DIKSOF 018 - Daso - Cosmic Ride EP [incl. Daniel Solar & Andi de Luxe Remix]

Dikso welcomes their Berlin mate Daso who comes along with a fleecy and fluffy EP full of pure disco trance from outer space.

2014's final spurt... Just in time for christmas Dikso is proud to present their first EP from Daso. Well known for his releases on Connaisseur Recordings and Oliver Koletzki's Stil Vor Talent imprint he was searching for a homebase to show the disco aspect in his work which directly led him to Dikso.

Combining classic trance elements with disco drumming and a slight cosmic atmosphere Daso created the perfect EP to get into the long dark winter months. The musical equivalent to the northern lights that enlight and entertain until the sun comes back.

Meet the Balconys...

For some time now the combined forces of Mark Caramelli and Paul Hargreaves have been causing quite a stir under their guise, Death on the Balcony. Their style fuses a range of influences from Disco & Deep House through to House & Deep Techno depending on the time, space and environment. Years of dedicated musical passion and an appreciation of numerous genres have lead to their sound becoming perfected and receiving popularity across the board...

Death on the Balcony’s release schedule is continually active with DOTB releasing & remixing with the likes of Culprit LA, Pets Recordings, Silver Network, Illusion Recordings, Akbal Music, Airdrop, Hissy Fit & Join The Dots. Whether it’s disco inflected fuel or house rhythms, these eclectically deft producers will juxtapose anything they lay their hands upon, mixing the beat of the drum with the melodic buzz of a hazy brain.

As one of the UK’s finest up and coming acts Death on the Balcony will be delivering more productions, remixes and playing world wide gigs as their range of musicality continues to evolve and they deliver a unique, well-timed narrative of the best sounds around.

Yowzah!!! #08 in Juno's Deep House charts, #12 in the Disco section and #26 overall plus millions of sweet mails and comments from all over the world. Support comes from Tensnake, Robert Ownes, Kruse & Nuernberg, Mark Farina, Animal Trainer, Larse, Bonar Bradberry and Jay West (to name a few), Doctor Dru sent a kiss, Nhan Solo a heart and DJ Sneak didn't like it at all.

Speaking of charts (thee subject): This is what the Balconys playing this spring... DOTB Spring Chart on Beatport
