Record cover project: we need your help!


As the Sleazy Beats series draws to a close (more info on that later) we're giving our record cover project one last push to see if we can make this little plan work. If you haven't read about it yet, here's the 411: we put out records, you buy them, but we've only met a handful of you. We're all about giving back to the community and all that jazz though and would love to offer you the chance to star on the cover of our very last release, which will be out in the spring of 2012. All you have to do is take a pic of you and your Sleazy Beats record(s) before the 15th of March and fire it over to sleazybeats@gmail.com

Whatever happens, you'll get a spot in our gallery of awesomeness (which you should check out for inspiration, as there's some quality mugshots from all over the globes to be found) but if we get enough pics in (50 more, give or take) the record sleeve will see the light of day. We really hope you can find a few minutes to humor us, it would be pretty amazing if we could pull this off together. Sloppy kisses from the Sleazy crew!

PS It won't really be our very last release...Sleazy Beats' twisted sister SB Black Ops just might rear her lovely head later this year....

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 …
