    I've been caning a cassette of Roxy Music's Avalon in the car lately, it's full of great new wave dub disco (recorded at Compass Point too...).

    first heard this gem on metro area's amazing fabric mix cd. all the tracks on there are pretty good and mostly 80s nyc disco/electro(ish) dubs.

    this is a stand out number.

    moody Being alive increases risk of death.

    another from 400 blows, most of their stuff is post punk/ hip hop/ electro samples, all really bassy

    moody Being alive increases risk of death.

    classic here, few versions going around, one to note and prob the original is by peter brown who did "burning love breakdown" in which the percussion is a bit more abstract.

    Rusty Egan all over this. Rusty provided the soundtrack to those oh so hedonistic nights at the Blitz Club.

    Quite a lot of the stuff on the Funky Alternatives compilations probably qualifies. Funky Alternatives

    I had this tape, may still be in a box somewhere, which had some of the usual suspects : 23 Skidoo and 400 Blows. Various - In.Car Entertainment
    I’ve also got the Movin’ 12” by the latter in another box.

    23 Skidoo are playing at the 100 Club on 4th November.

    Those are a great compilation series. Between volume 1 (1986) and volume 6 (1991) they tell a different history of dance music in the UK, as the music develops from post-punk dubby electro to The Shamen, Meat Beat Manifesto and Orbital.

    The last couple (vols 7 & 8) are worth missing, unless you have an urge to listen to early 90s industrial rock like Godflesh and Cop Shoot Cop.

    my fav compilation of late has been trevor jackson's metal dance series out on strut.

    really good mix of underground 80s postpunk, electronica.

    Yeah, that's great. I bought the first one on CD and loved it so much I picked it up on vinyl too.

    there is a youtube boiler room vid of him dj-ing most of the tracks from the two comps live at rough trade, its a pretty decent mix.

    Yeah, I stopped looking after about Vol.4.

    Andy Weatherall’s 9 o’clock Drop compilation also fits in with the theme.

    The Sound of Belgium comps are (partially) good for this sort of stuff too. There's 3 volumes that are all:

    CD1 - Dubby 80s tunes
    CD2 - New Beat
    CD3 - Belgian Rave
    CD4 - bad trance

    Vinyl available if you're rich...

    loving anna domino's take on post punk, really cool track here.

    moody Being alive increases risk of death.

    I got the rough trade post punk cd, that's pretty good. another I can recommend is the death disco, music from under the dance floor 78- 82, on emi.

    also, the disco not disco series on strut.

    funny how these guys aren't on any of those comps when you'd of thought from listening that'd they'd fit right in?

    just looking through my cds this morning, I add ze records story comp on strut and both the fac dance / factory records 12"s 80 -87 also on strut.


    any others of note to watch out for?

    surprised souljazz hasn't put out any, it's where I brought my maximum joy records from

    I'm sure you know these, but:

    Trevor Jackson presents Science Fiction Dancehall - when I picked this up I was expecting it to be all Dub Syndicate style 80s dub, but much of it is a lot more electronic than that. Great comp.

    Sherwood at the Controls vols 1 & 2

    Also, you delved into Minimal Wave at all? There might be some stuff you like in there.

    moody Being alive increases risk of death.

    never heard of science fiction dancehall before, will check it out.

    have plenty of sherwood stuff.

    minimal wave huh? any artists to listen out for? need to move away from new-beat stuff for a bit...

    Another comp I've though of is Teutonik Disaster. Lots of early 80s German stuff like this:

    Explorer - Rabbits
