Review: Trevor Jackson ‘Metal Dance 2’ Is A Trainspotter’s Delight

Gather ‘round ye ole ones and twos, trainspotters: Trevor Jackson is back with Metal Dance 2, his new collection of industrial, electronic body music, and synth-punk rarities released between 1979-1988. As anyone familiar with the British designer/label boss/producer/DJ can attest, you have to dig pretty deep in the crates to give Jackson (Playgroup/Underdog/Output Recordings) a run for his money. This is, after all, a man who (effectively) slipped music by director John Carpenter into 2012's Metal Dance debut compilation alongside cuts circa 1980-1988 by Nona Hendryx and Alien Sex Fiend. On Metal Dance 2, Jackson skirts the familiar, favoring instrumentals and remixes by perennial subversives Skinny Puppy, Front 242, Throbbing Gristle's Chris & Cosey, Ministry, and Visage, as well as side projects by Liaisons Dangerouses/DAF (Chbb), ABC (Visa Versa), and Yellow Magic Orchestra (Haruomi Hosono). For extra credit, he throws in a B-side by artsy pop duo Godley & Crème (“Babies”); and a couple of edits: “Tanki Tanki”, a throwback Arabic track, and his own rework of Rusty Egan’s “Twilight Zone”. Like Arthur Baker and James Murphy, Trevor Jackson is a DJ's DJ who knows how to make rockers dance and new wavers rock, a skill honed by dropping countless beats and on-point props in some of London’s choicest sweat boxes. As impressive as this collection is, you know it’s just a tease. Bring on Metal Dance 3. Below, stream a mini mix of Metal Dance 2, out today on Strut. Tracklist CD 1 1. Tuxedomoon – 59 to 1 2.

Video Surfaces Of Osundairo Brothers Buying Supplies For Jussie Smollett Attack

A new video of the Osundairo brothers, the two who alleged Jussie Smollett hired them to stage an attack in Chicago earlier this year, has surfaced online. The video shows Ola and Abel Osundairo purchasing supplies that were allegedly used in the attack.

The video, which was obtained by CBS, shows the two brothers stepping up to the cashier's counter to buy ski masks, gloves, bandanas, sunglasses, and red hats that resembled MAGA hats. At one point in the video, Abel pulls his hood over his head, perhaps in an attempt to avoid showing his face on surveillance cameras.


I tracked down surveillance of the Osundairo's buying supplies before "attack"

Sources say Jussie Smollet told brothers what to buy.

Countless phone calls placed for this.

Visited more stores than I wish to admit. @cbschicago

CBS2 reported that the brothers bought the suspected supplies the day before the "attack" on Jussie. While previous videos obtained by the Chicago PD suggests the attackers were wearing ski masks at the time, the new footage does not confirm that Smollett was part of the attack.

The Empire actor has reportedly agreed to sit down with the police for another interview. Check out the new video below.

Dreamville's Ari Lennox and J. Cole have united for a new music video, and the end result is exquisite. The duo released the visuals for their collaboration "Shea Butter Baby" on Wednesday (Feb. 20).

The Bennett Johnson-directed video depicts the ups and downs of a relationship between Ari and her partner. Cole also appears around the halfway mark of the video as he spits his verse while standing in a vacant space with Lennox.

"Shea Butter Baby" appears on Mike Will Made-It's soundtrack album for Creed II. It's the third single to receive video treatment, following "Runnin'" (with with Eearz, Schoolboy Q and2 Chainz) and "Kill 'Em With Success" (with ASAP Rocky, ASAP Ferg and Nicki Minaj).

Eminem Continues To Fire Shots At MGK During Australia Concert

It looks like Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly's beef is still going strong. During Eminem's latest concert in Australia, the rapper called MGK a "c*cksucker."

It all started when Em's fans began chanting for him to play his 2018 diss record, "Killshot." Instead of performing the track however, the Detroit native said: "I would but I don't want to give that cocksucker any more fucking light."

"Make some noise for your f**kin' selves and make nothing for MGK," he added before continuing with his set.

Em's latest comments come months after his feud with MGK exploded in 2018. The beef ignited after Em addressed Machine Gun on his Kamikaze album, which prompted the Houston artist to return with "Rap Devil." Fans thought the beef had died down, but was later resurged with Eminem's "Killshot."

Check out Eminem's latest diss in the video below.
