Sleazy Beats Recording 001 - Win a free Test Pressing!



We're thrilled to announce the launch of our very own imprint, Sleazy Beats Recordings. We've covered so many great records and met so many great artists through these pages, settting up a label and putting out some of that dreamy lo-slung beatdown disco we love so much seemed like a logical progression.

We're extremely pleased to report we managed to get Canadian superman Eddie C on board for our maiden voyage. Eddie's recent releases on Jisco, Flashback, Wolf Music and Seven Inches of Love were all incredible and got him some much deserved attention in disco/nu disco circles. Luckily, Eddie saved his best bits for us: the gloriously deep & dreamy 9-minute adventure that is Space Cadet, the heavy slo-mo funk of Get Down and finally the midtempo disco bomb 'One With the Stars', all on one shiny black 12" that will be out in a week or two. It's already being charted by the likes of LTJ X-Perience and Ali from OOFT and rumour has it Cottam is playing 'One With The Stars' all over the place.

Meanwhile, have Juno send you an e-mail once they get it in



That's not all though: we have a Test Pressing of SBR001 to give away to one lucky reader. Simply tell us why you think you deserve to get your hands on the record, and we'll pick the most original/heartfelt/cringeworthy plea and send it over to you. The winner will be announced in one week.

  2. Well, Eddie C is one of my fave producers. Would love to get my hands on this one...deep mid-tempo chuggers aren't the norm here in Chicago...but that's all I push when I get the opportunity to spin...I only spin vinyl as well...people need to recognize..love the blog BTW, I'm thinking of starting my own beat down collective here in the Chi. Thanks for the inspiration !!!

  3. I live in Portland, Oregon where it rains non-stop 8 months a year. I'm unemployed. I have no money, car, girlfriend, or health insurance. Music is the only thing that's keeps my spirits up these days. Can you spare a 12" to help a brother out?

  4. Because I was born without tastebuds, it heightend my taste in music. And because your new imprint looks to be shaping up to release quality disco, deep grooves (which I play)I think it should be me that recieves a test pressing which I promise to play out to maximum effect at my events here in the North east England. Plus considering Eddie C has not paid my sister any maintainence money for their lovechild...I think it only fair I try and get something back for her!!!

    Thanks, Adrian

  6. Thanks for the heartfelt stories guys, we picked our winner yesterday. Matt from Oregon seems to need a little sunshine in his life, maybe this record will help a little.

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 …
