Social Disco Club - Man Of Magic (Hands Of Time)


Brand spanking new record by the talented Portuguese producer Social Disco Club, aka Humberto Matias, whom you may know from other top ventures on imprints like Bear Funk and Mindless Boogie. Out now on the hot new UK label, Hands of Time - this excellent two tracker features two cracking disco edits that wouldn't seem out of place in dj sets by big disco dons like Ray Mang, Todd Terje, Lovefingers etc. In fact I'm pretty sure I've heard the title track 'Man of Magic' on a recent set by Mr. Mang already.

This first tune hooks you with a great horn section that echoes the super catchy lyrics and really swell strings sewn together so well like only SDC can do. A seriously great track, very animated and loads of fun to listen to. The second tune 'Sandwich Love' is probably the pick of the litter for me here, however, I'm kind of a sucker for a nice flute I think. This track sounds a little more 'serious' if that makes any sense, more mysterious. Another disco corker, that has a little heavier disco beat than the first. A soothing vocal whispering in the background, cosmic space noises and then blam, another flock of disco babes doin their thing. Another amazing release by Social Disco Club...and keep em peeled for more goodies on Hands of Time, word on the street is that they've got some real gems in the pipes a comin'.

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 …
