Dikso Records 003 - Super Sound Single Volume 3 ***updated***

Fresh meat we have, fresh music from fresh artists on a fresh and new Dikso vinyl only release, Dikso number three. We are so proud to bring you a new track from Soundcloud superhero James Johnston, new stuff from Argentina's Toomy Disco who has just hit the Beatport charts with his first artist album release, and we have the first vinyl release ever for a young and very talented guy from Australia, thee disco nation, welcome Andy Hart from Melbourne.

A1: Toomy Disco - Blues City

Toomy had the blues and created a wonderful and epic rework of an outstanding soul classic from the early 70s. Very strong Dikso opener produced by an even more talented guy from Argentina.

A2: Daniel Solar - Way Back Home

He is at least 50% of Dikso. After an outstanding release on the mighty Sleazy Beats label he is way back home with some slowmo disco action at its best. Driving beats, lovely chords and vocal snippets, and we all love the laser coming in at the middle.

B1: James Johnston - Give Me A Shock

Soundcloud superstar James Johnston, well known for his unbelievable Bill Withers rework "She's Gone", sent us this chord driven slow motion banger that is building and building and building and building and when this crazy synth hook is in, your last synapses will be opened up for sure. Be prepared for the shock.

B2: Andy Hart - Keep On

To complete our third Dikso journey we have this so relaxing piece of disco, working on floors and sofas, in your mind as well as on your lovely bum. Andy Hart, the man behind all this, is another promising talent from the Disco nation Australia. We are sure that this won't be his last visit on planet Dikso.

DiKSO Edit 11 - Marc Poppcke - You'll Never Change A Diva

He is back, Marc Poppcke is back... A good friend, fellow DJ and definitely the midwife for this blog and stuff. It's number eleven and a little bit different, a ham of an edit. Uptempo, driving and catchy and a mash up as well.

Based on the 1981 #1 US Dance Charts smasher "Change - Paradise", Marc added a completly different vocal from Adeva's 1988 debut single "In And Out Of My Life" and some effects for full dancefloor pleasure.

Marc Poppcke is very busy these days. He started the promising "Soulfooled" label together with Berlin based Alex Niggemann and the Superlounge guys from Düsseldorf, is finishing his master degree at the Berlin University Of Arts and he always works on new productions and remixes. Have a look on his soundcloud page and listen to his brilliant remix for C-Rock and Brett Johnson. We are very happy about this wonderful edit that Marc has tested already in different clubs over the last months. Chicks dig it...!
