Disco Deviance - Do It Nice And Easy [With Love] (Disco Deviance)

Well I for one have been rinsing the Disco Deviance releases to shreds for some time now, I think I've managed to grab all but just a few of their lovely slabs since their '07 debut. The relatively incognito edit label is host to a wide range of artists such as Fat Camp, BC, Pete Herbert, Dicky Trisco, Out in the Sticks, Situation and Ashley Beedle to name a few. All these guys have had success massaging old funk and soul classics in just the right spots, turning them into proper dancefloor burners. I personally like to keep all the Disco Deviance releases in the front of my bag so I know exactly where to reach for big fat, organic, funk and disco superedits when I need em. I have so much time for the label that I used two DD records on my last mix.

Anyways Disco Deviance #10 has just been launched, (coinciding nicely with the 10,000th visitor to Sleazybeats, whoa...) As per usual, this one boasts two hot edits, this time by the legendary electrofunkroots-ster, Greg Wilson. In my humble opinion it's all about the first track: "Do It Nice and Easy (With Love)" that's got me all flustered. You may in fact have already heard this great tune in the past year or so on one of Mr. Wilson's many top Dj mixes that are up on the Cosmic Boogie website. We're pretty happy that it's finally out now on wax for us commoners to play with...

If you're a fan of this kind of stuff like we are, you'll need this record too. Just have a listen. Oh, and be sure to read about all things Greg Wilson-related on his most excellent Electrofunkroots website.

Sleazy Team ~ Best of '16

Jebus, another year gone by already? Time sure flies when the world's going bonkers and the masses are bent on sticking all their eggs in one giant smelly basket and having Farage, The Donald and a host of other lunatics break them all at once while laughing hysterically.

All farcical geo-political madness and neo-patriotic nu-bigotry aside, 2016 was a memorable year for us at SB. We tricked The Popular People's Front - our heroes, the originators! - into doing us the final record in the Black Ops series, which sold out in what seemed a nano-second. After burying the Black Ops project with a sniff and a tear, we launched a new imprint, Make Believe Disco, with French prodigal kid Folamour handling the inaugural release, which, unbelievably, also sold out from the distro on day one.
At the tail-end of the year we sat down in our cabin in the woods, started a fire and got the s'mores going, while looking back on 7 years of Sleazy Beats. We agreed that in spite of our valian…

Caravan - Coarsica EP (Ken Oath)

The inaugural release on Australian imprint Ken Oath is one of the finest bits of plastic I've managed to pick up do far this year. It was Riggles' Slick Like Oil that had me whipping out my AmEx right away, a loopy, sample-heavy basement jam with a killer rubbery bassline, but as often is the case when buying records for one specific tune, the flip ends up being the side you end up playing the most. Donald's House and Low Flung (all new names to me) serve up the delightful kind of delightful contemporary electronic boogie that the likes of Suzanne Kraft and Moon B do so well.

The sophomore effort on Ken Oath, a mini-LP by Caravan called 'Coarsica', is cut from the same boogie cloth and it's really, really good. Six tracks of understated, 80's-tinged electronic boogie to choose from here, none of which would have been out of place on People's Potential Unlimited or Rush Hour's 'Music for Autobahns' compilations. It's not exactly the kind…

Mori Ra - Oriental Forest (Forest Jams)

Recently Guy & Kris asked for support to keep the Sleazy blog running and to bring fresh mojo to the sleazyverse. When Luvless told me about their cry for help I immediately wrote Guy and offered my help.
Some of you might know me from my productions as Martin Hayes for Razor-n-Tape, Rose Records and recently In Any Case Records.
I’ve been reading the blog since the early "gallery of awesome people“ days, to which I actually contributed a picture (mugshot obscured by skimpy knickers, if you have a copy of Frank Booker's record on Sleazy Beats, try and spot me on the cover!). Now let's get crackin' with my first review.
Possibly you’ve never heard of Mori Ra before, but that should change before long. The Osaka-based dj, record collector and producer managed to fly under the radar for a good while, but after a string of fantastic records on Macadam MamboPassport To ParadiseMost Excellent Unlimited and a recent sureshot edit of Yoruba Singers’ Black Pepper (on Left …
