Rayko & The Glue - Die For You (Untz Untz)

Forthcoming and highly anticipated track by a relatively new name for me, hailing from Norway (Bergen to be precise) The Glue along with Spanish remix and edit master Rayko unleash this pure beast of a 12", the third outing by the fantastic Berlin/Bergen-based Untz Untz imprint, that is likely to get a good few plays by myself this summer season. This limited red vinyl slice of pure loveilness kicks off with Rayko's "I Would Die For You" a driving uptempo edit of Prince's 'I Would Die For You". I don't know how many of our sleazy readers remember the 80s when Prince's original version came out, but I really loved this tune then (definitely showing my age here) and the edit does it justice in my humble opinion. It's got serious 80s edge and top flair that is quite likely to bring a rush of emotions on the dancefloor especially for those who remember the old days, sure to please.

That said, it's most definitely the flip that I'm all about on this record though, which belongs to The Glue, with 'Broken Heart', my oh my what a lushious stormer they've cooked up for us here. A killer 9-minute pure journey of a tune... a fantastic breezy midempo workout that you can't help but sway and move to, killer vocal, big stompin' dreamy track. Have a listen, and tell me - how can you just not love this? Pure perfection for summertime IMO, the soundcloud button is seriously getting a rinsing here at sleazy Towers.

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 …
