Super Sound Single Vol 6
Social Disco Club - "You Got To Stay" - (6:39) 122 BPM Hot
Kitano - "For The King" - (7:09) 114 BPM
Soho808 - "Turning Slow" (feat Lydia Caesar) - (6:05) 112 BPM
Review: Andi de Luxe and Daniel Solar's Berlin-based Dikso label serve up a V/A three-tracker here. Social Disco Club's 'You Got To Stay' gets the ball rolling, essentially a house cut centred around a killer looping M1 groove, but with a 70s-style chanted disco vocal towards the end. Melbourne lad Kitano's mid-paced 'For The King' similarly sits somewhere between deep house, disco and Balearica, while finally NYC duo Soho808 bring us 'Turning Slow', the most "authentic-sounding" cut of the three, which sits right on the disco/boogie cusp. The latter's the standout for yours truly, but 'You Got To Stay' is also pretty hard to resist.

Luv Me
Hurt & Pain - (9:32) 122 BPM
Higher Luv - (7:06) 122 BPM
I Wanna - (7:58) 122 BPM Hot
Review: Spoonerisms abound as Meddie Mercury (we chuckled, at least) drops some serious peak-time loop jams on Dikso. The Am$trad Billionaire member hits the ground running with the effortlessly sweet, filter-boasting disco-house giddiness of "Hurt & Pain", a peak-time bumper that recalls the Halcyon days of "French Touch" house. Elsewhere across the EP you get the heavily chopped, hot-stepping 80s soul-meets-deep house throb of "I Wanna" and "Higher Luv", a decidedly deeper, more bass-heavy take on the producer's rolling disco-house template. Disco purists might turn their noises up at the Glaswegian's peak-time jams, but the rest of us will be hammering them hard in DJ sets in the weeks and months ahead.

Lasse - (5:42) 119 BPM
That Is Why - (5:47) 122 BPM Hot
Review: Dikso Records is run by Andi de Luxe and Daniel Solar out of Berlin. Following up some great releases in recent times by Levantine, Hurlee and Sasha Anastasov, they've got a terrific new one coming at us right now courtesy of Erik Ellmann. The Leipzig based producer has appeared on imprints such as Poetry in Motion, EleFlight, BEEF and Large Music - so he has definitely got the right credentials. Lo-slung slo-mo disco for the late night awaits you on "Lasse" - beware because this one is infectious. This is followed by some some dusted-down deep house on the loopy tip as heard on "That Is Why" which will appeal to fans of Robsoul or Ondule.

The Sun Rising
Chorus - (5:54) 115 BPM Hot
Fairground - (4:55) 121 BPM
Review: Fresh from inspired outings on Smokin' Beat, Chopshop and About Disco, Oscar Levantine makes his bow on Daniel Solar and Andi De Luxe's ace Dikso imprint. Turn first to "Chorus", a filter-sporting mid-tempo disco-house jam whose heady grooves and mind-altering samples continue to rise, fall, build and rise again throughout the track's seductive six minutes. The Mexican producer ups the tempo considerably on "Fairground", a bolder and more percussively energetic affair rich in bounding, bouncy house drums, looped piano refrains, swirling chords and the kind of sweet, dewy-eyed female vocal samples that make you want to hug complete strangers while a hundred percent sober.

New Life EP
New Life (original mix) - (6:26) 120 BPM Hot
New Life (Freiboitar remix) - (6:47) 119 BPM
Old Friend (original mix) - (5:53) 120 BPM
Review: Over the past 28 months, Hurlee has showcased his wares on a variety of well-regarded labels, including Papa, Mood Funk and Frigo Vide. On this latest three-track missive, he's pitched up on Dikso in order to demonstrate his grasp of summery disco-house dynamics. The warm, tactile and bouncy "New Life" is our pick of the bunch. It not only boasts chunky drums and some suitably warm and melodious filtered loops, but also some suitably rush-inducing female vocal samples (taken not from a disco record, but what appears to be a superior '80s pop record). Freiboitar's slightly beefier and loopier remix is decent, too, but lacks the spine-tingling vocal breakdowns that mark out Hurlee's original version. The EP is completed by the cheery, horn-heavy disco-house bump of "Old Friend".

