Playgroup is British dance act. Basically the project of musician and designer Trevor Jackson, they were associated with the electroclash movement.

Jackson has also performed under the names Underdog and Skull.


Single: Number One

In 2001 Playgroup released "Number One" an up-tempo disco dance song. The video is computer animated and features a tower PC which is transformed into a humanoid dancing robot during the song. The dancing PC performs various dance moves with disco to breakdance elements in a digital dance arena, complete with lighting effects. Among the moves are some signature ones of famous artists. The list includes Michael Jackson's Moon Walk and the glowing tiles under each foot step first seen in his Billy Jean video. The rocking version of the Duck Walk created by Angus Young of AC/DC is also recreated by the computer-generated dancer.
