Prince Language/Donald Bumps - Don't Stop The Macho (Editions Disco)

There's a hot new little record that just dropped a couple of days ago that's got us tickled here at Sleazy HQ. The always classy and on-point Editions Disco imprint serves up a couple of wicked new disco edits by my one of my favourite Nuyorkinan disco heads Prince Language (DJ Language). This cat has been mighty busy these days with re-rubs and mixes for countless bands and other artists which is why we haven't heard from him in a good minute. He's teamed up this time with Donald Bumps (a new name for me) to bring us 'Don't Stop The Macho', a great two tracker of different feelgood disco.

The title track is the Prince Language cut - a moody, dark and sweaty number with a great bassline and fantastic male vocal that fans of Georgio Moroder and Gino Soccio will likely lean hard towards. We're then hit with an opposite feeling tune on the b-side as Donald Bump dices up a great female vocal track, with my pick of the two 'Nah, That's Hot'. Here, this guy pumps the echo to the max on the funky soul-claps, throws mass reverb on the guitar and voila, we've got ourselves a rocking dubby little number, perhaps a-la "Idjut Boys sound". It's no wonder that ths record has been getting the plays from none other than those funky Idjuts, along with countless others like the always inspiring Norwegian boys (Terje, Prins and Lindstrøm), and the always exciting DJ Harvey.

Pick up this fantastic piece of wax before too late here, cause these Editions Disco records sell out often enough!

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 …
