Review: This is number 15 in the series, which means most self-respecting disco buyers will have a good idea what to expect here as St Petersburg-based Sunner Soul (AKA Alexander Chebankov) serves up 15 of his recent productions for his own Vintage Music label. As a scroll through past reviews will confirm, Chebankov's work has spanned a variety of disco- and funk-driven styles over the years, but after a couple of more late 70s-sounding tracks at the start it's largely (though not exclusively) 80s-inspired, boogie-esque grooves that predominate this time out. There's no clear, head-and-shoulders standout to these ears, but 'Super Ice Cream' and 'No One Can Like I Do' would be good places to start...

The Sunshine Disco Club - "Midnight Funk" (Sunner Soul mix) - (5:46) 124 BPM
Review: Five cuts from scene stalwart Sunner Soul here that, collectively, sit somewhere between disco-house, funk, 80s boogie and straight-up 70s disco, with hints of jazz thrown in here and there for good measure! The dense, shuffly and 70s-tastic 'Disco Extravaganza' leads the charge, followed by the laidback boogie vibes of 'Make It Real' and the rawer funk of 'Phase Groove'. 'Rhythm Tape Beat' is another dense, jazz-tinged roller with a bassline that nods cheekily to 'Disco Inferno', while finally 'Midnight Funk' plays us out on a euphoric, end-of-night kinda tip. Very solid stuff all round.

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.

Seduction - (5:38) 122 BPM
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.

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

Banana Lover - "Carefree Summer" (feat Sheriff) - (3:49) 90 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: 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: 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.

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: The latest missive from the Editorial camp is something of a summery treat, with a sextet of producers taking it turns to lay down warm and inviting dancefloor treats, First up is Matt Hughes, whose "Lonestar" joins the dots between eyes-closed deep house and rich, bass-heavy Balearic disco. Hotmood lays down a chunk of horn-heavy, party-hearty disco house, while Massimo Vanoni marinades a sweet, sun-kissed disco cut in several gallons of tasty rum punch. Elsewhere, Sunner Soul works the filters hard on the low-slung disco house shuffler "Good Parts", I Gemin gets all sweaty and loopy on "Disco Fevah", and Andy Buchan does a great job reinventing an 80s synth-pop cut as a saucer-eyed slab of peak-time goodness.

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: 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: 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.

Predictably, there's much to enjoy, from the baggy, organ-and-guitar heavy deep disco goodness of Tonbe's "Letter From The Past", to the horizontal listening pleasures of Sunner Soul's slo-mo surprise "Caribbean Wind". In between, you'll find a range of tasty, floor-friendly morsels, including the delay-laden piano party of SonicVibe's "No Cure" and the rolling disco heaviness of Martin Hayes' "Mesmerized".

Review: For as long as any of us can remember, the Editorial label has led the way in multi-artist re-edit EPs. Their latest missive is, unsurprisingly, a bit of a Christmas cracker. Tomas Malo kicks things off with "Welcome Distraction", a filter disco-house revision of Escort's 2006 revivalist disco gem "Starlight", before label regulars Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee drop the ultra-positive, disco-with-bells-on fun of "Your House Tonite". Pontchatrain gets "Nasty" with a chunk of righteous, floor-friendly disco-rock/house fusion, Sunner Soul delivers some horn-totin' disco-funk brilliance, and P-Sol confirms a "Luv 2 Dance" by cutting up a familiar old disco staple. As for Mars, he heads for the end-of-night close dance via sensual R&B vocals, nods to P-funk and some superbly sumptuous synths.

Starting out with the sublime deep soul of Slow Steps "We Won't Have To Cry No More (re-work)" they then launch into Los Angeles' Dino (yes, not Gino!) Soccio's "West Athena Funk" which stays on the soul train for a while until the epic boogie drama of Rayko's "Magic Number" ups the tempo, good and proper. Danny Deluxe serves up some summery Balearic vibes on "The Best Years" but they leave the best for last with Sunner Souls' "Show Me Your Love", a funky disco house groove for late night fashion crowds, which is ironically by a Siberian producer! We can dig it!

That said, the majority of tunes here go to SS, but hey, it is his label. There's three re-edits here, all plump and juicy with funky vintage bass, laid back beats and ever so familiar vocals. Our favourite is the thoroughly synthetic slap bass frenzy of "State and Manhattan". Banana Lover's contribution is a clever chillwave rework of Come Into My Life by Joyce Sims.

The Sunlight Disco Band step up to handle the other three tunes here: the light and breezy, almost French touch-esque "Streetlight", the looped exoticism of "Renaissance Hotel" and the quirky 80s-style party romp "Morning Exercise".

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: It's been a while since Siberian disco producer Sunner Soul has graced us with any new material. Well now we have a new label sampler, and this time he's sharing it with his old pal Banana Lover. The latter provides "Disco Sirens" a rolling grower based around some looped funk guitar samples, and "Touch You", in conjunction with SS, which sounds like something Chris Rea might have played in Ibiza back in 1987. It's all Sunner Soul from here on in - including the piano 'n claps of "Come On And Dance" and the slo-mo funk of "French Crime Jazz'.

Review: Russian disco and edits label Vintage Music is still doing the business good and proper. As said previously, living in Siberia doesn't stop these guys living a sun kissed dream and more power to them! This time it's home grown talent Sunner Soul appearing for the most part, mining the kind of smooth 70's soul funk samples that even Kenny Dixon Jr. would approve of. We're particularly keen on the sultry Rhodes and guitar licks of "Do It For My Brother" and the oh so uplifting "Smooth Riding". Liner offers us "Ocean" but hang on; it's Sunner Soul's edit and it's brilliant too; that vocoder, wow!

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.

Hang On - (5:16) 114 BPM
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.

Disco Retreat - (5:07) 123 BPM
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.

Sampling As An Art
Tango & Cash - (3:29) 120 BPM
Flip Side Of The Dark - (4:26) 120 BPM
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.

Played by: Vincent Inc
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".

Get Back - (5:42) 120 BPM
Feel That - (4:48) 122 BPM
Rewind - (4:12) 118 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
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.

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: 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: Here we have the second release of the year from our favourite Russian disco don, Sunner Soul. He's taking it mellow for January, hence the title "Slow Down EP". There are three slinky cuts to enjoy, two of which are by the man himself, with the title track being a delicious slice of four to the floor retro boogie, and "Loveline" rocking the percussion-heavy spacey funk vibe. 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: Whoever heard of a Siberian heat wave? Well Russia's Sunner Soul is just that - tirelessly providing warm and summery disco cuts from his icy bolthole. Here on the Lowdown EP we get four more of his delicious instalments. 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: 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: 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.

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).

Review: Sunner Soul's latest project, Deep Connections, is being released in a number of installments. 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.
