Review: Here we have the second instalment of rarities from the vaults of Apersonal Music. Leading the way in this collection of 'ones that got away' is the loopy, sloppy-disco house of Igor Jadranin's "Countless Nights", the soundtrack to the messiest imaginary party ever. Next up, Michael Bow's 1980s Italo-disco hit "Love & Devotion", is slowed and warped (almost out of all recognition) into a mellow electro-boogie gem by Davide Franca. Lastly, Joseph Terruel ends things with the insistent, yet lazy, orchestrated funk of "Tryin To Be Me".

Review: Don't worry, Joseph Terruel hasn't started covering Simply Red, but the Joy Of Sex-style cover of the It's Only Love Doing Its Thing EP does reveal a nod to bearded 70s-style sauciness. The title track is nearly seven minutes of sultry swingers party disco, with a little house Viagra to add a little extra thrust. Elsewhere. "The Guest" is perkier, looped funk and "The Uninvited Guest" is all about retro hazy strings and soothing Fender Rhodes chords.

Review: Mexico's slo-mo-house king, Joseph Terruel, likes a certain level of vintage sauciness to his tunes, and this latest single of his doesn't disappoint. Yes, with its warm undulating bass, loose hi-hats and eyebrow-raising blues licks "Thrill" could well be straight out of a 1970s porno flick. If the latter is all the boudoir sounds, then "Unity" is all about steppin' out on the dancefloor - all looped slap bass fun, spacey filters and a solid 4/4 backbeat, simple but effective boogie.

Review: Mexico's Joseph Terruel has got it made - by creating the perfect sun-goes-down cocktail disco music, he's created the perfect sun-goes-down cocktail disco life for himself, or at least we'd like to believe so anyway. Here's his latest missive on Paraiso Musique and it's a two-track sizzler. The title track, "Blue Regret" serves up some uncharacteristically lively disco action from the man - all thumping four to the floor beats, lush orchestration and 70s analogue synthetics. "Tool For Love" meanwhile, is what we know best from Terruel; a slow, warm Balearic haze of joint. Dive in, the water's just right.

Review: Sexy deep house for trendy, inner city cocktail bars, velvet rope and all; courtesy of Mexico's Joseph Terruel. No doubt this guy is a fan of Harbour City labels like Hafendisko or Steve Bug's Dessous imprint, which is all over this release and we can appreciate that. The original of "Mirage" is sleek and slinky and with enough swagger to get early evening revellers of the dancefloor. The Wilo Schubarth remix really nails it in a druggy, afterhours type of vibe with its low slung groove, woozy pads and warbled vocal samples. Finally the "Tonight" mix is rather sombre and stripped back with those hypnotic chords and simple beat all working to perfection along with the looped vocal refrain.

Review: Editorial love slo-mo disco grooves and their latest comp, Funk Ride, is packed full them. Matt Hughes kicks off the Balearic party with elasticated basslines, bongos and poolside sunset vibes on "Biodigital Jazz", Joseph Terruel, ups the tempo a fraction for the dreamy boogie of "Basics" and Woodhead whips out the brass section and tight guitar licks for "Hopeless Situation". Elsewhere Napoleon drops the fuzzy funk loops on the hazy boogie jam "Little Sailor" whilst we drift away on the blue-sky chords of Old Chap's "I've Got The Groovy Touch" and Feza closes with the compressed live funk anthem "Discotizier".

Review: Since delivering a quartet of sensual, slo-mo house EPs way back in 2011, Mexican producer Joseph Terruel has been surprisingly quiet. In the last four years he's released just one solo single, last year's well-received Tool For Love EP on Hotbox Boogie. Slave To The Rhythm, then, is a welcome return, and sees him further developing the dreamy, tactile, slo-mo and mid-tempo deep house sound we've come to love. The impressive "Dropping Down" (which also gets the remix treatment from Softmore) is the audio equivalent of a tantric sponge bath, and arguably the EP's strongest moment. That said, the darker, slightly uncomfortable "A Day Like Today" is tasty, too, while the title track is as breezy and lovely as you'd expect.

Review: Imagine Michael McDonald, James Ingram and DJ Alfredo made a record and rubbed it with wire wool because it still wasn't smooth enough. That's "Tool For Love", all shimmering synth soul goodness to which Dave Allison adds some mean meandering bass and samples. "Joy To Be" meanwhile, is a sharp-snared early 80s electro funk smacker which gets both beefed up and stripped down by Hotbox Boogie.

Review: In his previous outings for In The Woods and Bust A Dub, Joseph Terruel has proved adept at blending atmospheric, slo-mo house grooves with hazy disco samples and touchy-feely melodies. On this latest release for new label Fruit of Life, he ups the tempo, resulting in a jaunty, atmospheric groover that bristles with cut-glass strings, dreamy vocal samples and jazzy guitars. It's a rather delicious concoction, all told. Remix-wise, there's a plethora of reworks to choose from. There's some filter-heavy deep disco-house from Sonicvibe, a bubbly nu-disco dub from Eddie Hu and a delightful slo-mo "Dubstramental" from Terruel himself.

Review: With Valentines Day just around the corner, Editorial changes tack and takes a step into the world of loved-up, slo-mo groovery. It's a smart move. They've got some great up-and-coming producers involved, with Matthew Kyle's pal Joseph Terruel and Aussie moustache man Rocco Raimundo both offering deliciously deep, spine-tingling rubs. The latter's epic, filter-heavy "Looking For You" is arguably one of the best things he's done to date - a sinewy, string-laden disco slow dance that should impress all but the most miserable of disco purists. Heion's "Run" and DJ Steef's "I Can Win" are gorgeous, too, offering loopy, bass-heavy grooves with just the right amount of lip-smacking charm.
