And of course, keep on playing out this stuff, it's a wonderful feeling to spread something all over the world we really love, MUSIC!!! <3

We also got some chartings from Manik, Martin Hayes, Get Down Edits, The Legendary 1979 Orchestra, LeSale and many others. Also a really warm thank you for that, fellas.

And these are some of the comments, in no particular order...:

Every single remix is very special & picking a favorite is next to impossible. To sum it up best... everyone should do themselves a favor and pick this vinyl up. In-fact... Pick up two copies so when one wears out... you've got a fresh new one to put in it's place! tremendous release guys!"
- Jacques Renault: "Go go dikso - will play these guys for sure"

- Kiko Navarro: "Dikso is one of the labels that when i get a promo there is a big smile on my face, i like the way you are taking care of the high quality on each release. On This case my favourite is the Duff Disco, loving the deep chords and the atmosphere it creates."

- Ali Ooft: "Wooo! KRL!!! Gonna be a big track for me. Digging Homework's deep remix as well."
- Show-B: "Booooom... another excellent release. really diggin A1 and B2... will be in one of the next CBLS. cheers."
- D-Pulse: "Daniel Solar & Andi de Luxe remix is what we need" Also some quotes from the blogosphere:
- keep-it-deep.blogspot.com: "The owners of Dikso recordings do a great job and release outstanding, genre-crossing music between lush disco and bouncey house."

P.S.: When I was writing this article, I had a first listening session with the final remix for the digital add-on package. Daniel and Aniya's track "Can You Really Know" got a big apple treatment from 50% of the soho808 guys, Dave Robertson and his girlfriend Alyssa. Must be a really harmonic relationship, the remix is unbelievable. Full of mystery and full of love, what is not a contradiction in terms. Love has always been a mystery to me. but it's there, for everyone of us. You don't believe in that? Can you really know...?

DIKSO009 - V/A - Super Sound Single Remixes

Welcome to Dikso’s unbelievable before-and-after-show. Four contestants and four remix teams, four original stories that had to be continued and four results that had to be pressed on vinyl. And Dikso’s very own Daniel Solar was such a chatterbox that he produced a fifth story that will follow as a digital bonus.

A1 / Autodeep & Romorri - Make You Mine (KRL Remix)

I’m gonna make you mine, I’m gonna make you mine… That’s what Romorri said on Super Sound Single #4. And KRL, well known from the almighty Wolf Music Recordings label, beams him in a situation that made all dreams come true. The courtship has succeeded and Romorri, Autodeep & KRL are going mad on it. Definitely the most crazy piece of house music Dikso has ever released!

A2 / Larse – So Much Fun (Roberto Rodriguez Remix)

With “So Long” Larse is in everybody’s record case, Traktor playlist or download queue at the moment. On Dikso’s fifth Super Sound Single he delivered with “So Much Fun” his probably most disco- and funk-influenced track for years. Roberto Rodriguez from Finland added some straightness and a cool nordic attitude. So much rolling…

B1 / Duff Disco – I Won’t Forget (Homework Perspective)

Also more straightness for Duff Disco. Homework from Amsterdam touched his original in a very respectful way and present their deep and dope dancefloor perspective on Duff Disco’s original.

B2 / soho808 – Turning Slow feat. Lydia Caesar (Daniel Solar & Andi de Luxe Remix)

The hosts of Dikso take the back seat called B2. They sent Lydia and the boys from soho808 to the classic NY house scene before KBE Giuliani cleaned the city…
