Review: SlothBoogie, the London-based record label are back with their fifth instalment in their edit series. These lo-slung disco jams are exactly the sort of business you can expect their DJ crew to be throwing down at their much loved party series. First up we have Carlo with the super sexy and looped-up guitar licks of "Jumba Jooki" followed by Melbourne's Cassettes For Kids with the late night deepness of "No More Faith". On the flip, Luvless from Leipzig gets that Robsoul sound happening on "The First Aid Manual" and Bondi Bondi (from Buenos Aires, actually!) gets that neon-lit boogie down vibe in full effect on the soulful "Dinner 4-2".
Review: The latest missive from the SlothBoogie crew's SBEDITZ series comes from Joe Cleen, a shadowy producer who has previously impressed via releases on the Bordeaux-based Jazz Cabbage imprint. He's up to his old tricks this time round, too, wrapping sharp, ear-pleasing horns and jaunty jazz-funk samples around a bobbing deep house groove on "Give You All I Got", before brilliantly chopping and looping a slap-bass propelled boogie jam on "City Nights". Over on side B, "Dear Lord" is a deliciously deep, piano-and-reverb-heavy take on an old gospel house number, while the brilliantly bouncy "The Fun Part" sees the man of mystery smother a jazzy, hot-stepping house groove with wonderfully fluid electric piano solos.
