DIKSO 008 - V/A - Super Sound Single Volume 6

The last Dikso... for 2011... with an intercontinental selection: Social Disco Club from Portugal, Kitano (aka Andy Hart) from Australia, soho808 feat. Lydia Caesar from NYC and Satin Jackets from Germany.

All tracks in one go...

DIKSO008 - Super Sound Single Volume 6 by Dikso Records

...and for the very first time with individual video art for every single track:

A1 / Social Disco Club – You Got To Stay / TT 06:40

Yes, Dikso got him. After they have laid the baits out for such a long time, Humberto Matias from Portugal went finally on it and delivers a totally weird style bastard that defines disco house in a complete new way: House is not adopting disco anymore, disco is adopting house. Welcome to the Social Disco Club.

- DJ Ionik from Traveller / Kojak Giant Sounds: "Personally the best Dikso 12" yet - a true 4-tracker with not a filler in sight. 'You Got To Stay' will blow people away "
- Huxley: "Social disco club is big! will definitely be playing that."
- ShirKhan from Exploited Records: "The Social Disco Club Track is always in my box. Interesting marriage of UK Garage Bass-Sounds meets Disco. Love it."

A2 / Kitano – For The King / TT 07:10

A track like a fairytale. Imagine a proud father that sends his most beautiful daughter to the king’s castle. Her whole life, her education, everything has been arranged for the king. Surely the speaker in Kitano’s track means something totally different but the story could have been so so nice… At least as nice as the track.

- Ali Ooft: "Feeling the Kitano joint the most, thats some lo-slung biz right there! Dikso keeps on rolling!"
- Chris Lattner: "For the king is awesome!!!!!! a real killer!"
- Homework: "Especially Kitano's For The King is our cup of tea. That special Dikso flavor, as always."

B1 / soho808 – Turning Slow feat. Lydia Caesar / TT 06:05

Bootsy, fasten your seatbelts, soho808 are back. After they led Dikso with “Get Up Disco” from Super Sound Single #4 to their first feature on a Fabric longplayer ever, here is the follow up. More funk than disco and lots more catchy than ever, Nathaniel and Dave teamed up with this so great chanteuse called Lydia Caesar and created a high potential dancefloor filler for all the ladies. The boys will follow.for sure!

- Daniel from Trickski: "Another great package once again!" and Yannick added: "Only burners!!!! you dikso guys are really growing stronger with every release! soho 808 is my fave here. thanks!"
- Larse: "Hard to pick a fav, think it's the soho808 jam!! Boogie Oogiee"
- Sasse: "Turning into a Soho808 fan, nice dirty groove going on here again, will play !"

B2 / Satin Jackets – Girl, Forever / TT 07:25

As always Dikso keeps the B2 position for the pearls. Satin Jackets tried to put as much romance as possible in every single sound, even in the name of the track. Don’t call it kitschy, this is the perfect first aid against all the dark feelings, depressions and cold days that we will have to survive the next months in the northern hemisphere. Pure love!

- Craig Smith from 6th Borough Project: "Loving all the cuts, hard to pick a fave, probably Satin Jackets on initial listens."
- Dirt Crew: "Big up for the Satin Jackets groove ! smooth as hell :)"
- Kiko Navarro: "Loving the first chords on Satin Jackets, loving how they develope the track, very nice surprise to close the EP. Thanks a lot!"

Controverse reactions on DIKSO007 - Manolo - Night Rhythm '11

As you may have noticed, Dikso likes to cross the boundaries of good taste from time to time. And if we love a rework of a cheesy nineties dance anthem, we will release it.

We have never received so many reactions on a release as on Manolo's "Night Rhythm". More than 10.000 plays on Roberto's soundcloud really impressed us. Most of them were thrilled but some people were rather irritated. Phonica reviewed it in their online-store like that: "This love-it-or-hate-it track..." and "a less tacky version of a guilty pleasure or the proof that nu-disco has become the new funky house....answers on a postcard!" Guys, we looove to entertain you... :-)

Fortunately, chartings and massive airplay from Tensnake, Jody Wisternoff, Ooft!, Chopstick & Johnjon, Jacques Renault, Marc Poppcke and DFA's Justin Miller showed that there are people out there who share our strange sense of humour. Also a million thanks to André Langenfeld and Shir-Khan from Radio Fritz and Larse from Einslive for their great support. And Tensnake for promoting it on his facebook page which generated more than 150 likes within 24 hours...

And here is the unavoidable hall of fame:

- Tensnake: "Brilliant!"
- Soul Clap: "Can't wait to see the crowd reaction!"
- The Revenge: "Dubs for me..."
- Daniel from Trickski: "Fun, fun, fun!" and Yannick added: "Hugh release [...] will play both versions"
- Chopstick: "I love Dikso! Been playing all the releases so far!!!" and Johnjon added: "HOLY SHIT! [...] The Solar & de Luxe Remix will find its place in a lot of our sets!"
- Guy from Sleazy Beats: "Not so keen on the vocal mixes but both dubs will destroy dancefloors I reckon." and Kris added: "I honestly can't get into the vocal cuts because they really remind me of that awful uber pop dance track that played non-stop on the radio in the 80s (or 90s?). Will give the dubs some action though!"
- Ali Ooft: "Gotta be Andi & Daniels Dub mix for me. Big track."
- Francis Inferno Orchestra: "Absolutely fantastic, 10/10 the whole package is A+++"
- Catzn Dogz: "Fantastic release!!"
- Till von Sein: "Damn.. the vocal sucks.. biiiig time! but the dubs are cool"
- Jody Wisternoff from Way Out West: "Will be hammering this till the cows come home :)"

- KRL: "Yes!! guaranteed party smasher, going straight in the [...] bag for this weekend."
- Kiko Navarro: "First reaction was an smile on my face [...] this one is thousand times better than the original. Now its a bit special situation to play this mix even the work is excellent because of the vox, depende where and how can be a bit too..."

- Toomy Disco: "Amazing vibes! 10/10 keep doin' this."
- DJ Ionik from Kojak Giant Sounds: "Bravo! [...] if this thing doesn t get the party going you re most likely playing to a bunch of Perussuomalaiset. 10/10."
