Stupid Human - Ah You're Welcome (Stupid Human 002)

Swamp Funk, Stupid Human's debut release that came out a few months ago was an instant hit in the disco/re-edit scene, and rightfully so - if you missed it make sure to drop whatever it is you're doing and run out to your nearest recordstore, Swamp Funk is a ridiculously infectious rework of an obscure vocal track with dirty claps, oodles of oomph and a fair bit of southern grit.

Happy to see the next episode in the Stupid Human saga rear its lovely head, featuring four new rerubs. Things start off rather nicely with Ahh You're Welcome, a dubby take on Rufus and Chaka Khan's Stop On By with a juicy kick and a steady groove. Leo Zero did an edit of the same track for the Popular People's Front Limited Series. That record is A: rare as hen's teeth and B: way too short, so I'm happy as can be "l'Homme Stupide" decided to give it a sonic makeover. Still Alive, also on the A is a skit of a choir chanting something about being alive. I'm sure it could work as an end of set type track but I'm not the greatest fan of skits and tings on 12" (advice for all label owners, leave out the interludes, bonus beats and acapellas and press tracks on 45 rpm).

On the B side, Far Out Gypsy follows the same pattern as Swamp Funk: a lush midtempo southern sounding/harmonica track with a truckload of bottom end and a badass groove, simply irresistable. A straight Head rounds off the EP nicely with its 80s sounding swirly filters, synths and androgynous vocals. Superclassy package, and the center sticker is another true piece of art, very fresh.

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 …
