It’s vibrant, exhilarating and perfect for dancing the bad energy out of you. A true disco-house heater that imputes more colour and joy to these summer days. When released, ‘Playbox’ was accompanied by an extraordinary illustrated music video inspired by classic science-fiction cyberpunk. The retro-futuristic vibe of the video perfectly translates into visuals the essence of the single.
Now, about two months after Purple Disco Machine shared this musical relic, he presents the fans with an exciting remix coming directly from the hands of Alex Virgo. Both renowned names of Glitterbox make the disco ball spin faster, even if with slightly different essences.
