Thrill Da Playa (of 69 Boyz) - Slide

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: Thrill Da Playa
  • Track: Slide
  • Producer: V. Bryant and Mr. Bright
  • Album: School Dayz LP

Grapevine right, clap, grapevine left, clap—sorry, I was just brushing up on my electric slide, which, if the 69 Boyz' Thrill Da Playa is to be believed, is about to come back in style in a big way. On the newly-released Slide, the Panhandle State veteran calls listeners of all ages, sizes, regions, and sun signs out onto the floor to party like it's 1989 (The Electric was released in '76, but that's when it really caught on). Though Thrill and his HB Fraternity bring plenty of energy, this kind of cut lives or dies on the strength of its beat—luckily, V. Bryant and Mr. Bright's upbeat, sampled instrumental oozes retro appeal, playing like a disco throwback lightly seasoned with the Miami Bass sound the 69 Boyz rode to success on '94's Tootsee Roll. Slide's got body-moving potential to spare, but can it catch on with the Crank That crowd? You be the judge. Thrill Da Playa's School Dayz LP has yet to receive a solid release date, but fans can grab a copy of his recently-released prelude mixtape, School Dayz: Street Leak now.
