Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner - 'Open 24 Hours' Ep (Whiskey Disco)



It's no secret we've been devoted fans of all things Whiskey Disco since pretty much the halcyon days of Sleazy Beats; pre-label where we were just busy blogging away, MOOB. If you care to, take a quick scroll all the way back to the first page on this here little blurg and you'll quickly notice that the first actual review from way back in summer 2009 is of a Sleazy McQueen 12" - Whiskey Disco ambassador and founder. Ah how serene and pure those days were, before we became ultra-jaded sleep-deprived jackalopes.

Jump in the time machine and hit 2014 where our man Schleazy is still running WD with reckless abandon and furious anger. He's done so with great success I should add, and all the while upholding a smattering of dj dates worldwide: Asia, South America, Europe and South Africa all this past summer if I'm not mistaken. His beloved Whiskey Disco label is no longer in its' infancy, as you can imagine, but rather has just rounded out its early thirties. So kudos to you, monsieur McQueen.

We've covered Whiskey Disco releases on these virtual pages in the past so we'll spare you the labels' mantra, and just cut to the chase shall we? To celebrate the imprint's 30th wax outing, they've harnessed the talents of newcomers Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner to kindly set the tone. The aptly titled 'Open 24 Hours' Ep has been out in all fine record shops now for a few weeks, and has on offer three gigantic disco stompers that are purely set to wreak great vengeance on any judicious dancefloor and are liable to get even the beardiest of chin strokers to cut a shuffle or two. Let's let the music do the talking for the first track, just click 'play' below to peep the A side of the record - a fantastic rub of Sharon Redd's 'Try My Love' and read on.

 

After digesting that nugget flip the record over to unleash the ol' bside, beginning first with a fifth-gear rendition of the Jackson Sisters' 'Miracles' (a b-boy/breaker fave). Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner have left much of the original intact here, only chopping some of the vocal, instead relying on looping the infectious chorus to great success, beefing up the drums and bringing out that grinding wah-wah (what instrument is that, I have no idea). Finally Narada Michael Walden's 1979 hit single 'Tonight I'm Alright' gets an inflation. The original is badass - yep, and this is easily as good, a ramped up discofied rendition.

  1. Pure spun gold from head to tail! Well written as always guys.

    BLD is actually a new name, but not a newcomer artist wise. Tis a front for an established artist that prefers to be unknown in relation to this product. We've all got some of those floating around...

  2. Now I feel silly as you guys are probably the only ones that really know who BLD is...oh well, I think there's some nice mystery built in now.

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 …
