Sergique - "Chain Reaction" - (7:17) 90 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Sergique - "Wakiya" - (6:40) 118 BPM
Review: For their latest release the Vintage label have opted for a split EP featuring at least one coup - a rare solo outing from Banana Lover, who is more regularly known as Sunner Soul's second banana. He doesn't disappoint either, delivering the cool "Queens", which sets the compression and the filters to 11 for a French touch-style party anthem. Sergique handles the other two tracks here, taking things into dreamy Mediterranean bliss-fest territory on "Chain Reaction" and later into sparse, smoky late night disco spaces on "Wakiya".

Banana Lover - "Love Cruise" - (4:56) 116 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Banana Lover & Sheriff - "Carefree Summer" - (3:52) 90 BPM
Review: It seems that living in Siberia doesn't stop Alexander Chebankov from living a sun-kissed dream. He recently founded Vintage Records as a channel for all his dreamy, palm-lined disco re-edits. Here he presents someone with the unfortunate title of Banana Lover, who presents two such tracks for our listening pleasure. "Love Cruise" is straight-up party froth: what sounds much like a late 70s Streisand/Gibb number filtered and looped with big drops that kick back in with a supreme joy. "Carefree" is a fuzzed-out slo-mo head-nodded that convincingly gives the listen the sense of having one Pina Colada too many.

What we do know however is that we have seven prime disco cuts to choose from. Highlights include the sultry psychedelic disco of "Kiss", the rousing diva house of "Night Visions" and the eccentric percussive meltdown that is "Girlfriend From Chat".

B Magic - "Clean Up" (Sunner Soul edit) - (5:13) 117 BPM
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: Kid Goodman isn't a kid, though he may be a good man. It's actually a pseudonym for Russian producer Ivan Gudkov, who built his reputation via a series of illicit reworks of familiar disco-era hits. "Nice And Slow" is his debut release, and sees him delivering the sort of shimmering, slo-mo house fare that should tickle the fancy of anyone who enjoys the work of Nicholas or 6th Borough Project. It actually sounds like a classic, early '90s house record pitched down to 100 BPM. Remix-wise, there's a deliciously slow rework from Relife, a thrilling electrofunk-meets-piano house tweak from KG Dance, and an odd but endearing garage rub from Symbol Skrip.

Review: Here we have a love of disco and good times coming from Saint Petersberg's Kim & Buran. The Starfall EP sees the pair re-edit a host of vintage cuts with the overall vibe very much evoking Sea Hunt-era Patrick Cowley. First up, Roger Webb's "Flying Objects" gets tweaked and edited into a five minute space-boogie odyssey, complete layer upon layer of warm 70s production love. Next, the clavinet is dug outta the attic and dusted off for some fat, groovy 70s funk on Eolika's "Starfall" and lastly Francis Monkman's "Getting Ready" is a slow and sensual orchestrated groover.

Sormowskie Zori - (6:16) 125 BPM

Review: This three-tracker marks the Vintage Music debut of Scruscru, a producer who has been quietly going about his business for the past couple of years. Like much of Vintage Music's catalogue, there's a summery warmth and gently sun-kissed vibe present throughout. We're particularly enjoying the colourful guitar riffs, twinkling melodies, wonky electronics and metronomic deep house drums of trippy, dubbed-out shuffler "Burevestnik (feat. J Balanov)", though sumptuous Balearic deep house closer "Sormowskie Zori" - all bustling drums, cascading echo-laden guitars and eyes closed melodies - is also rather good. That said, the title track's combination of crunchy snares, tactile melodies and swirling disco samples also ticks all the right boxes.

Review: Sergey Silvertone is back on Vintage Music, the label where he got his productions off the ground back in 2010. The mood is housey, as always, and Silvertone has got seven summer blasters for you to get hold of. Our top picks are "In My Mind" - featuring Sunner Soul - for its loungey, meditative vibes; "This Is" also pricked our ears up thanks to its glitch, minimalistic style a-la Rhadoo, and "Rain In The Heart" has to be in there, too, for that driving, pulsating bassline.

