Beach House 2011
Last year Beach House 2010 was nominated for Best Compilation at the International Dance Music Awards, and ended up being Hed Kandi’s biggest-selling title. So all eyes were on this year’s installment to see if they could top it. In a series that has, at certain points over the last few years, become more of a brand than a collection of individual and standout tracks, 2011’s chapter of Beach House holds up to the original installments championed by Hed Kandi founder Mark Doyle. A blend of new tracks in the trademark “sundrenched” deep, beachy House sound and fresh remixes of classics, BH 2011 is guaranteed to brighten any pool party or day at the beach. The CD release is in a traditional triple-disc, unmixed format; the digital release also includes all three discs as continuous mixed sets.
