Third Time - (6:39) 98 BPM
   
After The Rain (Get Up) - (5:38) 120 BPM
Review: Saint Petersburg's Sunner Soul AKA Alexander Chebankov serves up five looping instrumental or near-instrumental disco and funk groovers here. 'Groove Express' centres around a walking bassline that's married to handclaps, barely-there snatches of spoken male vocal and the occasional brass fanfare, 'Kind Of Town' has a more sumptuous, Earth Wind & Fire-ish feel and 'There's No Stoppin' is an authentically late 70s-sounding disco workout complete with soaring strings. 'Third Time' then provides a moment's laidback jazz-funk respite, before the lavish n' lounge-y 'After The Rain' plays us out with its blend of soaring strings, Moog-y synths and familiar "get up!" vocal shouts.

Review: St Petersburg-based Sunner Soul AKA Alexandr Chebankov brings us the 14th installment in this long-running compilation series from his Vintage Music label. As with previous volumes, the emphasis is on authentically late 70s/early 80s-sounding disco and boogie jams that blur the line between "re-edit" and "sample-based", with a marked preference for tough, eyes-down groovers and slinky, meandering instrumental workouts rather than podium-friendly peaktime scream-alongs. In practice, this means that 'Vol 14' packs plenty of fresh ammo for your disco sets, even it there aren't too many tracks that'll jump out and grab you by the vitals on first hearing.

Review: Sunner Soul's re-edits have always tended towards the sensual and sexy, but he seems to have taken it up a notch on the Seduction EP, a fine collection of reworks of suitably tender and loved-up disco and boogie cuts. He begins in deep disco/deep house fusion mode on the luscious 'Mysteries of the Soul', before strutting into 80s soul-goes-house mode on 'Got To Get Back'. Slow grooves, languid synth solos and breezy horns are the order of the day on the smooth but elastic 'LMBT', while 'Not Easy' is a tidy rearrangement of an early 80s disco gem. Finally, 'Seduction' is a funk-fuelled discoid invitation to slip into something more comfortable and get between the sheets.

Review: If it's authentically 70s-sounding disco grooves you seek, then know that nothing in this reviewer's Juno inbox this week has come closer than this five-tracker from Sunner Soul. The rest of the world may currently be obsessed with all things cosmic and Italo, but the St Petersburg native (here, at least) is still all about the handclaps, whoops, strings, cowbells, and jive-talkin' vocal snatches. All five near-instrumental cuts are quite similar in approach, but check out 'Smooth Surface' for a full-phat bassline and fine Moog-y sounds, and 'Body Groove' for a lil' boogie-esque squelch and some excellent 'pyoww! pyoww!' stabs.

Review: St Petersburg's Alexander Chebankov, better known as Sunner Soul, returns with an EP on his own Vintage Music label that packs in five lively, authentically late 70s-sounding disco jams. 'I Can Feel It' gets the ball rolling, centring around a funk bass loop that's augmented by crowd noise and snatches of sampled dialogue. The title track is a more smooth-rollin' affair with warm, lounge-y keys front and centre and 'Secret Agent' has a kitschy, almost Deee-Lite-ish feel, before we're played out by a brace of near-instrumental summer groovers, 'Got 2 B U' and 'Super Ice Cream'.

Review: Russian nu-disco stalwart Sunner Soul - St Petersburg-based Alexandr Chebankov - returns with a five-tracker on his own Vintage Music Label. The title track is a rolling disco-funk groove with added crowd/party noise, 'From Your Love' sports a soulful male vocal and some killer space disco stabs, 'Get On Up' rocks fine jazzy keys, 'Sunshine Hotel' is obviously a reworking of Richard T Bear's 1978 disco classic and 'Ghost Dance' plays us out on a lively, string-drenched disco-house tip. All five are playable but those pyeow! stabs and tinklin' ivories (respectively) nudge 'From Your Love' and 'Get On Up' ahead of the pack.

Review: With seemingly no online presence, exactly who's behind The Sunshine Disco Club isn't clear, but on this EP he/she/they serve up nine cuts coming mostly from the synthier, more spangly-sparkly end of the nu-disco spectrum - the album wouldn't have sounded out of place on Nang, for instance. 'Space Jam' brings the 80s soundtrack vibes, 'Sweet Journey (Synth Jam)' is aptly subtitled, 'Morning Exercise' has a nagging Euro-style synth hook, while cuts like 'Pleasure Boat' and 'Electronic Romance' take us into straight-up boogie territory. There's perhaps no clear standout but the EP, which approaches album length, is definitely one to check all the same.

