DiKSO Podcast 09 - Elias

Elias, just Elias. Short, catchy and cut right to the chase. Like name like music...

Podcast number nine comes from Thessaloniki, Greece and brings us a wonderful mix of cool slowed down deep and dirty house stuff, some classic disco edits and right at the beginning an update for the coolest gal of contemporary r&b music - Aaliyah.

I am sure you know this typical shirt that you can buy in almost every shop that is selling souvenirs and other useless stuff those who stayed at home never asked for, it has writings like this: "My mom went to podunk town and all I got was this lousy shirt". They are as useless as slide shows or videos from culture travels or thousands of sickening facebook greetings from a place that seems so much better than your rainy home.

But a few people does it better, they carry things home that are really interesting, some experiences that can broaden your mind, new and different views and sometimes they just bring music. Marc Poppcke, one of Dikso's midwifes, is travelling a lot these days and some months ago he was invited to play at Thessaloniki's Bar Elvis, a nice venue with nice people and even nicer music. Elias is one of the residents at Bar Elvis and Marc was so impressed that he did not talked about the nice weather in Greece or the girls he met, he talked about Elias. And about Elias and about Elias.

To understand Marc's enthusiasm and why I have bursted with curiosity just listen to these 60 minutes and let us grab you... and wow you!

Dikso Records 004 - Super Sound Single Volume 4

OUT OUT OUT... we are so so happy to announce our fourth little baby, Super Sound Single Volume 4 with four new tracks to warm your heart, kick your ass, shake your hips and perhaps all in one.

Welcome Ali OOFT!, the producer of maybe the best MJ edit ever, who delivers all but disco and edits. Welcome Autodeep from our home town Hannover who were teaming up with the former NY Broadway musical actor Robb Morris. Welcome soho808, not from the Broadway but from NYC, with their vinyl debut and... Welcome my good friend and Dikso partner Daniel Solar.

A1: OOFT! - Hit For Six

Hypnotic slowmo builder with a nice junoesque analog feel that builds and builds and builds. Quality work from Glasgow's Ali Ooft, bosom buddy of The Revenge and label manager of Foto Recordings and L.E.S.S. Recordings.

A2: Autodeep & RoMorri - Make You Mine

Hannover's Autodeep teaming up with falsetto voice Romorri from Cologne for something deep and slinky that will attract the girls and some boys as well. And sometimes a 303 is able to add what words can't express. Erotic stuff...

B1: Daniel Solar - Baby's Tears

Dikso goes peak time! Driving disco house from Dikso landlord Daniel Solar. Nice vocal breaks and smooth filter action for ultimate dancefloor pleasure, BAM!

Daniel continues showing why he is fast becoming a rising star in the world of things funky with a very proper sliced up piece of work. But I saved perhaps the best for last..... and thank you for introducing me to something new in soho808! What a beautiful track and easily the standout of the EP for me! It has the blend of tempo, sultry vocals, and lush chords that make me wanna smile every time I listen. Another fine piece of work from the Dikso camp!" and Mike added: "By now, dikso's quality is a forgone conclusion and dikso004 just reinforces that notion once again. you literally can't go wrong with any single cut on here but for me personally."
