VA - I Love You But I've Chosen Disco (Kolour LTD)

A note just to let you know about the storm a brewin' over at Kolour HQ. As if they haven't been working hard enough in recent months dropping nuggets like their Norm De Plume release and their Tortoise Ep from their offshoot label Undertones, they now keep their white hot streak of releases firmly in place with a 4-tracker of e.pic proportions, doling out more of the stuff we can't resist. We simply love sampler records, not only do you usually get a nice variety (it's the spice of life, don't ya know) of tunes for those different sets some of us play, you also get to sometimes find out about new and exciting artists. This little sampler features the top talents of some hot blokes that have been making noise of late: Zoo Look (Tenth Circle, Sccucci Manucci), 78 Edits & Deadly Sins (Giant Cuts), and upcoming Bergen bad boys, The Glue (UntzUntz). Needless to say this ep has us literally quite weak in the knees.

Zoo Look kicks things off in fine form with "Find The Words", a deep workout with crisp snares and lovely female vocal (been used before in a couple of tracks I know, but great nonetheless). Deadly Sins comes correct yet again with "Sometimes", sealing in some more of his trademark loopy, hypnotic filth. The Glue's "Real Good Lovin" (our pick of the litter), is a fat mid-tempo thumper that features a back n' forth, boy/girl vocal conversation from a cheesy 80s flick we reckon; which is not only super original but also works brilliantly. A head-nodding beast if there ever was one...drop this one out and be prepared for trainspotting inquiries galore. Finally, 78 Edits (who has been unstoppable in recent months) delivers "When I'm With You", a slow and scorching romp through feel-good territory, as is becoming his trademark move.

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 Mambo, Passport To Paradise, Most Excellent Unlimited and a recent sureshot edit of Yoruba Singers’ Black Pepper (on Left …
