Playgroup – Reproduction

As the producer that bands turn to when their material requires an edgy dancefloor overhaul, Playgroup’s Trevor Jackson rarely puts a foot wrong. Reproduction presents 16 of the Output label chief’s strongest makeovers for acts including The Rapture, Soft Cell, Yello and Chicks On Speed, all of whom generally benefit from Jackson’s remedial injection of low?slung funk and slithery acid house.

Two discs celebrating one good idea is pushing it, however: a single disc containing inspired re?rubs of Chromeo, Radio 4, Sinema and his own version of Depeche Mode’s “Behind The Wheel” would suffice.
