Henry Greenwood - Henry's Edits Volume 1

I have to be honest with you...I'm not too familiar with the name Henry Greenwood. It doesn't ring any bells. Not like, say, UK legend DJ Greg Wilson. Now that is a name I know and trust. Greg only drops the finest of party tracks. The ones that get the people up and the dance floor moving. It is rare that I hear this DJ play something that I would not consider playing myself.

I'm also a sucker for a great edit. And lately, Greg has been dropping a sweet edit into his DJ sets of Sharon Brown's 'I Specialize In Love'. At the height of a good time, I dare a crowd not to move to this one. It really adds a nice bottom end thump and extends a tune that we know and love. A tune we're familiar with... unlike the name Henry Greenwood.

Well, perhaps that will soon change. It turns out that the edit in question is by our mystery man Henry. He has launched his record label Henry's Edits which just recently hit shelves. I'm hearing a lot of that early 80's disco sound here, and I like it. And there is a lot more to explore over at Henry's SoundCloud page. Like most great artists, some of it I question, and some of it I think is just wonderful.

Since we're being honest, I'm not sure that all four of the cuts offered on this vinyl are a 100% slam dunk for me...but clearly there is a talent here that needs to be closely monitored. So, if you have your own dance floor that needs to be up and moved, you can grab Volume 1 of Henry's edit series here at Juno while they still have some copies left.

Tell them Greg Wilson sent you.


  1. I like it but is it better than Doctor Love (Pete Herbert & Dicky Trisco's Edit) on Disco Deviance? Not heard it all the way through & the soundcloud preview clip is only 54 secs long!

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 …
