The latest comes courtesy of fellow Saint Petersburg native Sun Rhythms, a previously unheralded DJ/producer whose first EP includes sparkling, afternoon-ready re-edits of all manner of tasty cuts.

He begins by cannily looping, extending and rearranging a glassy-eyed, boogie-era ’80s soul gem (the squelchy bass, slick vocals and squiggly synths of ‘Better To Love’), before adding low-end weight to an eccentric, off-kilter Latin disco stomper (‘Torro La Fiesta’). ‘One Day Happiness’ is a lusciously sun-kissed rearrangement of a colourful

European deep house gem from the turn of the ’90s, while ‘Out Away’ is a piano and vibraphone-laden dance through dream house pastures.

In a word: lovely!
