The Groovers - Chicken Noodles (Sad Ghost Remix)

We don't cover many digital releases on these pages. It's not that we're snobs (well maybe a little) but there's just too much stuff coming out these days to really keep track of what's going on in digital disco land. I'm really glad we got sent the Sad Ghost Remix of The Groovers' Chicken Noodle release that hit Juno Download a few days ago though. Sad Ghost is the alter ego of Another Night on Earth editor in chief Chris Keys, whose blog has been our favorite musical hangout for years now. We already knew Chris had a fine ear for melodies and song structures (his recent edit of Flower - For Real on American Standard is one of those tracks I simply can not stop playing), but here he showcases his talent for the deepest deephouse.

Despite the really unimaginative name (seriously, "the Groovers" is the best these guys could come up with?) the original is an incredibly deep and slow, erm, deephouser, with loads of oomph and acidic synths. It's mesmerizing, it's ace. The Sad Ghost remix retains the solid groove of the original, but its added claps, swirly bits and deep pads work a real treat. Close your eyes and it sounds a little like Charles Webster and Manuel Tur just made a tune together and then decided to drop the tempo to 96 BPM. Which is definately a good thing. Don't sleep on this. Have a listen to the Sad Ghost remix here:

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 …
