angels amongst you, the Twisted Disco CDs are for those that prefer to dress up as devils, and go around with a dirrty grin and a naughty twinkle in their eye!
