about

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), 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.

Features 3 completely unreleased tracks (inc. a crucial early cut by Neneh Cherry) and 6 tracks that have never been reissued on CD or digital (inc. the amazing debut recording by a pre-Massive Attack Shara Nelson).

“Put simply, this is milestone music. File under: Groundbreaking dub-dance” - Mixmag

“A spectacular audio document of an enormously creative period for underground music.” - All Music

“The label has been much-anthologized over the years, but never so thoroughly and yet succinctly. To listen to these 27 tracks is, quite literally, to hear history being made.” - Pop Matters

“A treasure trove for newcomers as well as On-U completists, and a fascinating piece of dance music genealogy. With reggae, punk, industrial, hip-hop and early electronica all colliding, this is a soundclash from which the shockwaves can still be felt over 30 years later.” - Resident Advisor
