Hed Kandi – The Mix 50

Share now:

Hed Kandi present ‘The Mix 50,’ a pivotal release in Kandi history with 3 CDs dripping with the label’s distinctive sound, from the classic to the upfront – all grown up and sexier than ever.

The dazzling Disco Heaven girls guide us through CD1, kicking off with the effervescent sunshine of Ministers De La Funk’s ‘Believe’ featuring Jocelyn Brown, next up the girls slink straight towards the soothing disco funk of ‘To Be In Love’ by Masters At Work featuring India before ending the night with Soulsearchers’ ‘Can’t Get Enough.’

Twisted Disco ushers us into Kandi’s darker confines, kicking off with the filtered electro of Mylo’s summer smash ‘Drop The Pressure’ and the urgent synth taps of Rui Da Silva’s ‘Touch Me’ before Timo Maas plunges us into the dense ebb of ‘To Get Down.’

The final offering takes a journey Back To Love, Sterling Void & Paris Brightledge’s ‘It’s Alright’ delivers a dose of early acid house before Clivilles & Cole drop their soulful classic ‘A Deeper Love.’  The tough stylings of Adamski’s ‘Killer’ round off the retrospective.

“With the release of ‘The Mix 50,’ Hed Kandi celebrates this milestone with quite simply a collection of the very finest Hed Kandi tracks ever,” says label boss Horace McDonald. “It’s all on one package, with nothing missing. This is the definitive album of Hed Kandi and it’s as good as it gets.”

Since its inception in 1999, Hed Kandi has become a lifestyle concept incorporating a record label, a radio show, international club nights and a graphic style that stimulates all the senses. Unique and distinctive, Hed Kandi has become a staple of quality, a benchmark by which all compilations are judged. A sophisticated addition to any CD collection, Hed Kandi is music for anyone who has lost themselves on a dance floor.

Catering to a generation of grown up clubbers and music lovers, Hed Kandi has become widely recognized for its series of eclectic compilation albums delivering serious music with a sense of humour. Their efforts and style were acknowledged in 2001 when the label was awarded a coveted Dance Star Award.
Over the years Hed Kandi has become the soundtrack to a lifestyle, with Nu Cool, Deeper, Back to Love, Winter Chill, Disco Kandi and Beach House all offering everything from chill-out to deep house, US garage to hip hop and jazz groove to club classics.
