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.
