Song of the Day 6/5/08: PlayDoe - It's That Beat
On one hand, Playdoe's "It's That Beat" will unequivocally recall one of your favorite electro / hip hop acts of the past few years. On the other hand, you'll cast aside that comparison about halfway through the song, denouncing it as fundamentally inaccurate. Spank Rock is a good starting point - bombastic, crunched up beats and hyperexcited wordplay - but Playdoe seems cleverer and, well, less self-satirizing. The ladies chanting the chorus - who, having no photographic evidence at our disposal, we must assume to be pretty young things (they sure sound it, no?) - pull this whole thing together into a wicked summer jam.
