VA - DG Edits 2

For a while there was a whackload of new releases flooding them pages over at our favourite record haunts, but one only needs to scan the bestseller charts to see it's more or less repress city at the moment, needless to say nothing to get overly excited about. There was one spicy record we picked up a couple of weeks ago however - purely designed to rock the dancefloor in an extremely fun way, by the mysterious DG.

Three different edits on offer here, one of which is arguably of one of the best Hamilton Bohannon tunes around, 'Take The Country to New York City'. A vocal and a dub are nicely laid out on the A. On the B, 'Movin' by 70s disco & funk-a-nauts Brass Construction is a downright classic having been rinsed and sampled by some of the all-time great 80s and 90s NYC jocks, Masters at Work for one. Granted: this ain't a helluva lot different than the original - but what a treat it is to have this gem on a nice fat 12"...and with a little extra oomph. I must say however, as rocking as this tune is believe you me: it's a bit of a grizzly tune to mix, a oneway ticket to trainwreck town is not far off. So either have a wrestle and mix it if your skills are up to par, or just drop it in quick-fast. Finally the icing on the cake is the b2 - an ace take of Temptations edit 'I Can't Get Next To You'. Nicely done, DG - this is perfect party stuff, will get dropped with sleazy pleasure.

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 …
