Later this month Dutch vintage Disco and synth outfit L’Equipe Du Son release their new single ‘Playground Rebels’ on Silhouette Music. I’ve really loved L’Equipe Du Son’s releases so far, but this may just be the best one yet. Strap in for some 80’s awesomeness.
‘Playground Rebels’ is a bright shiny slab of Electro Boogie that nicely mixes up a retro ElectroPop flavour with an undercurrent of B-Boy Electro (and a nice Wild Style sample). The track rests an a Breakin; beat and some positively huge synth stabs that have just the tiniest bit of swing. A killer, nostalgic, track. The reMixes are hot too. There a slow Disco jam from Alphabet City that feed of the swing and goes deep and dark with it along with Dynamicron. The pick of the reMixes though is 80s Stallone, who brings an Italo vibe to the track with an arpeggiated bassline Moroder would have been proud of. Interestingly, Mr. Stallone mixes up the lead line a bit, to twist the mood and let’s his own leads weave in and out of the track organic way.
