Hedkandi is a UK-based record label, events and music brand. Its back catalogue includes both artist albums and dance music compilations.

History

A Record Label founded in 1999 at Jazz fm Radio Stations' Enterprise Division by Mark Doyle who proposed the initial idea and created the name, concept and track listings, Hedkandi was a stable mate to Jazz fm Records.[1] Its live events quickly gained popularity with a residency in Ibiza at el Divino managed by Paul Wilkins and by having its own specialist radio show on Jazz FM. In 2002, Hedkandi had gathered enough momentum from its Ibiza nights to launch a regular residency at Pacha in London.

The Hedkandi brand was supported by Team Kandi, which involved a core of Djs and brand ambassadors, and back office staff that delivered the international package of albums and events. Standing out from other club events ,Hedkandi strives on Glitzy and glamorous production as well as very high emphasis on partnering The Hedkandi musical sound with high production values and locations

In January 2006, Hedkandi was purchased by Ministry of Sound.[2]
