Daniel Solar is a rising talent whose auspicious work for No More Hits, Dikso and Sleazy Beats precede this latest impressive outing. The fact the Berlin based producer is the latest to drop some jams for Undertones speaks volumes alone; after all this is an imprint that's treated your feet to releases from the likes of Red Rack'em, KiNK and Delano Smith. This Dirtiest Clean EP is afforded extra incentive by the inclusion of a remix from the aforementioned Delano Smith. The title track opens proceedings and demonstrates Solar's ease at crafting an infectious house groove from the intricate arrangement of frosted organ stabs and a surfeit of female vocal snippets. The gently undulating pads add some emotive depth too! The accompanying remix from Delano Smith ramps up the BPM and switches the focus to imbuing those emotive pads with some extra kick and does a pretty effective peak time job. Solar even finds room to indulge his previously shown disco side with the sultry mid tempo 80s bump of "For You".
