Sleazy Peek: Sune - Pistachio Sour (Kyoku Records)

Oi oi! We're back with another Sleazy Peek for your listening pleasure, and today we're getting saucy with the Aussies from Kyoku Records. One year has gone by since their maiden release courtesy of Ethyène, and after further carving out a reputation with outings by Dorsi Plantar and Long Island Sound, the guys figured no one needs cake when you can celebrate your birthday with a royal serving of  wax. Staying true to their name (Kyoku means 'tune' in Japanese), this will be another one that's not to be missed.

Doing the honours for this 4th release is Swedish producer Sune, a relatively fresh face on the scene, who's chopping samples like a seasoned veteran and contributed a track to Lagaffe Tales' Tale of Tales Chapter 02 earlier this month. Now on his first solo EP with '8 Till Late', Sune does what Sune does best: delivering four tracks of smooth, sunny and sample-based house music. The kind of stuff that makes you want to dust off your dad's Panama hat, light up a Montecristo and sway in style. I'll Be Right Back on Lagaffe was lækker (tasty), but 8 Till Late is plain skidegod (brilliant)!

Set to be the biggest thing coming from Sweden since the bikini team, we are delighted to pour you a generous serving today. A mix of sour, sweet and nutiness like the real deal, this one promisses to be an explosion of sensations for your ears. So sit down, and have a sip of Sune's 'Pistachio Sour'.

8 Till Late is scheduled to drop around the beginning of July (could be a bit Suner or later), and will be available through RedeyeJuno, Decks, HHV, Rush Hour and Clone.

Garn grab a copy, cunts!

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 …
