Deymare - Talking About Your Love (Boe Recordings)

Since its inception in 2007, London's Boe Recordings has firmly established itself as a staple imprint for simply spectacular house music with a range of influences. Boe honcho Ben Parkinson has made the clever move to sign tracks that often fly deceptively below the radar, with material from Iron Curtis, Ladzinski and Leif to name a few; as such Boe Recordings has proven to be a consistent tag for those who like it deep, but with raw emotion and authority. The forthcoming BOE009 release is one that we're quite excited about, as it incorporates a bit more of a sound that we have come to love and cherish here at SBR, this time by Finnish producer Deymare. His Talking About Your Love Ep is a sublime 4 tracker of slightly pitched down and edgy deepstuff that's still aimed towards a heady dancefloor.

The A side kicks things of properly with my pick 'Your Love' - a crunchy, off-center, rich & rhodesy deephouse workout with heavily layered drums and a great vocal, with a seemingly reminiscent nod to a Moodyman or perhaps Theo Parish. A most excellent bit of tune that will get tons of plays from myself. Next, 'Talking About That' pitches things down a bit and rolls along with a distorted airy bassline amidst tambourines, guitar stab and ever-so-slight keys. A clever vocal of an interview about record collecting is an easy deal sealer here.

On the B, 'Tomorrow Was Yesterday' features a delightfully tasty piano cut; a bright and warm mood goin on here with a subtly ascending acidline squeaking in mid way that really compliments the killer bassline and makes for a boss tune; a perfect go-to cut for those patio gigs this upcoming indian summer. Finally, speaking of boss tunes, label head Ben Boe gets his fingers dirty with his take on 'Talking About That'. Keeping things gritty and raw, he strips it down but leaves the vocal intact, a move that brings out the bassline and creates a scorcher of a deep tune that I'd go so far to say is even better than the original.

Have a listen to Your Love:

The wax'll be in shops on October 4th, keep em' peeled for it and no doubt more exquisite tunes out of the Boe Recordings camp.

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 …
