Triple vinyl set coming in October.

Audio-visual artist Trevor Jackson, fresh off his first album in fifteen years, has teamed with Adrian Sherwood’s On-U Sound for a compilation of electronic, dub and post-punk entitled Science Fiction Dancehall Classics.

“Not only did On-U sound and Adrian Sherwood’s early production work introduce me to dimensions of sound I’d never experienced, inspire me to start making music and start my own record label, his live mixing at a notoriously loud Mark Stewart and the Maffia gig during the mid-80’s also gave me lifelong tinnitus,” Jackson writes.

“On-U’s timeless releases portray a savage disregard for conformity, representative of an era where attitude and ethos spoke volumes. An uncontrived mix of cultures, minds and powerful personalities combined to produce revolutionary sonic adventures that sound as unique and vital today as they did over 30 years ago. Putting this compilation together is nothing short of an honour.”

The compilation bounds from Neneh Cherry and Massive Attack’s Shara Nelson to On-U Sound regulars Singers & Palyers, Mark Stewart + The Maffia and more. It is due out on October 2 and is available to pre-order now. The cover, tracklistings and a preview video are below.
