Watch Trevor Jackson Presents : Science Fiction Dancehall Classics – Scratch Video Megamix from On-U Sound


Direction, Edit, Visual FX by Trevor Jackson
Original Footage produced with Lewis Hackett

The director comments: “I’ve made the visuals as a tribute to video techniques of the period the tracks come from, the sort of thing I’d see in clubs and gigs at the time. It’s perhaps not immediate in a fast 21st century YouTube way, but it totally suits the music. Hopefully people will switch the lights off and zone out to it.”

Trevor Jackson Presents: Science Fiction Dancehall Classics
Triple LP / Double CD / Digital Released October 2nd 2015

“Science Fiction Dancehall Classics is a curated selection of classics, rarities and unreleased tracks from the On-U Sound vaults by DJ & audio visual artist Trevor Jackson (aka Playgroup / Underdog). Trevor is renowned for his Metal Dance compilations of industrial-dance on Strut Records, having worked with the likes of LCD Soundsystem and Four Tet via his Output Recordings Label, and a recently released acclaimed multi edition album of his own music (FORMAT) via The Vinyl Factory.

This is the electro-fried avant-garde side of On-U Sound. Whilst still containing the dub DNA that define Adrian Sherwood’s productions, these tracks document a period when this sonic vision was realised through saturated sheets of electronics, reverberating drum machines and extreme chopped-up tape edits.”