Future EP
Future (original mix) - (5:08) 120 BPM
Future (Daniel Solar remix) - (6:27) 118 BPM Hot
Never Again (original mix) - (5:29) 118 BPM
Review: The Dikso crew is rather enthusiastic about its latest signing, Italian Carmine Giuliano. In the sales notes accompanying this debut EP, they describe the Campania-based deep house producer as a "seriously talented guy". That praise is more than justified, with "Future" offering a near perfect balance of life-affirming chord progressions, filtered vocal samples and bustling, club-ready beats. "Never Again" sees the Italian producer tweak the same basic blueprint with similarly impressive results, as fluid piano lines, dreamy chords and cut-up vocal samples envelop a slightly jazzier deep house groove. Dikso label boss Daniel Solar provides the obligatory remix, delivering a wonderfully synth-heavy interpretation of "Future" that bristles with Balearic disco intent.

Get Me A Drink EP
Makin' The Magic (original mix) - (6:43) 115 BPM
Makin' The Magic (Roberto Rodriguez (Manolo) remix) - (5:48) 115 BPM
Cadillac Disco (original mix) - (6:49) 113 BPM Hot
Review: Disko's latest digital-only release is a meeting of musical minds. It features two groovy, musically rich disco-house collaborations co-produced by sometime Large Music contributor Paul Rudder and fast-rising talent Tete de la Course. While "Cadillac Disco" - a tasty fusion of rolling, bass-propelled grooves, wild flute solos, punchy horns and cheeky vocal samples - is rather good, it's opener "Makin' The Magic" that hits home hardest. A smooth but bumpin' dancefloor shuffler with bold organs, jangling acoustic guitars and eyes-closed vocal samples, it sounds like the kind of track that will easily slip into both house or disco sets. Roberto Rodriguez provides the obligatory remix, gently tugging the track further towards disco-tinged deep house territory.

Annapurna EP
Annapurna - (7:27) 120 BPM
Annapurna (Nicone remix) - (7:29) 120 BPM
Annapurna (Rayko remix) - (6:28) 120 BPM Hot
10 Vorne - (6:51) 99 BPM
Review: It looks like Jan Mir's time may have finally come. His career to date has been a stop-start affair, but the fact that this Dikso debut follows hot on the heels of a well-regarded EP on Ritter Butzke Studio suggests that he's finally building momentum. Lead track "Annapurna" blends elements of deep house, cosmic disco, and the kind of slow-burning epics that have become the hallmark of Floating Points, while "10 Vonne" is a superior slice is ultra-deep, pitched-down house (think Detroit Beatdown with occasional nu-disco synth lines, and you're close). Rayko and Nicone, who opts for a spacey, trance-like tech-house vibe, both remix "Annapura". The former's chunkier disco interpretation, complete with Nile Rodgers style guitar parts, is our pick of the pair.

Pushin' On EP
Pushin' On (Eli Escobar remix) - (7:27) 118 BPM Hot
Pushin' On (Vhyce remix) - (6:14) 118 BPM
Pushin' On - (6:54) 118 BPM
La Cupola - (5:52) 118 BPM
Played by: Discotron
Review: Daniel Solar's hook-up with longtime pal Andi De Luxe was one of the undoubted highlights of his 2015 debut full-length, Rubicon. Here, the superb original - an undulating, bright-eyed-and-bushy-tailed trip into deep house/disco fusion - is joined by two new remixes. Fast-rising production starlet Eli Escobar steps up first, dragging the track further into dreamy, U.S style deep house territory whilst retaining the original's deliciously elastic bassline. Vhyce sticks closer to the original, adding some well-placed filters for extra disco-house pleasure. There's also a rather tasty bonus cut in the shape of "La Cupola", where razor-sharp disco samples, sustained note strings and twinkling pianos ride an extra-percussive house groove.

Harlem Streets EP
Harlem Streets - (6:32) 120 BPM Hot
Call The Cops - (6:15) 119 BPM
Call The Cops (Claus Casper & Jean Philips remix) - (6:29) 119 BPM
Dear Mom - (6:47) 122 BPM
Review: The 23rd release on Daniel Solar's Dikso imprint comes from rising talent Freiboitar. The Cologne-based producer has previously contented himself with making straight-up house, but here showcases his skills with a bunch of disco samples, a set of filters, and some groovy house rhythms. There's plenty to enjoy throughout, from the loved-up positivity of "Harlem Streets", where filtered vocal hooks and horn lines cluster around a sun-kissed disco groove, to the heavyweight, low slung hustle of peak-time scorcher "Dear Mom". Eyes-closed, filter-disco shuffler "Call The Cops" also gets remixed by Chris Caspar and Jean Philips, who cannily emphasize the track's in-built positivity.

