Seriously Sleazy

Seriously SleazySleazy McQueen is one of those rare artists you stumble across and don't want to tell anyone about (but for some reason you run a narcissistic blog that you've named after yourself... and you feel compelled to shout about it).
Sleazy McQueen's disco edits, often popping up on the superb Whiskey Disco imprint, aren't just your run-of-the-mill edits (a sprinkling of hollow percussion here, a faint kick drum there...). No, the difference is they're unique, inventive and a lot of fun.
Sleazy McQueen whacks a whopping great big beat, chugging and old school, on top of the poppy diva vocal:
The Cover Girls - Wishing On A Star (Sleazy McQueen Extended edit) [pelski highly recommends]{HQ wav file}
A repetition of hefty bassed-out beats rain down on this edit. The whole thing picks up steam three minutes in, morphing into a medley of disco strings, tinkling percussion and slamming beats. Funky, peak-time stuff:
Martin Circus - Disco Circus (Sleazy McQueen Edit) [pelski highly recommends] {192kbps}
Serious caribbean flavours on this SisterNancy track; the edit doesn't diverge too much, opting for subtle tweaks of the original's clattering beats and reggae melody:
Sister Nancy - Bam Bam (Sleazy McQueen Edit){HQ wav file}
Next up is the 1976 classic 'Space Talk' by Asha Puthli. McQueen replaces the airy footwork of the original with a punchier beat and even funkier bassline:
Asha Puthli - Space Talk (Sleazy McQueen Edit)
Fatback Band - I Like Girls (Sleazy McQueen Edit){HQ wav file}
Stevie Wonder - Love Light In Flight (Sleazy McQueen Edit)
