6th Borough Project - In Your Arms (Delusions of Grandeur)


I've had a huge, huge soft spot for the 6th Borough lads for yonks now. While some of the bits Craig and The Revenge make individually these days are a bit too intense for my tired sleep-deprived ears (three years of incessant squealing from the kids have done more damage to my eardrums than two decades of listening to music at silly volumes), when they pair up in the studio, their touch is of the midas variety. This here EP 'In Your Arms' is a taster of their second longplayer for Delusions of Grandeur, called Borough to Borough. If this sampler is anything to go by, we're in for a bit of a treat, as Craig and Graeme's are 'en pleine forme' here, showing who's boss once more.

In Your Arms on the A1 is classic 6th Borough gear. A slow-paced shuffler with smooth piano lines, a slightly pitched up vocal and their trademark crips drums, you know. Also on the A-side is U Know U, my pick of the bunch. It's just as deliciously slow as In Your Arms but the lads up the chug factor a bit, throwing in some mean and moody synthetic basslines and chords to mesmerising effect. Add a few crazy breakdowns and Bob's your uncle. The stuttering, uptempo vocal cut Read My Mind on the flip - featuring Paul Joseph - rounds things off on a housemeetstechno tip with its everlasting hi-energy feel. Not something I'd play, but I can imagine a big room going off when this gets played on a decent rig at the right time.

Brilliant EP, will tide us nicely over until the LP arrives. Pick up one here.

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 …
