Out Now! On Kolour Limited Records from Detroit!
Here's a review from my distinguished colleagues at SBR...
Eddie C, The Canadian crownprince of beatdown disco, strikes again with a magnificent EP on a new offshoot of the most classy Kolour imprint (which has been our favorite American deephouse label for years now). The Kolour crew snapped up three of Eddie´s tracks for a special Kolour Limited 12" (pretty blue vinyl!), and boy what a treat this record is. Sleazotica on the A side is a lush, pitched down moody 9-minute glorious journey(BPM well under 90). On the flip we get ´A Simple Song´, a midtempo chugger wrapped around a vocal loop trying to convince us it´s just a simple song. Yeah right, simple as in ridiculously groovy. My pick of the bunch is the third track on the EP though, ´Rising´, which is a sublime rework of Keni Burke´s Rising to the Top. Eddie has sprinkled his magic dust all over this one and showcases exactly why he´s the hottest name in beatdown disco land.
DJHISTORY review (#2 on New Vinyl chart - May 2010)
Eddie C makes lovely, deep, rolling, disco and house nuggets. He also lives the life of riley in a Canadian ski resort. Here are another three gems thrown together during apre-ski.
Three track disco edits EP from Canadian producer Eddie C, who has been getting plenty of attention with his releases on Sleazy Beats and Flashback. Title track "Sleazotica" is a slo-mo beatdown jazz-funk groover that sounds like it could have been lifted from a 1970s 'adult' flick. Ooher! Next "A Simple Song" ups the BPMs with a wicked looped-up vocal and house tempo rhythm - blimey, it's the return of the musch-loved filter disco-house sound! The real biggie is on the flipside though, as Eddie nabs the bassline from Keni Burke's classic "Rising To The Top" and does a Revenge-style looped-up disco number (but a tad faster). Put it on yer list!
