The final release on Trevor Jackson’s previously unreleased archive label Pre- is an album under his own name titled ’System’
8 tracks originally recorded between 2002-2010 these works consist of music taken from the same sessions that became his highly ambitious Vinyl Factory music and installation project ‘Format’ in 2015. Edited and complied from a series of lengthy nocturnal synthesiser, drum machine & 8 bit sampler improvisations they range from melodic IDM, driving electro, motor city techno & tripped out house excursions.
The album originally launched at the London Independent Label market in May this year, was only available as an ultra limited edition of 150 CD’s and sold out immediately. This second final edition is packaged in a unique screen printed case designed by Jackson himself, and marks a symbolic end to his musical past (after making over 100 unreleased tracks available during the past 3 years) and a long overdue venture into unchartered new musical territories.
From his UK hip Hop label ‘Bite it!’in the early 90’s, star studded remix catalogue as the Underdog, running the legendary Output Recordings label from 1996-2006, much loved Playgroup project, acclaimed Metal Dance, DJ Kicks & On-U sound compilations, Vinyl Factory Format release, notorious fortnightly NTS radio show, and most recently his archive unreleased recordings label Pre-, Jackson continually pushes the boundaries creating innovative projects firmly rooted in his passion for the foundations of electronic music culture whilst progressively looking forward and breaking brand new ground.
