Review: Rumours have been circulating on the Internet that Montreal duo Footprintz have gone their separate ways. If these are to be believed (and they certainly seem to be true), this debut full-length for Visionquest could also be their swansong. If it is, then it's a fine way to go out. Assisted on production duties by the ever-reliable Ewan Pearson, the Canadian pair has delivered a tactile, touchy-feely collection of dream-pop (think Holy Ghost or Benoit & Sergio meets '89 shoegaze) that gleefully breaks free from the shackles of Visionquest's impersonal trademark sound. Woozy, warm and inviting, it should appeal to those who enjoy the work of fellow Canadian synth-poppers the Junior Boys.

Review: Russian producer Sunner Soul has forged a reputation as one of the more reliable sources of slinky, sensual, slo-mo grooves. Here, he expands the repertoire of his reliable Vintage Music label by snapping up a couple of similarly minded producers and laying down an EP so laidback and silky that it's virtually horizontal. His quietly soulful chugger "Love You Anyway" stands out, but there's plenty more to enjoy - not least the starburst disco-boogie rush of The Sunshine Disco Club's "The Pleasure Boat". Banana Lover provides a trio of eyes-closed, super slow groovers, of which the blissful "Favorite Thriller" is arguably the pick.

Review: The good ship Juno traverses the Firecracker galaxy and lands once more in the spacious Unthank region with more down under cross genre pollinations. Last year's Inskwel induction was a noted highlight in the small but perfectly formed Unthank catalogue, but this fifth edition from the unheralded Booshank might just match it. Loose gargling acid of the deranged kind characterises lead track "Single Dutch" whilst on the flip "Interstate" has that psychedelic, cosmic vibe that Max D does so well. Booshank's disregard for kick drum politics is demonstrated with aplomb on "Secret Life" a simmering concoction of bristling textures which explodes into a charge of drums with the kind of glee that's almost sexual.

Review: Living in Siberia has never stopped Alexander Chebankov from donning the proverbial Hawaiian shirt and producing soundtracks for dreamier, sunnier climes. Here, as Sunner Soul, he deliver three slowed down wonders - "Love Will Find A Way" is a sumptuous production that teases out a velvety 80s soul sample of Lionel Richie at his most seductive. "So Much Time" is a cosmic jam that builds into a soul belter, and finally "Together Again" demonstrates how vintage funk when edited, looped and filtered kind of becomes vintage house.

Review: Any track that inspires you to dance like a loon while attempting both air guitar and air trumpet has got to be good. That's exactly what Odahl's remix of F3's latest, "Magnificent", does. With its numerous breakdowns, bright sound and funtime nu-disco vibes, it's a bit of a winner. While the rest of the remixes don't quite reach its dizzying heights, there are some other notable versions (the cheery original is pretty boss, too). Matt Prehn turns it into a driving chunk of electrofunk-influenced deep house, while Nathan Swiss's lazy, nu-Balearic version is a picture of grin-inducing beauty.

Review: Following a couple of years when he's rocked more uptempo rhythms, Cole Medina makes a return to the sumptuous, soul-flecked sound with which he made his name. Both "Stay With Cole" and the gorgeous "Aint No Funq" recall the orgasmic, touchy-feely vibes of his infamous Bee Gees rework ("Cole Loves You Inside & Out"), working a glut of glossy, string-laden soul samples into steaming slices of slo-mo sensuality. "Cole's Just Crazy" throws some 80s soul into the pot for max end-of-night slow-dance pressure, but it's the other two tracks that really excel. Sexytime with Cole, anyone?

Review: Spanish re-edit hero Rayko had a productive 2011, releasing some of the best cut-ups and disco reworks of the year. Here he begins 2011 in similar fashion, delivering four more tried and tested slabs of dancefloor funk. Opener "My Lady" does a terrific job at re-modelling a Prince-era, slap-bass heavy 80s jam, removing all but snatches of the vocal in favour of more instrumental groovery. "After The After" continues on a similar theme, going deeper into slow dance territory, while "Turn Me On Again" builds brilliantly over six delightfully sensual minutes. "This Is It", meanwhile, adds some head-nodding house flavours to a simmering 80s soul jam. Solid.

Review: In recent times, Hans-Peter Lindstrom has been relatively quiet, shying away from the limelight to spend time in the studio. If you're curious about what he's been up to, this two-track single should dispel any doubts about where he's at. Both "Ra-Ako-St" and "Ed-Ged-Osis" are typical Lindstrom; delightfully melodic, with an air of space disco pomposity, propelled forwards by the sort of dynamic, appregiated synthesizer lines that have become his trademark. Both tracks are delivered in extended edit form, with old pal Todd Terje providing the razor-sharp scalpel work. For the record, it's the rush-inducing "Ed-Ged-Osis" that impresses most - it's well Scandolearic, in case you wondered - but both are classic Lindstrom. Welcome back, old friend.

Review: Liverpool based disco label Cosmic Boogie have built a strong reputation for themselves for the past few years for their brilliant 12" releases, including edits from legends such as Greg Wilson and Ashley Beedle, relative newcomers such as Leftside Wobble and productions from Mr Boogie himself. This digital release is the first label compilation, collecting all its releases thus far, previously only available on wax. Of the multitude of great tweaks on offer here, highlights include Ashley Beedle's edit of Bill Withers' "Railroad Man" replete with a weirdo 60s organ solo, Greg Wilson's edit of Strutt's euphoric "Time Moves On", and Cosmic Boogie's peak time version of War's "Youngblood", which takes the marimba and piano driven funk of the original and recuts it to powerful effect. Also be sure to check Leftside Wobble's edit of Patti Jo's "Ain't No Love Lost", with its strange hybrid of 60s Spector produced girl-group pop and Paradise Garage disco.

Review: There's something faithfully fuzzy about the Grimy Edits series. Clearly inspired by Rahaan's scalpel-heavy reworks and the crusty grooves of Theo Parrish's Ugly Edits series, there's a loose authenticity throughout that should appeal to crate-digging disco heads. "Who Can I Turn To" sets the tone, delivering a percussive rework of an unfamiliar lights-out, disco-soul anthem. It's an undeniably sweaty in that "shirts off" way that only a particular kind of disco can be. The faster "Freakin" brilliantly flits between heavy disco-funk breaks and the sharp strings of its source material, while "Keep On Running" rides a way of soaring horns, heavy percussion and breathless vocals.

Review: Since launching last year, House of Disco Records has made something of a splash, offering an array of disco-influenced deep house cuts with a decidedly atmospheric flavour. Here they join forces with the similarly minded Dikso label for an expansive compilation featuring fresh cuts from both imprints' artists. There's much to admire, from the casual soulfulness of Nihan Solo's super-deep "Hey Girl" (inspired, perhaps, by dewy-eyed '80s soul) to the delay-laden, low-end wobble of Daniel Solar's "Hush" and Unsui's excellent slo-mo acid jam "Anata". Best of all, though, is Volta Cab's "What It Feels Like", a supreme example of super-sensual warm-up fare.

Review: GQ were a successful 1970s American soul/disco act whose biggest hit was probably 1978's "Disco Nights (Rock Freak). Here Frico provides a cheeky re-edit, which really just teases out the goodness of this excellent rock guitar-heavy disco classic. Also included here is an edit of "Groovin' You", complete with killer extended break and immediately recognisable 'dum, dum, dum, dum, dum" chant.
