EP Review Sofi Tukker - Dancing on the People

Sofi Tukker - Dancing on the People

Just enough to keep your dancing shoes busy.

Rating:

There was a point back in 2018 where it was near-on impossible to avoid Sofi Tukker. Or at least one of their songs: ‘Batshit’ - with the cleaned-up moniker ‘That’s It (I’m Crazy)’ - soundtracked an iPhone advert (and, on the way, did a better job of interpolating Right Said Fred’s ‘I’m Too Sexy’ than Swifty ever could). ‘Dancing On The People’ isn’t, of course, a full follow-up to debut ‘Treehouse’, so to pounce on there being no rival earworm here is a little harsh - but it can’t help but be noticeable. ‘Purple Hat’, from which the EP takes its name, is the most interesting of the six tracks on offer, while ‘Fantasy’ the most radio-friendly if a little beige. Elsewhere, the stylistic mish-mash of ‘Swing’ and ‘Playa Grande’ hit somewhere between Med holiday smash and Eurovision (no bad thing). Just enough to keep your dancing shoes busy.
