Trevor Jackson - Metal Dance

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 on a time when socialist aesthetics and dark machine funk collided explosively during the '80s. The Metal Dance collection touches on the dancefloor-orientated 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, Metal Dance follows Strut's foray into the hidden corners of revered Manchester label Factory Records

To celebrate this release Trevor edited and mixed this clip, giving you a taste of what to expect, and judging from this you will not be disappointed. Making his Shameless Disco debut in March, this has only wetted the appetite for what's yet to come! Enjoy