Drowning (Patryk Molinari Siren dub) - (7:02) 121 BPM
The Flow (Acid Kinski remix) - (7:16) 115 BPM Hot
Played by: Giom
Review: House man Daniel Solar made some big waves last year with his Rubicon album, released through his own Dikso label. Now we get to revisit some of its key tracks in remixed form. There are three tunes here that get respectively overhauled, the first up being "Times Of Science" which gets turned into a beautifully mournful and deep late night jam by Giom. Elsewhere we submerge even further down with the hypnotic linear grooves of "Drowning (Patrik Molinari's Siren Dub)". Finally we end on the trippy electroclash of Acid Kinski's revamp of "The Flow".

Review: And just like that, Daniel Solar drops an LP on his own Dikso! On Rubicon, the busy house producer goes for the midas touch, a closer inspection into the disco realms of the genre, and the guy comes out with a wide selection of elegant tunes for the midnight dance. With over ten tracks on offer, Solar explores all the possibilities a house album can offer, but if you want spoiler then think Chicago, Detroit, NY and even a bit of London!

Can't Get Away (original mix) - (5:54) 120 BPM
Can't Get Away (Daniel Solar & Andi De Luxe remix) - (6:24) 120 BPM
Review: Belgian upstart Vhyce follows up releases on Sweat It Out! and Club Sweat with this tasty four tracker featuring some sure fire main room house on the funky tip. The original of "Struggle" ticks all the boxes with its tough shuffling rhythm, rolling bass and sexy vocals. He gets in London legend and Reverso 68 main man Pete Herbert in for a remix who gives it a tremendous nu-disco makeover and is the real highlight on here. "Can't Get Away" is more on the soulful tech house tip that fans of Greg Fenton or D'julz would truly be all over! The remix of it by Berlin favourites Daniel Solar and Andi De Luxe is tight peak time tech house that fans of the Frankfurt/Mannheim sound will definitely dig!

As Cold As The See (original mix) - (6:50) 122 BPM
As Cold As The See (Luvless remix) - (6:46) 117 BPM
Played by: Vhyce
Review: Belgium's Vhyce has a reputation for always delivering high-end house productions and this latest for Dikso keeps up the good work. "Lies" is an ecstasy-drenched slab of uplifting, soulful house complete with shimmering, dreamy synths. The Larse remix takes the same tune down into some dark and sweaty basements for techy after-hours sleaze, while "As Cold As The See" comes up for air in a more upmarket cocktail bar for some housier action, also taken into loopy deep and soulful territory by Luvless.

Treat Me Right (original mix) - (8:32) 122 BPM
Review: It's approaching summer and it's time to give the party people what they want; floating beats, warms synths, holiday vibes and good times. Here, Death On The Balcony delver it all and more across these four-tracks, which is best heard "Soul Searching". Daso adds a funky synth line to their remix, and across the board it's more hi-fi than the original. "Synthetic Senses" is an energetic production made for the peak time, while "Treat Me Right" provides a perfect balance between deep and moody theme, to outright sultriness.

Cosmic Alone (original mix) - (6:24) 120 BPM Hot
Ride Tide (original mix) - (6:56) 120 BPM
Review: Apparently, deep house producer Daso - famed for his outings on Connaisseur Recordings and Still Von Talent - has been looking for an outlet to release the disco side of his work for some time. Here, he finally gets that chance with an EP of shimmering, melodious nu-disco chuggers on Dikso. Opener "Tide Waves" is particularly beautiful, with smothering strings, twinkling keys and bubbling electronics riding a sun-kissed Balearic disco groove. "Cosmic Alone" doffs a cap to Italo whislt retaining Daso's deft nu-disco touch, while standout "Ride Tide" is a Scandolearic disco gem with definite hints of Diskjokke, Blakbelt Andersen and Magnus International. Best of all, though, is Daniel Solar and Andi De Luxe's voluptuous synth-house rework of "Tide Waves".

