"Originally a graphic designer, Jackson first gained musical acclaim as the mastermind behind hip hop act The Brotherhood and the founder of seminal label Bite It!. In 2001, Playgroup released its self-titled debut album, unleashing a flurry of acclaim. Mashing up funk, punk, hip hop and new wave into a funky bouillabaisse of beats with guest appearances by reggae star Shinehead, indie pioneer Edwyn Collins, and Le Tigres Kathleen Hanna, the Playgroup project is positive and uplifting music with an underground feel and some serious pop appeal. For his DJ Kicks installment, Trevor Jackson came up with a selection that reflects many of his musical influences from the past. You'll find all time heroes like the Human League and KC Flightt as well as current hot shots like New York's Metro Area and no-wave revivalists The Rapture, original punk-funksters The Flying Lizards, Manchesters J-Walk, and the wicked I:Cube Mix of Ana Rago. Trevor Jackson blends music from more than two decades of club and dance culture into a superbly funked up mix."