Review: Like many contemporary producers, Sunner Soul began his career crafting house-friendly disco and soul re-edits, before moving towards creating original deep house tracks. Return of the Groove is his latest house EP, and shows just how far he's come. There's a confident feel throughout, with the bass-heavy "Are You Ready" - all comfy chords, darting acid bass and cut-up vocal samples - and chunky "Rewind" showing serious dancefloor potential. The Russian producer isn't afraid to mix things up, either, as the bouncy dub house flex of "Feel That" and loose piano-house jam "Get Back" - layered with soulful attitude and the hallmarks of classic American house - neatly prove.

View Of Passengers - (5:42) 115 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: If you didn't know better, you might expect Sampling As An Art to be some kind of experimental tribute to the potential of the sampler. Sunner Soul doesn't deal in such pretentiousness, though, and instead serves up a trio of heady deep house jams that make great use of hand-picked samples from a range of soul, funk, jazz, Brazilian and disco records. It's a tried-and-tested approach, but one that pays dividends. All three tracks are warm, hazy and musically evocative, with beats that swing rather than slam in the same way as acclaimed material by the likes of Andres and Jus-Ed. Our pick is probably the stab-heavy bounce of "Flip Side of the Dark", but the slowly evolving "View of Passengers" runs it close.

Review: Given his Siberian roots, you'd expect this EP of edits-not-edits (i.e edits with overdubs and additional productions) from producer Sunner Soul to be icier than a frost-laden walk in freezer. Actually, it's totally the opposite, offering a trio of slo-mo tracks that are so warm, sunny and groovesome that you actually expect them to come with a free hug from Sunner himself. "Disco Action" itself is a gorgeous chunk of Rhodes-laden disco-boogie, whilst "Just Loving You" is a seductive call to the cozy warmth of a kingsize bed. "Sunshine", meanwhile, gently bumps and grinds around sun-flecked guitars, groovy bottom end and some seriously sexy horns.

There are four luscious jams here, all written and produced by the man himself apparently (not sure where those 70s samples come from though!). Anyway, it's the vibe that counts and there are plenty of those. "Make It Better" is nearly seven minutes of sinuous, filtered disco sexiness, "Sidewalk Samba" is all slinky Latin beach grooves, "Unfinished Fight" is a gorgeous extension of an 80s Stevie Wonder synth soul jam and "You're Lying" is a deep and gooey slice of disco-tinged funky house.

Review: Following a recent outing on Tonbe's Disco Fruit imprint, St Petersburg's finest re-editor returns to his Vintage Music imprint. Happily, he's in fine form, giddily chopping up, beefing up and rearranging a trio of happy, sun-kissed tonight. There's something particularly alluring about the woozy synthesizer melodies, jazzy keys, hustlin' house rhythms and disco percussion of "Transatlantic". This formula is repeated on the sensual but floor-friendly "Disco Retreat", where swirling strings and punchy horns help create a sticky, sweat-drenched vibe. Finally, the Russian successfully dips the tempo on the sax-laden, low-slung, bassline-driven sleaze of "Got The Floor", which expertly builds up over six sexy minutes.

Lastly we encounter the laid back, elastic bass and clavinet-laden funky sing-along "House Party" by Fresh Wesley and re-edited by VMR.

Review: Label-hopping Siberian Sunner Soul is in a cheery mood, which may - in part, at least - be down to his return to the Vintage Music imprint he founded in 2009. The positively titled Happy EP begins with "Hang On", a deliciously hazy, dreamy chunk of fluttering disco-meets-deep house bliss built around slowly shifting loop patterns, stretched-out builds, cut-up samples and bouncy bottom end. Horn-heavy title track "Happy" is little less than a rush-inducing romp through party-starting disco-funk cheeriness, while "All Right" sees him expertly re-arrange (and tool-up) a shuffling, sun-kissed disco-funk cut full of rising string lines, fizzing jazz-funk synths and punchy horn lines. In other words, it's an EP chock full of mood enhancing moments.

