Get Down Edits - Guestmix



We've been seriously slacking on the guestmixes as of late, so we're happy the kind Get Down Edits crew were up for doing us a new one. It's a belter of a set too, expertly put together and chuckfull of amazing bits, ranging from moody downtempo tackle to fun disco nuggets. Actually, 'Fun' is  quite an apt description of what these guys are all about. Let me elaborate on that just a little. I don't get to play out nearly as much as I'd like to (I blame being a lazy as fck and terminally tired young dad), which means I usually DJ in front of a white and not so responsive white wall. Which will invariably lead to digging out the deepest and obscurest bits of house I have on the shelves. The funny thing is that on those rare occasions I do get to play out, I invariably start out with that same moody business, but as the night (and the alcohol consumption) progresses, I end up busting out full-on disco stuff and absolutely loving it. Which is where the Get Down crew comes in. They don't aim to please the beards, but cater for the girls instead. Play one of their tracks and the girls will start to dance. Which is what it's all about at the end of the day. The Get Down recipe is as simple as it is effective: take a great and trusted oldie, up the oomph, retain the swing and let the good times roll. Which is exactly how and why this whole edit industry got started in the first place.

Unsurprisingly, the Get Down Edits profile is skyrocketing at the moment. There's records coming out on Disco Deviance, new label Glenview Records and trusted digital imprint Editorial, and they succesfully run their own Get Down Edits label, a great outlet for their own edits and reworks and some inspiring cuts from other promising producers.

Best check their soundcloud for more info, tracks and gig info (anyone going to Croatia this summer???)

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 …