Review: Five very solid disco/disco-house cuts here from Sunner Soul. The title track is a sumptuous affair with strings, a phat-ass bassline, "I need you" female vocal snips and some fine space disco stabs, 'Dance Symphony' is a summery jam with a Loleatta vocal bite and mucho filter action, 'Let's Stay Together' finds us in 80s boogie territory (with more of those killer stabs to boot), 'Must Be Amour' harks back to the filter disco sound of the late 90s/early 00s and closer 'Oneness Of Soul' is a mellower cut with a dubby bassline and gently tinkling jazz ivories. Classy stuff all round.

The Sunshine Disco Club - "Softly Infusion" - (6:14) 116 BPM
Review: Siberia's Alexandr Chebankov, AKA Sunner Soul, covers quite a range of contemporary disco ground across a mere five tracks here. The first two, 'Carefully Crafted' and 'Get Your Boogie', come from the more funk-fuelled end of the nu-disco spectrum, with phat-ass b-lines and, on the latter, chanted vox and wukka-wukking geetars. 'No One Can Like I Do' then takes us into Hed Kandi-esque disco-house territory, whlle 'Sweet Stuff Memories' and 'Softly Infusion' itself (the latter credited to The Sunshine Disco Club) are slightly deeper cuts that'll go down well wherever soulful house and broken beat/nu-jazz are played.

Review: Five very serviceable disco tracks/re-edits here from Siberian producer Alexandr Chebankov, AKA Sunner Soul, coming on his own Vintage Music label. 'Don't Stop My Love' reworks Passion's 1982 Prelude gem of the same name, while 'What Cha Gonna Do' draws on the Stephanie Mills classic and 'Sunny Disco' lifts a snatch of (female) vocal from one of the thousands of covers of the Bobby Hebb song. Elsewhere, 'Lazy Sunset' and 'Do It Again' are presumably also re-edits, though what they're re-edits of we couldn't tell you - probably best not to worry about that, just get out under that mirrorball and enjoy!

Review: Vintage Music, helmed by Russian re-editor, remixer and producer Sunner Soul, has proved to be one of the more reliable edit-focused imprints over the last few years, delivering tidily tooled-up reworks that are rarely less than impeccably produced. We can confirm that the label's standards remain high on its latest missive, an expansive set headed up by Sunner Soul himself. He begins by turning a 1982 Gwen McRae heater into a bouncy chunk of boogie-house warmth ("Burning On The Dancefloor"), before successfully tweaking a soulful electrofunk workout ("Pump Up The Boogie") and a jazz-funk flavoured summery treat ("Sea Creatures"). Elsewhere, he joins forces with Kirton to adjust an '80s soul dancefloor smash ("Your Love"), while The Sunshine Disco Club weighs in with the rubbery synth-funk bliss of "Electronic Romance".

Review: As his popular Vintage Music label enters its eleventh year, Sunner Soul has decided to serve up a 13th compilation of reworked good-time grooves, summery slow jams and string-laden boogie badness. There's much to admire across the 17 tracks, from the gently tooled up orchestral disco shuffle of opener "All Right" and the drowsy, thickset mid-afternoon deep house haziness of "Broers Vergadering", to the electric piano solo-laden, jazz-funk-goes-house goodness of "Feeling of Spirits", to the head-nodding, pitched-down disco-soul swirl of "Make It Better", which sounds like something the Revenge would have released on early noughties imprint Instruments of Rapture.

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: 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".

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.

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.

While he built his career on summery, sun-kissed slo-mo revisions and baggy, near Balearic workouts, the material here is almost all energetic, peak-time ready and gleefully celebratory. Amongst the many highlights you'll find the shirts-off disco camp of "Bad Boys Disco", the gently housed-up deep disco-blues of "Couldn't Tell You", the Salsoul-goes-house bump of "Dr Love", the punchy horns, swirling strings and rubbery grooves of "Flying Violins" and the super-sweet disco-house bump of "The Mystery of Loops".

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.

'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: 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.

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: Via his Vintage Music imprint, Sunner Soul man Alexandr Chebankov keeps serving up the hits. Here he gathers together another bumper selection of seductive sunshine slow jams and dancefloor-ready goodtime grooves to soundtrack your summer. Naturally, there are plenty of his warm, sample-heavy productions and re-edits present (our favourites include the jazzy disco rush of "Summertime", his gentle and groovy rework of much-loved Letta Mbulu Balearic fave "Normalizo" and the bumpin', bass-heavy disco house bustle of "Disco Orchestra"), alongside similarly impressive outings from Kid Goodman (the sublime '80s house revision "Nice and Slow"), Lolita Knox (a tooled-up flip of a Cheryl Lynn anthem) and the Sunshine Disco Club (the Balearic dancefloor breeze of "Morning Exercise").

