Space Coast - Vibe AM (Lost Paradise)

The sophomore release on Sleazy McQueen's new Lost Paradise imprint came out a few weeks ago and it's one of our favorite bits of wax to have come out in 2013 so far. Alongside curating the excellent Whiskey Disco series (keep an eye out for the soon to drop nr. 17, which comes with 4 absolutely bitchin' tracks), McQueen has created Lost Paradise as an outlet for his new project 'Space Coast'. The sound he and co-pilot Collazo are pushing with Space Coast is best described as wobbly post-disco acid deep house (all makes sense now doesn't it?). Title track 'Vibe AM', a midtempo chugger with a rubbery bassline, muffled steel drums and a moody muted flute, and the hypnotizing acidic technoid closing tune 'Can't get enough' showcase the full extent of the considerable sonic capabilities of the pairing.

As ace as both tracks are, they both get completely snowed under by the stunning remix of Vibe AM Social Disco Club has turned in. Back when we first got properly into disco and edits, Humberto Mattias' SDC moniker was omnipresent, but we sort of lost track of him over the past years. We were completely taken by surprise by this here re-rub of Vibe AM,  which leans heavily towards the sound of classy 90s westcoast house (think Migs/Blue Six/Naked Music in their halcyon days), lovingly incorporating the flute samples of the original track while adding lush pads and seriously driving percussion and drums to create a slice of timeless deephouse. We started a recent mixtape with this track and it's easily the tune we got the most track ID requests for. Absolute monster of a tune on a strong twelve, go seek!

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 …
