Trevor Jackson (Playgroup / Underdog / Output Recordings) returns with the eagerly awaited second instalment of his Metal Dance compilation series this August, following widespread critical acclaim in the wake of Volume 1. Drawing from Jackson's deep collection of original industrial, post-punk, EBM and new wave, the album is an inspired mix of sounds and styles, mining classics, dub versions, oddities and secret weapons inspired by his formative clubbing years at many of London's seminal nightlife haunts.

Alongside more familiar names like Visage, Chris & Cosey, Front 242 & Ministry, the compilation includes unexpected outings by '80s artists Godley & Crème (with the obscure B-Side "Babies") and an early incarnation of Sheffield's ABC, Visa Versa, with "Riot Squad." As before, Jackson also places the spotlight onsome of the less heralded bands of the time and casts the net far and wide: Germany's Plus Instruments, Spain's Diseno Corbusier offshoot Esplendor Geometrico, Italy's Neon and Yellow Magic Orchestra's Haruomi Hosono out of Japan all feature. The selection even travels as far as Lebanon for the outrageous "Tanki Tanki" by Rene Bandaly Family, a truly one-off slice of intense political Arabic proto-techno (here re-edited by fellow Lebanese artist Rabih Beaini aka Morphosis). Rarities include tracks from pre-Liaisons Dangereuses / DAF group CHBB, Craig Leon & Arthur Brown, and Trevor's own re-edit of Rusty Egan's "Twilight Zone," all receiving their first official release on CD and digital.

Metal Dance 2 is another essential selection of anarchic machine music which remains hugely influential on today's generation, informing the sound of groups and labels such as The Knife, Factory Floor, Gesaffelstein, COMEME, DFA & L.I.E.S.
