Review: Following well-regarded outings on Kolour, Dikso and House of Disko, Daniel Solar pops up on Nervous Records offshoot Nurvous. With its cutesy vocal, bouncy nu-disco synths, old skool feel and rubbery synth bass, "I Will Have You" sounds like a hit in the making. In some ways, it's quite refreshing that Solar has decided to go down this path; most people in his position would be making their productions deeper, not more accessible. Either way, it's a fun record that neatly joins the dots between old skool house, deep house and sparkling nu-disco.

Review: The consistently impressive Dikso imprint returns with label stalwart Daniel Solar taking the reigns of this four track EP. The uptempo vibe, burning chords and occasional acid squiggles on "A Walk In The Park" make it primed for immediate club play, while "Can You Really Know?" featuring Aniya Ouu bumps hard at a slower, sultrier pace. You'll also find two remixes from a couple of Juno's favourite producers - The Revenge and Pional - with the former taking "A Walk In The Park" into deeper, Theo Parrish-esque shuffle territory, while the latter tweaks the same track into a sweetly melodic roller. Quality from start to finish here!

Review: In some ways, "Lamb" by Lula Circus is like many modern house tracks. It starts off as a stripped back groove, hiccupping and stuttering in reference to its mnml heritage, but it soon veers into a disco filtered breakdown. What sets it apart however are the subtleties, like the juddering vocal snippets and their infectious combination with the disco riffs. "Rainy Days" on the other hand sounds charmingly out of time with current trends. Like a techier version of Kenny Hawkes's classic "Sleaze Walking", its walking bassline, live-sounding groove and dramatic strings shine brightly over the monochrome horizon - and when the 'if the sun don't rise tomorrow' refrain kicks in, it feels like the late 90s never ended!

Review: The Dikso imprint doffs their collective cap at the current amalgamation of disco and house with a quartet of floor burners on the seventh edition of the Super Sound series, making for a fine 10th release from the label! Mother Recordings boss Nhan Solo opens proceedings with "Supervisor", a finely crafted gem that starts off a bit disco (check that slap bass line son) before mutating into some kind of post Hot Creations house behemoth while you are busy trying to figure out what that vocal sample says. Alongside this Dikso head Daniel Solar teams up with rising talent Huxley and the impressively voiced Miss Bee for "Dancing With Your Heart" which has more than a touch of vintage Moloko about it - do check! Up next Mexican duo Balcazar & Sordo bring the chunky disco/house vibes with the ever present soar of "Stay With Me" while Satin Jackets drops the most overt disco moment on "One More Chance" which is owned by the glistening vocals from Natalie Conway.

Review: It's good to see the Dikso label make an appearance on digital download. So far, they've impressed on vinyl with a series of killer 12" singles full of slinky, next-level disco/house edit fusions. This digital edition of the second Super Sound Single release features must-have cuts from Nicholas and Daniel Solar. The former's "Without You" is one of his best moments to date, offering a long but not so loopy midtempo disco-soul jam that's just made for summer. Solar's "Fake It", meanwhile, builds a killer disco/house groove around a spectacularly rubbery bassline and some slick jazz-funk guitars. Killer stuff.

Review: One year in and the 'House of Disco' label continues to move from strength to strength. The label, spawned from a blog to which is shares it's name, has risen majestically to the top of an ever increasing pile of disco imprints. There is no real mystery surrounding its success, only the best productions and edits find their way onto the labels releases, carefully hand picked with due care and attention. The digital age has made owning a label no longer the pastime of millionaire playboys with a penchant for cylindrical percussive instruments, any Tom, Dick & Harry can claim to own a label these days, and often all three do... it would be churlish to suggest there are no decent digital only imprints out there, a couple of labels spring to mind, however, the discerning jock understands that any label willing to take the time, effort and risk of pressing up some vinyl must really believe in what they are doing and have a deep understanding of the scene's DJs and fans. This, the fourth release on the label entitled 'Busy Tone EP' is a great example of the complimentary A&R which is a mainstay of the label. First up we have a slo-mo looper from Scottish producer (Ali) OOFT! The track respectfully uses a synth and vocal sample from disco group 'Maze', slowly building into a real crowd pleaser. Next up we have German duo Daniel Solar & Andi De Luxe, taking time out from running their own label (Dikso) to drop the string led dance floor bomb 'Seventh'. 'Debonair' makes his second outing on the 'House of Disco' this time turning in an impeccable rework of the Garage classic 'Just How Sweet is Your Love'. And last up we have loop master 'Late Nite Tuff Guy' who brings the EP to a chugging finale, amazing strings and a hypnotic beat make this one of the highlights of the EP. Collectively; this is a great package, individually; all the tracks are must haves.
