London-based Death From The Balcony (AKA producers Mark Caramelli and Paul Hargreaves) is a good signing for Daniel Solar's Dikso label. Their style - fluid, melodic, deep and optimistic, with gentle hints of disco and boogie amongst the deep house rhythms - perfectly matches Dikso's atmospheric approach. There's more than a hint of late night soul about the chunky "Speak On The Subject", whose vintage US house grooves are peppered with hazy samples and twinkling pianos. "Make A Move", with its dreamy chords and Balearic melodies, is an altogether more warming affair, while "Heart for Rent" is simultaneously melancholic and deliciously upbeat. Daniel Solar remixes the latter track, adding some bouncy nu-disco flavour whilst retaining the original's picturesque qualities.
