Dikso Super Sound Single Volume 1

Massive debut release from Germany´s Dikso imprint. It should come as no surprise that we have a bit of a soft spot for blogs that delevelop into proper labels, as is the case here. Over the past year, Dikso has been sharing some very tasty podcasts and dubbed out disco edits by the likes of Daniel Solar, Marc Poppcke and Andi de Luxe. Head over there if you haven't heard of these guys before.

For their maiden vinyl voyage (commendable in this day and age!), the Dikso crew line up three of the most exciting talents of today's pitched down/beatdown disco movement. Sydney´s Francis Inferno Orchestra makes his first appearance on wax with the incredibly infectious ´So Divine´, a chirpy ´n cheeky midtempo rework of an 80s track (complete with falsetto Boy George type vocals) with big drums and oodles of oomph. We predict great things for FIO this year(keep an eye out for a forthcoming single on Under The Shade and a release on our very own Sleazy Beats)

Next up is Never by "No More Hits" Nicholas. This guy makes some of the heaviest beats in the game, which he here expertly combines with a fat squelchy acidic bassline and chopped up 90s diva wails (I know that last bit sounds a bit questionable but it actually works a real treat). It's a chugfest of the highest order, and a real joy to mix. If you like this, make sure to pick up a copy of his forthcoming single on Kojak Giant Sounds too, another beast of a record.

NYC resident NoRequest drops the tempo to well below 100 BPM for the closing track Jonesin´ for you, a swinging rework with a catchy vocal, big drums and dollops of funk. Wonderful tune that is sure to please the fans of Super Value and Small World Disco edits.

Stellar first release, can't wait to hear what's up next. Limited 12", and a vinyl exclusive, so head over to Juno and treat yourself to a fine slice of funk.

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 …