The title track is all twangy bass loops and The Hustle style flute melodies, "Dr Love" is a real banger, with a thumping kick propelling a loop clavinet riff and lots of spacey effects and "Wonderland Disco" spread a positive message of change over a snazzy disco-house rhythm. Lastly "Filtered Punk" displays a little French Touch in it's merciless filtering of some vintage boogie.

Review: Russian producer Alexander Chebankov dusts down his Sunner Soul moniker for three more trips into the debris-strewn no-man's land between disco and house. Opener "Aquatic Space" sees him at his slow motion best, turning a head-nodding mellow soul classic into a bass-heavy slo-mo house chugger. "Body Language" repeats the trick, nudging closer to edit territory by turning a stoned soul-rock jam into a slick fusion of dubby grooves, lazy guitar solos and super-smooth vocals. "Disco In My Pocket" ups the tempo to a hectic 126 BPM, delivering a thumping but subtle enough retweak of disco classic "Angel In My Pocket".

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.

Now as a producer, musician, DJ and record label owner, he presents his deep/funky/nu-disco/edits on his label Vintage Music. On the Right Cuts & Parts EP, we have the funky and filtered disco loops of "Soul Drifter" (original mix) or "Right Now" (original mix) which are reminiscent of early Cassius or Motorbass and similarly "Rainbow Set" (original mix) that equally features that distinct 'French Touch' on this dusty DJ tool. The Russian producer has had additional releases on hot disco labels such as Midnight Riot, Editorial and Funky Town in recent times and we expect to be hearing much more from this emerging talent in the months to come.

Review: Sunner Soul's Deep Connections series appears to be an attempt to re-focus attention on his original house productions, rather than the hazy and sun-kissed re-edits with which he made his name. If that is the idea, then it has been a success; this second volume in the series contains some superb material. We're particularly enjoying the dreamy deep house/nu-disco fusion of opener "Spread Love" and bouncy, piano-heavy peak-time pump of classic house stomper "Help Me". Arguably best of all, though, is the druggy, basement-bothering throb of "Rewind", which recalls some of Danny Tenaglia's more bass-heavy house productions circa his late '90s residency at Twilo (think organs, hazy vocal samples, bold bass and crunchy percussion).

Highlights include the sparkling riffs and chunky old school beats of "Cold Breath", the piano-laden, acid-flecked warmth of "Acid In My Mind" - arguably the EP's most potent cut - and the low-slung, late night hustle of "Are You Ready", a fine slab of retro-futurist U.S house heaviness that subtly doffs a cap to masters of the style such as Chez Damier and Kerri Chandler.

He begins with a blissful ambient tool - perfect for mix intros and such - before expertly reworking a global disco shuffler ("Fuwafuwa Groove"). The swirling peak-time disco of "Good Time" is next, followed by an expertly executed cut-up of Evelyn 'Champagne' King boogie classic "Love Come Down" that offers a subtle nod towards Tiger and Woods. The sweaty disco-funk bump of "Ready To Back" and horn-heavy groover "Rescue Of Time" complete an excellent package.

Review: St Petersburg's Sunner Soul invites us into his "Discotheque", a place where sweet disco strings, groovy basslines, swirling filter effects, bumping house beats and hazy electric piano chords join hands on the dancefloor. As usual, there's plenty to enjoy, from the breezy disco-house elasticity of "The Mystery of Loops" and hazy, rush-inducing positivity of "Way Back Time", to the jazzy deep house shuffle of "Broers Vergadering" and extra-percussive, dubbed-out disco brilliance of "Pleased With Oneself". The pick for peak-time plays is undoubtedly opener "Back To Loving", a spiraling disco-house romp that rises and falls in all the right places.

