audio sushi track of the day Trevor Jackson Presents: METAL DANCE video mix

by The Editor

Drawing on specials that have peppered his DJ sets for over two decades, the man behind Playgroup and original founder of the legendary Output Recordings, Trevor Jackson mines deep and hones in a time when socialist realist aesthetics and dark machine funk collided explosively during the '80s. The Metal Dance collection touches on the dancefloor-oriented sounds that emerged as the industrial influences of Cabaret Voltaire and Throbbing Gristle locked horns with European synth-punk and new wave electronics. Out on Strut Records in February 2012, Metal Dance follows Strut's foray into the hidden corners of revered Manchester label Factory Records.
