Hans Bouffmyhre's label blows out five candles to the sound of this pounding, relentless compilation. In true Sleaze fashion, Audio Injection and Monoloc deliver hypnotic, driving grooves full of grinding noises and powered by rolling drums. Flug ventures further down the wormhole with "Inside Of My Brain Cells", a tunnelling, pulsing groove that re-defines 'heads down', while some of techno's most respected artists also contribute as remixers. Par Grindvik's take on Gary Beck's "Standing On My Foot" is a chord-heavy roller; DVS1 delivers a prowling bass-led interpretation of Billy Johnston & Gennaro Mastrantonio's "Space", while the best reshape comes from Perc. The UK producer re-imagines Jean Ramesse's "Jobby Noir" as a tight metallic stepper with the same kind of robotic charm as Forward Strategy Group's work for his Perc Trax label.
