Sleeeeaze My Bicep…
The naughty boys over at the magnificent Feel My Bicep are feelin’ a bit sleazy and have dropped off five of the most filthiest dancefloor tracks. From dark & menacing warehouse Trax to early morning disco bliss, the Bicep boys have provided the perfect mini- cruising playlist. Make sure you catch the Bicep crew flexing their disco muscle alongside Neville Watson at the Dalston Superstore on Feb 11th (see flyer below!).
Anyway, enough of my yapping, let’s get dirty!

WIRED – TO THE BEAT OF THE DRUM
This is dark analog 80s sleaze of the first degree, there’s something so wrong about that bassline… surely the theme-tune to an underground Ukrainian fetish-club circa 1986! You could’ve 100 variations of this track and they’d all sound like horrendously vulgar tasteless euro-pop (infact i’m pretty sure I got a batch of said material thrown in free with my first set of decks) but somehow, like many of the italo-esque tracks we post, there’s just that bizarre (and sometimes accidental) quality, that just make them brilliant. Honestly, I’ve dropped this at 4am a few times and it completely rips the ceiling down!
SKATT BROS. – WALK THE NIGHT
Dark late 70s gay anthem that rocks the show every time it’s dropped.
FRANKIE KNUCKLES & JAMIE PRINCIPAL – BABY WANTS TO RIDE
This track defines SLEAZE. Absolute filth, We were having difficulties tracking this version down, but here she is. This is exactly the kinda’ kipper you could expect from one of the darker themed Optimo nights up in Glasgow. Frankie Knuckles = pure New York slime. We love.
FINGERS INC. – FEELIN’ SLEAZY
I know quite a few of my friends rate ‘Another Side’ as one of their most influential albums of all time. It haunts of deep late night sleaze and none more than this song. Dark vocals and misleading lyrics make this track so compelling, you know this track comes from experience and there are lots of hidden meanings behind it. If jackin-up smack on the street outside Paradise Garage had a sound this would be it!
MS. SHARON RIDLEY – CHANGES (BOOTLEG RE-EDIT)
There was no official 12″ release but the song found it’s way onto many important dj playlists especially those who embraced the sleazy, morning music genre such as Larry Levan and Lary Sanders.
