Matt Moroder - Secret Secret (Little Leaf)

Massive tune on the B side of this first outing of new German label Little Leaf by Glossy Edits' Matt Moroder. According to the release notes it is a rework of a big 70s tune, though I have to admit I have no idea what the source material is. The basic idea of 'Secret Secret' is actually rather simple. Loopy, heavy, messy drums (think Mark E in his Jisco years), chunky percussion that really gets you in headnod mode and some gritty guitar licks make it a most hypnothising ride. After a a few minutes a vocal loop makes its entrance and things get a bit psychedelic with spacy synth lines and trippy keys. Simple, maybe, but incredibly effective and engaging. I'm sure this will work a treat when played at the right moment.

Comes in a really nice screen printed sleeve and is a vinyl only affair. Oh yeah, before I forget, the A side of the record is an edit of a latin disco number by Nelue that isn't half bad either, but it simply is no match for the sheer awesomeness of Secret Secret. Run out and buy, these will be gone before you know it. One of the heaviest tracks I've heard this year. Tidy.

  2. This is a re-edit of "Secret Life of Arabia" by David Bowie off of the Heroes LP. The end of that song is magic. This is an extension of it.

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 …
