Visionquest welcome talented production trio Rework onto the label with ‘You Play’, an album of eleven crisp and wonderfully rich tracks combining elegant rhythms with snappy vocals that blurs the distinction between the underground elite and modern popular culture.
Rework are two German boys and a girl from a punk band background. Their ‘You Play’ album has a rock n roll attitude to the dancefloor, spiced up with French and English lyrics about the ramblings of that crazy little thing called love. Following critically acclaimed work on the much esteemed Playhouse imprint, their third album signifies a change in intensity for Rework’s AngloFrench funk antics, adding a dash of dancefloor melancholy. Rework understand how music works for the dancefloor with key tracks such as ‘Flowers and Girlfriends’ and title track ‘You Play’ cut for serious music heads, while the futuristic melodies of Rework’s ‘Perfect Gun’ have a newwave feel reaching into sublime pop territory. BACKGROUND: Daniel Varga and Michael Kuebler formed Rework in the year 2000. Five years later Sascha Hedgehog, front girl of the French beatpunk band Les Quitriche joined the group. They earned their dance music stripes with a series of strong releases, most notably on Frankfurtbased techno institution Playhouse. More recently their accolades include releases on Magda’s Items & Things and the Parisian label Meant records, and they are currently collaborating with Jennifer Cardini, Seth Troxler (with a release penned for his new label this Spring also) and many others. Aside from producing their own music, Rework have done remixes for the likes of Alter Ego, Chloe, Magda, Losoul and Trentemoller (added: 2014-05-27 13:53:10 )
