Delivery time: Non-stock item, 3-6 working days
As the old adage goes, you always hurt the ones you love... Destroy The Disco sees Hed Kandi take its most treasured possession, Disco, and sabotage it to within an inch of recognition! This brand new compilation is all about the deconstruction of the traditional disco sound - here it's been cut-up, filtered, dirtily dub-ified in places, bolstered by big bomb-blast basslines, re-packaged and re-served as something twitchier, edgier and shockingly filthy. This is the sound that shook the foundations of festivals over the summer; this is the demolition of disco, and the filthiest album Hed Kandi has ever put together!
CD1 is a round-up of big, festival-friendly tracks, featuring big name artists regularly gracing the likes of Annie Mac's Mash Up playlist: AC Slater's Just Got Jacked (Jack Beats Remix) kicks things off with a massive wobbly bass frenzy. Following hot on the heels of that hugeness comes a track that really needs no introduction - Armand Van Helden & A-Track presents Duck Sauce - aNYway - the ‘Stardust' of 2009. Calvin Harris's I'm Not Alone gets an insane anthemic rework from Japan's Taku Takahashi. Following the huge success of ‘Exceeder', Dutch duo Mason are back with Corrected, featuring not one but two special guests - Run DMC's Darryl ‘DMC' McDaniels and Sam Sparro. Alex Metric's remix of Bloc Party's One More Chance has been a mainstay on Hed Kandi's dancefloors of late, and leads us epically onto Herve's awesome refix of monster track MARS by Fake Blood, with a demonic bottom end and old rave-style synths masterfully thrown into the mix. Following that onslaught, fittingly, the last track is Prodigy's Take Me To The Hospital.
CD2 offers more for the real heads of this scene but still packs real artist punch: A-Trak's take on Sebastien Tellier's Kilometer add a dash of synth sexiness whilst Joachim Gerraud's cuts up Basement Jaxx & Sam Sparro's Feelings Gone to choppy perfection. Homegrown gems from Hed Kandi HQ include an exclusive mix of ‘90s banger Double 99 Rip Groove reworked by HK's very own DJ/Producer talents Dean Rigg and Carl Hanaghan, and Young Punx's bespoke Destroy The Disco mix of Ready For The Fight. Fatboy Slim's Star 69 has been reclaiming dancefloors thanks to Rogue Element's update, and there's His Majesty Andre's filter-heavy, cut-n-shut Peep Thong ode-to-Pete-Tong odyssey, heading us off into oblivion via an appearance from Riva Star and Sebastian Ingrosso's MGMT mash-up Kidsos having the final say.
Hed Kandi is reaching into the future with Destroy The Disco, and there's a distinct pitch shift in the musical direction. Alongside this, the album artwork introduces a new noir alter-ego comic-strip landscape where the (anti-)heroine journeys into a whole new territory of misadventures. The CD package even includes a bespoke pull-out comic strip drawn by Jason Brooks. Those who have pigeon-holed HK - beware!