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: 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: Traditionally, Sunner Soul's loopy, loved-up disco, soul and boogie revisions have tended towards the slow and sensual. This time round, though, the Vintage Music boss is targeting peak-time dancefloors, starting with the chunky, bass-heavy disco-house dustiness of "What Are You Waiting For". He also serves up a mid-tempo chunk of disco-sampling, sub-heavy deep house wooziness (the ace "Ready To Pump") and a rolling, 110 BPM chunk of orchestral disco chunkiness ("Ultrafunk Orchestra"). The EP also includes a tasty bonus in the shape of The Sunshine Disco Club's "Sweet Journey (Synth Jam)", where warm pianos and winding, D-Train style synth solos rise above a dusty, spaced-out groove.

Review: More from Vintage Music main man Sunner Soul, whose tooled-up re-edits are rarely less than delicious. The headline attraction on the Russian producer's latest EP is arguably "Evening of Love", a rubbery, swinging and bass-heavy filter-disco revision of a soaring disco classic produced in association with Good Ingredient. There are, of course, plenty of reasons to be cheerful to be found elsewhere across the EP, from the drowsy, bluesy bump of "Couldn't Tell You" and the bustling disco roll of "Disco Orchestra", to the jammed-out electric piano riffs, filtered sample loops and bouncy beats of disco-funk closing cut "Groove On".

Review: Saint Petersburg scene stalwart Sunner Soul once again opens up the vaults of his Vintage Music imprint and serves up a selection of solid summery grooves, soul-flecked grooves, disco-charged jams and intoxicating, floor-friendly re-rubs. The bulk of the material comes from the man himself, with highlights including the breezy, horn-toting sunshine funk warmth of "Rescue of Time", the starry jazz-funk synths and rubbery house grooves of "Swindle Mode" and the loopy, synth-laden boogie-house bump of "Music Freak". Elsewhere, Lolita Kox's "I Think I Love You" is a deliciously beefed-up and celebratory rework of a stone cold disco classic and Scruscru's "Burevestnik" is a deliciously swinging, full-throttle take on a jazzy disco-funk obscurity.

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.

Meanwhile last year's critically received newcomer Scruscru gets busy with a delicious sample over some chunky-assed jacking beats. Can you dig it?

Review: Sunner Soul is from Saint Petersburg, but claims that his roots are drawn from Germany. The 30 year old further asserts that disco music was played at home from a young age, so it is about more than just music. 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).

Volume one begins with a thrillingly woozy, synthesizer-heavy ambient intro (the notably trippy "Wave"), before the experienced Russian producer unveils a series of typically warm, sunny and ear-pleasing deep house workouts. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Review: Sunner Soul is clearly determined to start 2017 in a positive mood. His first EP of the year urges us to have a Good Time, with the producer doing his bit to spread sunshine via a string of impressively warm and summery re-edits. 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: Russia's finest disco dude, Sunner Soul, sticks with own Vintage Music label for the Make It Better EP. 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: Sunner Soul presents a seventh compilation of highlights from his edit-minded Vintage Music label. While there is one killer cut by Banana Lover - the slow house style disco-funk chugger "Just Like That" - it's pretty much a showcase for the talented Russian's own reworks. He's often best when operating at a slower tempo, and many of the collection's highlights - the fliter-rich horizontal soul of "Meeting With The Sea", the tasty Will Powers rework "Only You", sensual "Love Yoy Anyway", and sleazy, sax-laden "Body Language", for starters - offer genuinely dancefloor moments that barely get above 100bpm. Of course, there are some high tempo disco bangers to enjoy, including the excellent "Come On A Dance" and "Smooth Riding".

Got The Floor - (5:32) 114 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
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.

Happy - (5:17) 115 BPM
   
All Right - (5:13) 115 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
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.

Sunner Soul vs Banana Lover - "Silver Surfer" - (4:14) 125 BPM

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.

Review: Here label boss Sunner Soul shares the limelight with pa Lachetto Beats for a split EP. Not only are the tunes shared, but so too are the influences. Normally sticklers for disco, here they embrace retro hip-hop for what is essentially a compilation of short loops and beats. LB gets the lion's share of the tracks with the Avalanches-esque choppy soul of "Spring Cat", the trippy stoner beats of "Midnight" and the filtered 70s lament "She". SS meanwhile delivers the sparse loungey funk of "Soul Beats" and the start-stop 90s nead-nodder "Raw Beats". New year, new direction.
