Review: While Sunner Soul seems to be a little less prolific than he once was, the quality of his releases continues to rise. Here, the Russian producer returns to his Vintage Music imprint with a trio of tasty, tried-and-tested soul re-edits. He begins with the undulating Afro-soul hustle and low-slung grunt of "Real Sekele", before turning his attention to Chain Reaction's 1977 disco-soul single "Sweet Lady (Dance With Me)". His version retains much of the original source material - including the killer bassline - while "fixing" the wonky, out-of-time beats to ensure greater mixing opportunities. He finishes with a killer rework of Blue Magic's overlooked, piano-laden, 1983 boogie jam "Clean Up Your Act", which is worth the entrance price alone.

Review: Long serving re-editor Sunner Soul is one of the disco scene's more reliable scalpel fiends, releasing regular doses of hazy, good-time grooves on the Vintage Music outlet he founded some years back. Further proof of his skills - and those of his label artists - can be found on this eighth expansive Vintage Music compilation. It gathers together a scintillating selection of reworks that veer from good-time disco smashers and groovy warm-up gems, to scorching disco-funk slammers and bouncy, sun-kissed shufflers. Happily, there's a mix of old-fashioned rearrangements and tooled-up reworks, with source material that's both well known and obscure.
