Defected will release the disco-infused compilation in April.
Bob Sinclar and Dimitri From Paris have mixed Knights of the Playboy Mansion, due out this April on Defected Records.
Sinclar and Dimitri have certainly known each other long enough to have developed some creative chemistry. They first met some fifteen years ago in a Parisian record store, not long after which Sinclar released Dimitri's first album, Sacrebleu, through his Yellow Productions label.
"When I think about Playboy, the sound has to be disco," says Sinclar. "For me, the concept of Playboy worked best at the end of the Seventies, before Photoshop and silicone made the girls look more like cyborgs." Accordingly, he's filled his mix with shiny tracks by the likes of Candi Staton, Grace Jones and Boney M. Dimitri's CD is more contemporary, with artists such as Sebastién Tellier, Jimi Tenor and Tensnake. "It's disco-flavoured but a more modern take on it," he says. "You can call it nu-disco for lack of a better word. The lifespan of a mix CD can be incredibly short, so I'm looking for timeless music that will still stand up in a decade or more."
