Eddie C - Sleazotica (Kolour Limited)

Eddie C, The Canadian crownprince of beatdown disco, strikes again with a magnificent EP on a new offshoot of the most classy Kolour imprint (which has been our favorite American deephouse label for years now). The Kolour crew snapped up three of Eddie´s tracks for a special Kolour Limited 12" (pretty blue vinyl!), and boy what a treat this record is. Sleazotica on the A side is the kind of lush, pitched down moody 9-minute journey (BPM well under 90) only Eddie can make. On the flip we get ´A Simple Song´, a midtempo chugger wrapped around a vocal loop trying to convince us it´s just a simple song. Yeah right, simple as in ridiculously groovy. My pick of the bunch is the third track on the EP though, ´Rising´, which is a sublime rework of Keni Burke´s Rising to the Top. Eddie has sprinkled his magic dust all over this one and showcases exactly why he´s the hottest name in beatdown disco land.

Fantastic record on a fantastic label, and Eddie´s debut on an American imprint. You know the drill by now, buy this beast before the discogs vultures charge you silly amounts for a knackered copy. Oh and did I mention it comes on gorgeous blue vinyl yet? Just so you know, MP3s don´t come with colours...
