The pitfall of Stereo Sushi is undoubtedly its packaging. One look at its visions of anime and J-pop and a sensory overdose courtesy of too much sugar immediately comes to mind. No doubt many anime or manga fans have purchased this series, only to be let down by its inner contents. However, those familiar with the Hed Kandi label will know that no matter what's on the cover, the inside will be chock-full of deep house, filtered disco-house, and a wee bit of progressive house, providing the ideal soundtrack for getting ready for a big night out at the clubs. Of course, this seventh edition plays it safe and sticks to the blueprint, and once again pulls it off with ease. Contributions from Masters at Work (featuring soul diva Patti Austin) and Bah Samba lead the charge this time around.
