Boomkat Product Review:
Trevor Jackson cherry picks 27 Science Fiction Dancehall Classics from the On-U Sound archive. Leading on from Jackson's killer industrial/post-punk selections in the 'Metal Dance' compilation, he parses the legendary and influential UK label's catalogue for its finest and unreleased Afro-futurist gems ranging from the skewed yet sublime electro-dub of Neneh Cherry & The Circuit (a.k.a. Steve Beresford) thru the 4th world funk of Missing Brazilians and the taut industrial flex of bossman, Adrian Sherwood's Voice of Authority project.
The sci-fi element of the title clearly pertains to an emphasis on drum machines, sharp-cut electronics and spatial manipulation; all crucial ingredients in On-U Sound's genetic make-up, and also deeply inspirational for a whole generation of post-punks, noise fiends and dance music pioneers exploring the spaces between, and outside of, then established and emerging styles such as reggae electro, pop, punk and avant electronics. For longtime label fiends and newcomers alike, it's an invaluable session, crammed with previously unreleased heat and '80s dancefloor archetypes.
