PREVIOUSLYPREVIOUSL UN­RE­LEASED YESYE WAVE, OUT 2 DE­CEM­BER Un­heard disco-punk gems from DJ/de­signer Trevor Jack­son’s ’ 90s “elec­tro­clash” out­fit.

Ac­cord­ing to the ac­com­pa­ny­ing blurb for this ex­cel­lent 23- track comp of dub-in­flected dancefloor bangers, Trevor Jack­son was in­spired by the “sen­sory over­load of chem­i­cals, bass, smoke, sweat, sex and danger” he ex­pe­ri­enced in the hip un­der­ground clubs of the early-’ 90s. And that’s a pretty apt de­scrip­tion of the hyp­notic, he­do­nis­tic at­mos­phere Jack­son so deftly con­jures over these raw, groove-laden tunes. Dive in! SI­MON McEWEN
