V.A. - The Dirty Dancing Sampler (SBR008)

Right, so a little over a week ago our 8th release came out. Funny coincidence that our first sampler 'the Sleazy Family EP' came out pretty much exactly a year ago. Remember that one? Yellow chick on the sticker, tracks by Eddie C, Tornado Wallace, Daniel Solar and SE62? Seems like a bit of a dreamteam now but back when we signed those tracks, all these beatdown maestros only had one or two releases under their belt. Sleazy Beats has never been about banking on the popularity of veterans or putting out intentionally 'big records'. Instead we've been trying to find exciting new music and give up and coming producers a break. Which leads us to 'The Dirty Dancing Sampler', on which we welcome four new names to our little label's roster. We're quite proud of this particular release. We like to think that, in spite of featuring four different artists from four different countries and completely different backgrounds, the record is surprisingly coherent. It is also a moody, atmospheric and chuggy affair that will most likely not get a lot of club plays but will hopefully be one of those records you pull off the shelve when you get home with a bunch of friends after a great night at a club.

SBR008 / The Dirty Dancing Sampler by SleazyBeats

Here's what the kind people over at Juno had to say about the release:
"Sleazy Beats takes on four fresh artists for its latest vinyl release, entitled the Dirty Dancing Sampler. French newcomer Modsleep opens the EP with the rich and drum heavy jam "Women Don't Want To Love Me"; stylish and with an unrivalled groove, it certainly makes us love him! Dead Rose Music Company occupies the rest of the side with "Never Gonna Stop" - deep, sexy and funky as hell, it's another winner for the EP. Flipping over, Lord Of The Isles give off deliciously moody yet bright vibes with "Teach Them No Hate" while The Noodleman and his "Lovers Dub" take things into charismatic quarters with a never ending builder"

If you like the record, you can pick up a copy here. Thanks to all of you that already did so, we've been over the moon to see it holding the number one position on Juno's disco sales charts for well over a week.

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…

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 frommy 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 …

V.A. - Quartet Series 001

I remember meeting Maurits (Nachtbraker) for the first time in Amsterdam a few years ago in a bar in the western part of town, where we both happen to live. You never quite know what to expect with these 'producer' types. I've been in the game long enough to know there's a lot of bullshit going around, but right off the bat it was clear Maurits is no chip off the bullshit block though. At the time he had his first release out on Dirt Crew and some things lined up with Heist and was about to finish his degree at university. Over the course of way too many beers and lots of merry banter he explained he wanted to have a go at making a living out of this music thing. The plan was to sign up with an agency, release records through Dirt Crew and Heist and eventually set up his own imprint. This is usually the point where my bullshit swing-o-meter starts peaking, but even through my beergoggles I could tell this goodnatured soul with his winning smile meant business (even if…
