From the Label
This Season's Most Stylish Club Anthems. 3CDs Compiled and Mixed by the man who started Hed Kandi, Mark Doyle.
The Collection will be is year's defining house compilation and heralds the launch of brand new label Tokyo Project. A major new venture from the team that originally brought you Hed Kandi, Tokyo Project is a brand with a passion for music and design at its core, focused on compilations, artist projects and a global club events business. The Collection is a triple album packed with exclusives such as Herd & Fitz 'Just Can't Get Enough', Dajae 'Brighter Days' and Isaac James 'Body 2 Body'. Alongside rarely compiled club anthems including The Killers 'Mr Brightside (Jacques Lu Cont Mix)'. Add to this hot hits from Jamiroquai, Gadjo, Scissor Sisters, Martin Solveig, Danni Minogue and Mylo vs Miami Sound Machine 'Doctor Pressure' and The Collection from Tokyo Project is sure to make a big splash when it lands.
"So, having flown the Hed Kandi nest, can Mr Doyle do it on his own. I would say that 9 out of 10 CD players, that expressed a preference, say that Tokyo Project is noto to be sneezed at! A good thumping number of tracks on this, some to swing your pants to and others to sit out and let others bop to. I would say that 3 discs is too many (I can easily cut it down to 2) but no doubt Mr D wanted the three to mirror recent HK offerings in its format. One star dropped because of the number of fair to middling tracks, in my view. I reserve judgement if Mr D will carry on taking my pennys off me (as Hed Kandi have well and truely blown it now, as far as I'm concerned)."
"The brain behind Hed Kandi deserve all my support to his new project. Highly recommended to all dance music lovers!!!"
"As a fan of Hed Kandi's releases up to the point when Mark left, I was eagerly awaiting something new on the horizon. I have to say that all three cd's are good, in different ways. Cd 3 is more rocky and bouncy than you'd expect it too be but it had me bopping!. I dare you not to put your hands in the air for 'Someday'. I found the other two cds grow on me paricularly cd 2 which now is a favorite whilst driving about. Really looking forward to whats up next."
"That this sheer volume and quantity of incredibly high quality dance music is actually being created - in our time - must surely rank as the 8th wonder of the world... if not the 1st...
What is even more astonishing (aside from his mixing skills) - is that somewhere in his psyche, Doyle must possess an inner certaintly and conviction - that it is possible for even better tracks, than the mind blowing ones he has already released on previous albums - to (1) exist - and (2) that the never ceasing flow of musical genius is destined to be coming his way.
If only it was so easy to attain the same level of belief in our worth and destiny...
Anyway: You poor soul... not being able to hear right now what is flowing into my being as I am listening to this album...
But hey: Maybe - if you're lucky - you'll manage to get hold of it within just a couple of days...!
[PS: If you have never experienced Mark Doyle's creations before - when you do - it would mean something to me to hear about the moment...]"
"This compilation is great and jam packed full of funky, melodic, and feel good house. Only just listened to the first 2 cd's but already have had a constant grin on my face and can't stop saying 'Wow excellent tune".
Compilations like this are rare. Typically you find that you buy a funky house album and the first few tracks of the CD are great but then they turn into a deep progressive and more trance-like style. Not that there is anything wrong with this, but sometimes you just can't beat some great funky tracks. The best tunes are at the beginning and often those DJ's selecting the tracks seem to give up later in the CD. This is not true of this compilation. Throughout the cd's the tracks keep on building and leave you thinking - surely it can't get any funkier.
Having been put off buying compilations for the last few years as I was finding I only end listening to a few of the first tracks, this CD is a great reassurance that there are DJ's out there who still value good, funky, and feel good house music. Well done guys this is a top compilation and one that will leave me smiling for hours.
If you like cool, funky house, without the hand in the air cheese of some compilations this is for you. Bring it on !"
