Just heard that Hed Kandi are releasing a second Nu Disco compilation on 25 January 2010.
Also, I read that Hed Kandi devoted the back room of their residency at Space in Ibiza in summer 2009 to Nu Disco. Crazy P, Aeroplane, and Greg Wilson all played apparently. I hadn’t realised the genre was so popular.
I am listening to the 8 track sampler of the new release. It starts with Simian Mobile Disco ft. Beth Ditto – Cruel Intentions which is one of those early in the night, having a few drinks introduction tracks.
The next notable track is Chromeo – Night By Night which has a great classic disco feel.
Subsequent tracks on the sampler suggest this is going to be a good warm-up compilation. Put it on while you are having a few drinks, relaxing in the bath and sprucing yourself up for a good night out and it will be just the right Hed Kandi accompaniment and musical introduction to your glamorous night on the town.
