AllMusic Review by

Like most Hed Kandi collections with the word "Disco" in them, the main title is slightly misleading. Disco Heaven isn't disco in the purest sense of the word, rather an extension of the filter disco craze that swept house music in the late '90s that continued on into 2003. Semantic misnomer aside, this two-disc set features an uptempo look at the latest in fashionable disco house suitable for trendy restaurants, clubs, and boutiques. And as with all Hed Kandi releases, it's balanced with a lineup of recognizable artists and veritable newcomers to the electronic music world. Contributions from house legend Paul Johnson, deep jazz-house collective Incognito, and U.K. club stars Soulsearcher are among the selections highlighted.
