Gilles is back for another Saturday mix up selection and this week speaks to London based art director, designer and producer, Trevor Jackson.
Jackson's career began when he created the design company BITE IT! in 1987 and, since then, his work has been exhibited at the ICA, Barbican and the Guggenheim. His cover art has been widely celebrated; the eye-catching visual campaign he created for Soulwax's Any Minute Now netted him a whole heap of awards. Visual work aside, he has also proved himself to be an important part of UK music's fabric, having remixed the likes of U2, Massive Attack and UNKLE. He also formed the label Output Recordings, which ran until 2006 and released music from artists such as Four Tet and LCD Soundsystem. Returning to releasing his own music, Jackson's latest album FORMAT is his first album in 15 years - with each individual track being released on a spectrum of formats; 12" vinyl to MiniDisk to reel-to-reel tape to VHS.