Review: St Petersburg resident Sunner Soul has had releases on the likes of Acryl Music, Midnight Riot, Tronic and Armada, but this five-track EP comes on his own Vintage Music label. Opener 'Dancing In Madness' ain't nothin' but a lazy summer groove complete with crowd noise and mucho use of the filters, 'Don't Hold Back' is in a similar vein but has a phatter bottom-end and 'Feel Good 2 U' is another late 90s filter disco throwback, before 'Handle With Care' leads us down a slightly more sophisticated jazz-funk path and 'Sunrise Jam' plays us out with jazz piano and energising James Brown-like whoops and shouts.

Review: Vintage Music chief Sunner Soul can usually relied upon to serve up summer sizzlers that gleefully blur the boundaries between re-edits, remixes and original productions. That's certainly what's on offer here, beginning with the breezy, breakbeat-fuelled sunshine grooves of opener "Summertime". "Ready To Dance", meanwhile, is a filter-sporting disco-house shuffler rich in good-time grooves, warm bass and punchy horn lines. Elsewhere, Sunner Soul does a great job turning Trombone and Roberto's latin jazz-funk jam "Coluna Do Meio" into a shuffling, floor-friendly, mid-tempo disco-house cut, turns The Mighty Ryeders "Evil Vibrations" into a bumpin' filter-house jam ("Funky Vibrations") and re-edits the un-credited "Boogie Land" into a loopy, locked-in roller.

From the sexy, lo-slung groove of "About Our Love" with its Salsoul Orchestra like symphonies, the sleazy liquid funk of the electric "Flying Violins" and finally "Music Band" crammed with sweleteing steel drums, a massive horns section and uplifting vocals - these quality jams have arrived just in time for Summer. All killer, no filler on this one!

Review: Lazy, sun-drenched (nu) disco vibes are the order of the day on this four-tracker from Alexandr Chebankov, better known as Sunner Soul. 'West Side Harmony' is a looping funker augmented by crowd noise and assorted vocal snips, 'The Fuss' foregrounds a jaunty little piano lick, and 'Someone But Not You' harks back to that time around 1980 or so when 70s disco was rapidly morphing into 80s boogie. Arguably the standout, though, is 'Double Jazz Fusion', a clue's-in-the-title number with dusty vocal fragments, minor-key piano trills and what sounds like live double bass. Serve accompanied by an Ibiza sunset for maximum impact!

Review: One of the joys of Alexandr Chebankov's work as Sunner Soul has always been its inherent sun-kissed sumptuousness. Interestingly, there's a little more hard-worn heaviness to be found on his latest outing - see the shirts-off sweatiness of throbbing, arpeggio-driven peak-time assault of "Bad Boys Disco" and the cheery, party disco stomp of "Sugar Love Babe" - but the producer's love of smile-inducing dancefloor haziness remains. Check, for example, the loopy mid-tempo goodness of disco head-nodder "Body Fusion", a formidably bass-heavy revision of a familiar staple, and the deep house influenced, breakbeat driven disco jazziness of "Love Space", which may well be the EP's most alluring moment.

Review: Having conducted his own glassy-eyed sunrise s?ance, Vintage Music main man Sunner Soul has successfully summoned the "Spirits of the Boogie" for a hazy early morning dance. Perhaps the most alluring of these "spirits" is opener "Constanera Montana", a vibraphone sporting shuffle through drowsy Rhodes chords and metronomic beats, though the heavy and low-slung "The Bright Day" and all-action electrofunk workout "Voice of Saturn" run it close. Elsewhere, "Sprit of the Boogie" is a bass-heavy disco-funk party jam smothered in high-grade horn lines and brilliant bass guitar, while "Jazzy Patterns (Raw Edit)" is an accurately titled blend of dusty machine drums, jazz samples and crazy special effects.

