Overview

If Hed Kandi's now ubiquitous club compilations leave any sort of lasting legacy, it will probably be the highly stylized deco-femmes that adorn the cover of each release. The music on these compilations, however, has often been limited to the whims of popular house music culture, which means that thoughtful programming is often overridden by big hit after big hit. In that sense, Hed Kandi: Disco Kandi 05.02 is not much different from any other Hed Kandi release, except to say that the past year had some cuts that were clever as well as catchy. Satisfying for house-heads while satiating the popular masses. Disc One is the more light-hearted of the two. Dimitri from Paris and Mousse T give it a fresh old-school rap flava with their remix of T-Ski Valley's "Catch the Beat," while newcomers the Latin Hustlers look back even farther into the '70s with a freestyle carnival of horns and congas on "So Much Better At Bad." Disc Two is the more intense of the pair with Mousse T remixing both Shakedown's "At Night" and his own "Fire" into some serious late-night bass twisters. The uber-prolific Hakan Lidbo takes a shot at all-girl double-dutch rap with 2MHz on "Bad Girls Go to Hell." But the sampling dates back even farther with Layo & Bushwacka grabbing Nina Simone's sultry voice for their super-hit "Love Story." But for sheer brazenness, no one beats Space Cowboy and their Daft Punk-on-acid cover of Prince's "I Would Die 4 U" that runs every signature French disco filter all at once, resulting in the much sought after sanity overload. There is nothing entirely satisfying about listening to Hed Kandi's far too obvious approach to marketing, but at the same time, they do pull in the cuts that please the dancefloor.
