Whiskey Disco - Boogie Bodega



The fifth release on Sleazy McQueen's classy Whiskey Disco imprint is a downright clusterbomb. Cosmic Boogie starts things off with the deliciously slow and soulful 'How can you say goodbye', one of those tracks that even your gran will like. The real boogie juices start flowing once Rayko (one of Soundcloud's current darlings, check out his page, he has loads of great bits up there at the moment) mans the controls. His S&M (Sexy Music) is a proper chunk of 80s quirky boogie with wonky synths, sharp drums and inane vocals. Drop this at the right moment and the floor will be yours to keep.

On the flip, Anthony Mansfield reworks 'Hercules', a most tasty 70s vocal blaxploitation jazzfunk track. Mr Mansfield wields the editing blade with predictable style and grace, and keeps the warm, hazy vibe of the track in tact. Not one for the clubs, but a perfect track for bars, restaurants and outdoor parties. A Whiskey Disco party is not complete without an appearance by owner Sleazy McQueen, who transforms Stevie Wonders rather cheesy Do I Do in a chunky bit of dancefloor fodder. The added squelching bassline and heavy drums work a treat and make this track the pick of the crop for me. Don't take my word for it though, check it out here:

In a recent interview with the kind people over at Deepcast, we predicted great things for all things Boogie in 2011. Whiskey Disco might just be leading the pack with this fine release.

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 …
