The Kush Club Presents: Pinch (Tectonic/Uk) says
This one's special!

We are lucky enough to be hosting (arguably) Bristol's king of bass music and one of the most important figures in shaping UK dance music of the modern day, Pinch!

As a DJ and producer, he has been a figurehead since 2004, releasing seminal dubstep classics such as Qawwli (a genre defying meditational masterpice) and Swish (proving that tear out dubstep can be done with absolute finesse and technique). Having released music on a veritable A-list, who's who line up of labels in the UK including Deep Medi, Honest Jons, Planet Mu, Punch Drunk and Swamp81, his credentials run deep. Along with this, he's also released albums with both Shackleton and Adrian Sherwood, two more figures in the UK bass scene whos work cannot be regarded more highly.

Of course, this is all the while building his own label, the mighty Tectonic Records. Celebrating its 10 year anniversary in 2015, Tectonic originally was born from a need to give dubstep music another home and another champion, as 2004 only held a small handful of labels releasing the music. Since then, the sound palete has grown and expanded along with the scene, seeing them release music from Pinch, Loefah, Joker, 2562, Mumdance, Logos, Kahn, Walton, Flying Lotus alongside many others, racking up approximately 150 releases in that time. Tectonic's influence and importance cannot be understated, acting as a home for the mutating, all encompassing sound of Bristol and the UK, drawing from sound system culture, Dub, Jungle, UKG, Dubstep, Techno and beyond. Recently, Pinch has also operated a secondary label, CO.LD Recordings, specifically for more loop driven dance music.

One thing however has remained, and that's Pinch's dedication to a specific sonic impetus, describing it as moody, gritty tracks with alien percussion, sci-fi dub influences and earthquake inducing baselines. It’s dance music, but it might make you dance differently.

Pinch brings his inimitable style to The TBC Club Friday 17th June. If Mala was anything to go by, this will be dance music that you will feel as much as listen to (those F1's aren't to be sneezed at).
