In the hallowed halls of modern, vinyl-only record labels… there is but one label in my experience that has caused as much a stir of excitement as Netherlands based imprint, Sleazy Beats Recordings. Sadly, this label went belly-up in 2012 despite much success. But, like a glorious phoenix rising from it’s ashes came the equally impeccable, Sleazy Beats Black Ops, and the people rejoiced!

Continuing thier long tradition of quality, low slung house joints, the Black Ops team celebrates it’s seventh release with the absolutely stellar, ‘Part Of Me’ EP from Leipzig based producer, Luvless. Comprised of three, mid-tempo heaters, this release marks a ‘coming of age’ that firmly solidifies Luvless as one classy as fuck composer.

Lead cut, ‘In My Arms’ sets the tone with it’s gorgeous, grand piano stabs and funky splashes of acoustic and analog percussion… the melancholic vocals lamenting all the way through the epic breakdown. Flip it over and you get a double-header of purely head-nod-able, housed-up grooves from ‘Balance On A Beam’ and my personal favorite, ‘Precious Kind Of Love.’ The first, takes us through an endless sea of steppers illuminated only by a twirling disco ball and the tracking lights on the 1200’s. Last, but certainly not least, ‘Precious Kind Of Love’ epitomizes the term ‘slow-burner’ with it’s weighty pads and sparse, percussive builds.

Limited to a single run pressing of 500 copies, you better snatch one of these up ASAP!
