"Playgroup is the brainchild of Trevor Jackson -- the producer behind UK rap outfit The Brotherhood and remixer extraordinaire for the likes of U2, Massive Attack, UNKLE and Death in Vegas. Playgroup is the fantasy album of a master producer running amok through his rolodex and record collection, rediscovering cult heroes and forgotten legends from the worlds of punk, funk, reggae, new wave, house and rap. It's Screamdelica meets Blue Lines for a new century, appealing to fans of both cutting edge and retro sounds. Playgroup features a host of musical mavericks; hip house poet KC Flightt brings the party vibes on 'Front 2 Back,' while Shinehead presses the dancehall pressure on a cover of Paul Simon's '50 Ways To Leave Your Lover.' Scottish indie pioneers Edwyn Collins (Orange Juice) and Roddy Frame (Aztec Camera) are along for the ride, as well as original riot grrrl Kathleen Hannah (Bikini Kill & Le Tigre). Add to that ex-Headcoatees Kyra, Happy Mondays stalwart Rowetta, Lucy Pearl vocalist Joi, and finally Trevor himself singing on the dubelectro opus 'Overflow' and you have Playgroup: a compendium of perfect grooves and infectious pop sensibilities, fusing old and new schools into the ultimate millennial house party. The US CD version will contain the video for 'Number One' directed by master animator H5 (Alex Gopher's 'The Child'), as well as an exclusive extra track TBA. The double vinyl will contain the extra track '4th Sex Baby' featuring indie provocateurs Peaches & Gonzales."
