Our pal Dennis Kane compiled a nice little post for Strut Records that we wanted to share with you. Kane is the man behind imprints Disques Sinthomme / Ghost Town and also happens to be a monster selector—not to mention a well of knowledge when it comes to all things disco and house.
The term "sleaze" as applied to disco goes back to the mid-70s, and was used to describe the slower, often vocal-lead tracks that DJs would spin toward the end of a party, in many cases in the early hours of the morning.
These songs are not ranked in any specific way, they are just 10 great sleazy jams, they all have tremendous atmosphere and great sonic palettes. All of them convey such an intense mood and intimacy, elegant, erotic, exotic, and modern.
10 Pino Presti "Disco Shitan"
9. Shock Taktix "Morocko"
8. Puccio Roelens "Northern Lights"
7. Jo Dassin "Le Jardin Du Luxembourg" (TeeTwo Mariani Edit)
