DESCRIPTION

Hardway Bros (otherwise known as Sean Johnston of A Love From Outer Space) returns to Throne of Blood with their second EP. After successfully exploring Belgian New Beat influences on last years “A/B Music”/“Shorty” release, Sean continues to explore the darker side of vintage electronic tropes with the Sleaze EP.

The EP’s opener “Legato” operates on the interface between electronic body music and early techno, invoking Chris & Cosey, nights at the Dorian Gray, Suicide and Belgian 24 hour Discotheques. Remixer Kasper Bjørke, riding a killer bass line, pushes things deep into late night warehouse rave territory.

On the flipside, “Thoughts On Modern Living” comes over like a deranged early Murk production and is fashioned for late night basement jams.

Closing out the EP is “Sleaze” a cover of a 1983 Marc (Almond) and The Mambas B-side and a collaboration featuring Horton Jupiter (They Came From The Stars I Saw Them / DJ Mystic Rock / Puwaba) on vocal duties and Mat Flint (Death In Vegas / Revolver / Deep Cut) providing guitar textures.
