Kastil - Dusty Edits (Outernational Holland)

One of the best things about running a little label is getting to meet likeminded people and fellow music enthusiasts. Great people like Mitchel and Dragan for example, who run things over at Outernational, a superclassy, Rotterdam-based online music platform that focusses on all things deephouse and beatdown disco. They're about to pass the point of no return with the first release on their brand new vinyl imprint - Outernational Holland. For their maiden voyage, they enlisted the services of Spanish producer Kastil (Ponton, Editorial), and he delivered a bit of biggie that deserves a few kind words on these here pages.

Senor Kastil kicks things off in style with Back to Philadelphia, a chuggy, bassheavy rework of an old Sister Sledge classic. On the flip there's the lush SMD, a lazy groover with a BIG squelchy bassline and some muted crowd noises thrown in for good measure. The third and final track, "Rolls Royce" largely follows the same recipe. Can't remember the name of the original track for the life of me (though I'm sure I have it lying around somewhere), but Kastil's rendition is tasty as hell. Check out SMD below, my pick of the litter:

Buy here. It's a superlimited affair (think only 250 got pressed up), so pick one up before they're all gone. Essential stuff.


  1. Goddamit! It's out of stock already!

  5. Hey Martin,

  6. Thanks for your kind words guys!!! :)
    And congrats for Sleazy stuff!

  7. hej, i should have read the comments before more carefully. ;-)

    kastil told me the same via soundcloud, so everything should be good tomorrow.

  8. Shouldn't be that hard to figure out Rolls Royce's source material: it's Rose Royce's Still In Love.

  9. Damn! You guys really do have great taste in music! Thanks! Just picked up a copy from Juno.

    Check out this track if you havn't already, I think it will be right up your street:

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 …
