Le Loup - Erotic City EP (Remake Music France)

Oooohh and while we're on the subject of smashingly hot records, there's another one that's seriously blog-worthy that's just been released, this time by Paris' Le Loup, or Leonard Perret to his mom. Despite his ripe age, this guy's making tunes like he's been at it for years. This new release on the UK's Remake Music, entitled 'True Love' has been making its way into many sets recently by many of the DJs in disco/re-edit land, and with good reason.

Two versions of the beast have thankfully been lovingly stamped onto a shiny black plate for us vinyl benders to salivate over. This tasty track comes in two fancy flavours - the original, and a slightly more housed-up Sam Clarence mix, both of which are extremely ace. Beautiful chords complimenting an awesome female vocal that just plain works. Hard to pick a favourite here but after a few listens I think the original will take it for me due to its slightly sleazier tempo and that killer vocal. Flip it over for a handy Le Loup version of Erotic City too, for that right time and place which simply completes the package perfectly.

True Love by Le Loup

Pick up this stellar record here and place it in the bag/on the turntable, and be on the lookout for more fresh output by both Sam Clarence and Le Loup, as we're pretty sure they've got some bits in the pipes you won't want to miss.

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 …
