Todd Terje - Ragysh (Running Back)

Just a quick note to let you know about something a tad different but still a record we're pretty excited about this week, which is the fantastic new Running Back 12" entitled 'Ragysh' by our favourite Norwegian, The Terjenator aka Todd Terje Olsen to his mom. This guy don't come out with too many of these here eps, so when a new slab comes along by him it's always good to snap it up quick. We've been huge fans forever of many of his edits, some of them are simply a few of the best produced re-rubs of all time. This record contains possibly an even bigger surprise however, as you'll find 3 of the man's original productions...which is something you really don't see too often. Rumour has it that just last week in fact - this record apparently sold out at a record shop in Oslo one afternoon which soon resulted in people literally brawling in the streets. Luckily a truck soon arrived with a new shipment and a full scale meltdown was narrowly averted. Close call.

Although this slab is billed as containing 4 tunes there's also some hidden cuts to be found - a nice bonus. The excitement comes in the form of 3 rocking tracks though: Ragysh, Bonysh and Snooze 4 Love that all roll with a little slightly higher tempo of roughly 120 (hey, let's face it - that's fast for us) and each of which is totally special and unique in its own way; just have a listen below and see if you dig as well. It's definitely the quality we've come to expect from the combo of Mr.Terje and such a great label like Running Back.

Snap it up quickly, this one won't hang around long as it's a limited press 12" - so get some love HERE while you're still able.

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 …
