Eddie C - Between Now And Then (Endless Flight)

I swear to you... the Sleazy Beats blog is not owned by Canadian DJ and producer Eddie C. This may shock some people, as we tend to talk about him as if he is the next messiah. I tell you that we just can't help it. We love his music that much, and want to see it reach as many ears as possible.

This is why we are here today to point you towards Eddie's newest 12". This one has been released on the Japanese record label Mule Musiq's offshoot known as Endless Flight. On this record we are offered four sublime cuts. All of them fall into that groovy midtempo range that we freak about over here.

The title cut, 'Between Now And Then', has this hypnotic synthesizer that just washes over you and makes you forget all your troubles. Then there is 'You Know How', which observant fans of this artist will recognize as being previously released on a Seven Inches Of Love record (and featured prominently on Cole Medina's 'Disk Union Mix', mentioned many times on these pages). Now you can get this gem in the somewhat easier-to-manipulate 12" format.

Flip the record to find another two party rockers. 'The Show Is Over' might be my pick of the bunch. The vocals, the horn stabs, and that killer just oozes with the sort of vibe I am always looking for. He finishes off the record with 'Gimme Your Dub', which as the name implies is a spaced-out slow jam that will most certainly find its place at the beginning and end of many nights and DJ sets.

The wax is in stores now, folks. Grab your very own copy HERE.

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 …
