Cisco Cisco - If You Want Me (Apersonal)

We haven't heard much about the Spanish disco or deep house scene..often when we think of Spanish dance music, quality underground stuff doesn't exactly spring to mind. But when we heard the new Trujillo release on Barcelona's Apersonal Music 001 release that dropped a month or so ago featuring the talents of Venezuelan don Trujillo, along with heavy hitter remixes by the likes of Social Disco Club and Mark E needless to say we were pleasantly surprised. Back with a vengeance the newbie imprint drops it's sophomore release in top form with this debut ep by Portugal's Cisco Cisco, entitled If You Want Me.

The main cut If You Want Me comes in two flavours, the original of which is my pick of the pack. Simply a gorgeous tune, it starts off tidy and slow, hooking you straight away, then chugs and rises, picking up new elements that add spice and dollops of flair; like cut up vocal snips, electronic organ stabs and snappy snares complete this oh-so-sweet package for me. This is followed up by the techier Jay Shepheard mix, which is also great but it's this original that will get all the plays on my end. On the flip Giro Disco is similarly ace, also pitched nicely to perfection. More mesmerizing cutup vocals, prodding bass and crisp drums comprise another belter of a track that's ready to ride a slow and sweaty dancefloor groove until the early morning hours.

Pop this one into your cart & keep a close watch on Cisco Cisco as well as Apersonal, who are releasing some seriously exciting music. Highly recommended.

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 …
