DJ pioneer to release first album since 2001... on 12 different formats

Trevor Jackson, is to release his latest record, F O R M A T, on February 25, 2015. His first album for 14 years, F O R M A T is to be "a celebration of music as a physical object". As well as vinyl and download releases, out on the Vinyl Factory, it will also be available as a collectible set of 12 limited edition formats, each with specially designed custom packaging. The formats available include 12", 10" and 7" vinyl, CD, mini-CD, cassette, USB, VHS, MiniDisc, DAT, eight-track and reel-to-reel.

Speaking about the release, Jackson said: "Every copy of a physical recording is different, a real object that has its own little story - a one of a kind, personalised by the effort you put in to purchase it, each time you touch it, and the unique ritual that goes along with playing it. I want the people who purchase these items to feel special; they will be the only ones who possess these tracks in any form at that time. The fact culturally everything's become so convenient and easily accessible whilst in the process totally disposable is an important subject I needed to address with this project."
