Typesun - Last Home (DJ Nature rmx) / Boogie Futuro

The second release on Boogiefuturo, Future Boogie's cheeky sister imprint, is the kind of record we love to stumble upon and cover on here. I don't really follow Future Boogie to be honest (the popular house label's output is a bit too easy on the boogie for my tastes) and the first record on Boogiefuturo by B+S definitely wasn't for me, as I hate housed-up R'n B edits/bootlegs with a fierce passion. Mention DJ Nature though and we'll immediately prick up our ears, so when a youtube vid of his remix of a track called 'Last Home' by Typesun started doing the rounds we quickly cottoned on.

The original by Typesun was the opening act of a recent compilation on Futureboogie, celebrating their 10 year anniversary. I hadn't heard 'Last Home' before but it's really really good downtempo tackle: lush melancholic strings, a  soft bongo line setting a leisurely pace, with tambourine hits, woodblock percussion and muted trumpets weaving in an out in perfect balance. It's reminiscent of Paul Hunter's old releases on Guidance Recordings, which I was a huge fan of back then. DJ Nature's remix on this new handstamped and numbered 12" stays really close to the delightful original. To a certain extent I suppose it's more edit than remix, as it sounds like the Golf Channel captain - whose recent LP is still in heavy rotation over here - executed a few nips and tucks and gently re-arranged the composition but didn't add much production. The result is a slightly scruffier version that leaves all the good parts of the original in tact but adds a bit more oomph and chug and squeezes every last drop of soul out of those lovely strings. I got the record in yesterday and have been playing this track virtually non-stop ever since, it's really special stuff. Have a listen to a clip below:

Flip over for Admin's 'Gold Soul', a shimmering moody deephouse cut that wouldn't have been out of place on a Luv Unlimited release with its warm pads, sharp drums and sweet synth lines. A great little extra for a phenomenal A side.

The record seems to be sold out at all the usual haunts so head over to your local merchant and see if they have one left, or keep an eye out for copies to appear on Discogs.

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 …
