The Sleazesisters, also known as Starlet DJ’s, is a DJ and remix ensemble consisting of veteran London DJ Pete Martine and others.
DJing from the age of thirteen, Pete quickly gained a reputation within the industry. He was approached by the then unknown Paul Masterson and the two were soon collaborating in the studio. Paul’s articulate technical skills married to Pete’s knowledge of cutting-edge dance music led to a catalogue of credible tunes. The duos chart hits include “Sex” featuring Vicki Shepard, and the notorious Ibiza anthem “Lets Whip It Up” (You Go Girl). This became a worldwide dance best-seller, featuring on eight Ibiza compilations including Brandon Block and Alex P’s Clockwork Orange, and to this day remains a club classic. The guys then followed their success with another worldwide chart topper “Work It Up and Wear It Out” with BMG Records, which led to Peter touring Australia and the USA.
Paul moved on to become Yomanda, whilst Peter continued as “The Sleazesisters”, now with fellow DJ and London’s Heaven resident Porl Young. A string of world-wide chart remixes and productions followed, including such massive tunes as Samantha Mumba’s “Gotta Tell U”, Steps’ “Deeper Shade of Blue” and Anastacia’s “I’m Outta Love” turning commercial chart records into storming dance-floor anthems. The tracks are highly charged, bouncy and often lend themselves to an ‘Almighty Definitive’ style. With their long and more-ish introductions you are left anticipating the each measure.
I once met Pete in Manchester’s Cruz 101 nightclub, he came in for a drink (and probably a dance) and had a little chat with me by the DJ box. It was about 4 years ago – nice guy!
