Having previously blurred the boundaries between disco and house, Daniel Solar returns to Dikso with his most "house" release yet. With its big pianos, relentless synth bassline, bubbling electronics and early Strictly Rhythm grooves, "Someday" sounds like a ready-made peaktime anthem. Kruse and Nuremberg go a little deeper on their rework, but retain the original's old school air of abandon. Steve Downes and Mario Aureo lend a hand on "I Do Believe", a warm deep house vocal cut that has just enough rough hustle to impress. Aureo also provides a pared-down remix that sounds like it was tailor-made for igniting parties in sweaty basements at 4am (deep house finger point at the ready, kids). Finally, "Cookie Dough" sees Solar return to his disco roots with a Soundstream style cut-up of Brenda Taylor's "You Can't Have Your Cake & Eat It Too"). Arguably, it's the EP's strongest moment.
