Metal Dance Volume 2 – Industrial / New Wave / EBM : Classics & Rarities ’79 – 88′

“More precious metals, an impeccable selection” – DJ 9.5/10

“Trevor Jackson’s first Metal Dance compilation, released last year, was that rarest of things: a genuinely revelatory collection that celebrated an often-overlooked but supremely fertile period in electronic music history, Metal Dance 2 is even better than its predecessor. In many ways, it’s more of an eye-opener, too.” – Juno

“Metal Dance 2, the second in Trevor Jackson’s series of collections of alternative electronic tracks, is like a history lesson in how your favourite current leftfield electronic music came to fruition. The seeds of industrial music, modern day punk funk, Belgian New Beat and UK techno can be traced back to some of the tunes included on this outstanding compilation” – Line Of Best Fit 9/10

“Jackson knows his onions and if you couple that with knowing what works both from a dance floor perspective and as a collector then you have someone well placed to impart knowledge with no boredom involved.” – Test Pressing

“With Metal Dance 2, he has unearthed another treasure trove of misshapen, ugly gems, which, for all their dated syndrums and affected vocals, speak down the ages.” – Resident Advisor 4/5

“Top 20 archive releases of 2013′ – The Wire

Following the overwhelming critical reaction to the first volume in the series (including year-end nods from the New York Times, Resident Advisor and many more) Trevor Jackson returns with the impeccably curated Metal Dance 2. This time around, the selection is even deeper and darker, giving a masterclass in essential and overlooked Industrial, New Wave, Post-Punk and EBM.