Review: Five fine slices of contemporary disco make up this latest EP from Russian producer Alexandr Chebankov, better known as Sunner Soul. 'Feeling Of Spirits' is a midtempo shuffler that slowly breaks out into an intricate jazz-funk keys workout, 'Keep Strangers' is a Chic-y stomper, 'Liquid Disco' has distinctly Candido-esque overtones, 'Lay In Low (MF-SB Version' is a mellower, more lounge-y cut with muted space disco stabs and finally 'Simply Around' rocks a funkier, Blaxploitation-like vibe. With all five highly authentic-sounding and avoiding obvious samples, heavy rotation at the likes of Glitterbox and Horse Meat Disco is pretty much guaranteed.

Review: This EP from St Petersburg's Sunner Soul serves up seriously celebratory fare, all of which may result in impromptu kitchen, bedroom or living room dancing. First up is "Easy Breathe", a chunky house style revision of a rubbery, sax-laden disco workout. This is quickly followed by the swirling, orchestral disco bump of "Don't Stop" and the killer disco-funk grooves, spacey noises and razor-sharp riffs of "Really Don't Need". Elsewhere, "He Comes To You" is an addictive, sing-along friendly disco-house workout, while closing cut "Hustling & Boosting" is the most percussive and bass-heavy track on the EP - a thickset romp through tooled-up grooves, filtered orchestration and mazy synthesizer motifs.

Review: Vintage Music chief Sunner Soul invites us to saddle up for another gallop through the funkier and more soulful end of the peak-time disco spectrum. He begins with a chopped-up, gently housed-up bounce through Hamilton Bohannon's most famous tune (the "Start II Dance" rework "Do It All Night"), before whipping his shirt off and dancing topless through the extra-percussive orchestral disco rush of "To The Top". Elsewhere, "When The Night" is a deeper, jazzier and sunnier disco shuffler, "Society of Soul" is swirling, beefed-up take on a much-loved Matsubara classic, and "CTS Funk" is a languid, loved-up disco-soul number.

Review: With "Rhythm & Waves", Russian producer Sunner Soul seems to be daydreaming of sunnier and warmer times. There's certainly something suitably sun-kissed about the title track, which gently beefs up and re-arranges a bouncy, Clavinet-heavy chunk of groovy disco-funk that comes smothered in atmospheric party sounds. The tighter, slap bass-sporting "Universal Disco" explores similar sonic territory, while "Red Hot Disco" sees him layer up the percussion and filter sweeps on a joyful, mid-set workout. Elsewhere, "Let's Somebody Love" is a soaring slice up tooled-up disco-soul and "Get ready With Me" is a fine slab of string-laden boogie brilliance that sounds like it was beamed down from a distant disco planet.

Review: Despite hailing from the frozen wilds of Siberia, Sunner Soul has always offered up music - be it re-edits, unlicensed reworks or original productions - that tends towards the warm, sunny and summery. He's at it again here, heading up a shared EP with the mysterious Sunshine Disco Club (most likely another alias of the same producer) that bristles with smiling positivity from start to finish. Of his three cuts, we're particularly enjoying the life-affirming piano solos and jazzy good-time grooves of "Skyline Boulevard" and the heady disco release of "Insurance Policy", where effects-laden orchestration clusters around a fizzing, hot-to-trot groove. The Sunshine Disco Club then takes over with the sumptuous, soft-touch 80s soul/synth-wave goodness of "Space Jam", before skipping through piano-house/80s electrofunk fusion on the rather fine "System Mode".

Banana Lover - "Stars" - (3:01) 95 BPM
Review: Although technically a various artist compilation, the fifth volume of Vintage Music's series is really the Banana Lover show. He's responsible for four tunes here, the first of which, "Silver Surfer", is a collaboration with Sunner Soul. At 125bpm it's the fastest tune on here and sees the pair fully explore their French Touch influences with lashings of soft filters on dreamy disco loops. Elsewhere "Love Cruise" continues the soft disco house vibes, whilst both "Carefree Summer" and "Stars" evoke the haziness of early Washed Out. Kid Goodman also delivers the deep late 80s Chicago gem "Nice & Slow". Epic.