Heart For Rent (original mix) - (8:04) 120 BPM
Heart For Rent (Daniel Solar remix) - (7:36) 120 BPM
Review: 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.

Cookie Dough (original mix) - (6:25) 115 BPM Hot
Review: 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.

Played by: Buzz Compass
Review: Daniel Solar's Dikso label is dedicated to a super slick Mediterranean disco house sound. This series has excelled in getting this approach heard and the latest instalment is no different. "Rhythm Of A Miracle" begins with a touch of diva-tinged, shimmering electro-house, before "Harmonic Flower" (by Dutch label regulars, Roberto Calzetta and Twin Soul) fuses electro-disco with piano house. EBO's "Still Running" is sleek and sultry hip-house (also given a loungey house makeover by Craig Hamilton), "So Right" goes back to the 70s for some looped funk and "Fairy Tale" ends this on a sunkissed Italo-disco high.

Review: Larse is a hard act to track down and although we don't know much about them, one thing we do know is that Larse is very good at getting backsides moving. This turbo-themed EP boasts 4 original deep body-disco cuts, the standouts being the sublime and totally glamorous "Hot" and the (possibly even better?) Adana Twins remix, which is indeed based around a twisting bassline. What's not to love?

Review: Dikso boss Daniel Solar presents this acclaimed label's 11th outing and its first of 2013: a three tracker from rising Dutch duo Roberto Calzetta and Remco Custers (aka Twin Soul, but with a name like that he didn't really need to change it). "Faith" is an infectious foray into the world of bouncy electro-house, not unlike Felix Da Housecat's collaborations with Tyrone Palmer or Harrison Crump. "Terra Cutter" is electro-disco with lashings of gorgeous synth-pop melodies and finally the instrumental "Walk On Us" wraps things up on a euphoric Italo-disco high.

Review: Re-working a smash hit such as 1994's "Rhythm Of The Night" from Corona (originally inspired by 1987's "Save Me" from Say When) is very brave indeed; and it's exactly what Roberto Rodriguez as Manolo has done with a little help from Daniel Solar and Andi De Luxe undertaking the remixes. Four versions of the newly titled "Night Rhythm" span the double sided vinyl with Manolo's mix tweaking the original with a sultrier bassline, disco guitar licks and pitched down vocal. Remixed by German duo Daniel Solar & Andi De Luxe, "Night Rhythm" is transformed again to expose another feel altogether via an electro tinged melody . Manolo's chilled out, groovy and deep Dub version is the pick of the bunch, and comes remixed by Daniel and Andi.

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!

Andi De Luxe - "Boobsie Collins" (original mix) - (7:07) 105 BPM Hot
Review: Dikso unveil their fifth EP of pan European disco meets house moments which commences in fine form with the ubiquitous Duff Disco. The London based producer is cranking up the heat and delivers a finely poised deep house bump on "I Won't Forget" with the glowing chords and delicate keys riding the muscular house groove with real aplomb. The surfeit of angelic cooing that gently ripples in the nether regions has the requisite emotive effect and the belated arrival of some twisting acid just demonstrates his variety. Alongside this, "The Music We Play" from We Play - the latest alias of two producers with far too many to list - gets a French House revision from Leeds based Mam which dovetails nicely with the loose boogie joint that is "So Much Fun" from German producer Larse. Dikso's own Andi De Luxe makes his belated label appearance to round off proceedings with the low slung beatdown sounds of "Boobsie Collins".

Soho808 - "Get Up Disco" (original mix) - (7:44) 106 BPM
Review: Daniel Solar's Dikso imprint hits the spot on their fourth Super Sound release, with some multi national discoid business that reaches from Germany to NYC via Glasgow. It's the latter that reps first with FOTO boss Ooft dropping the constantly building elastic analogue mid tempo tribalist bump of "Hit For Six", which sets the tone nice and deep. Burrowing further is "Make You Mine" from Autodeep and RoMorri which kind of sounds what you' expect the unholy union of Prince, R Kelly and flexing 303 minimalist bump to sound like. Solar meanwhile drops the insistent slick loopy disco house of "Baby's Tears" which aptly demonstrates the producer's talent for slicing up arrangements. Proceedings slow down for the closing gambit from New York producer Soho808 with the sultry twilight disco chug of "Get Up Disco" a gentle cacophony of late night strings, liquid melodies and heart melting vocal harmonies.

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.
