DJ PINCH AT ROUGH TRADE EAST! friday 22/5 at 7pm.
Pinch's reputation as a pioneer of dancefloor dubstep styles is truly a well earned one. His music and work over the past five years have lifted him from underground roots and gained him worldwide recognition as a producer and DJ, bringing cutting edge bass heavy drops to an ever expanding fan base. The ground-breaking, critically acclaimed debut long player, 2007's 'Underwater Dancehall', has become a milestone in the history of dubstep, firmly establishing Pinch as a key player in the development of the scene.
As founder and label head of Tectonic, Pinch has developed a roster of today's most innovative producers, releasing a succession of cutting-edge singles from the likes of Skream, RSD, 2562, Benga, Martyn, Flying Lotus, Joker, Peverelist, DQ1, Digital Mystikz, Distance and more.
The label's forthcoming release 'Tectonic Plates 2' brings together the latest massive drops from the series, most of which are now sold out. The second disc is an unbelievable mix from Pinch himself, featuring tons of unreleased dubplates, mixed only as Pinch knows how. Tectonic has become established as a leading global force, alongside the likes of the highly influential Tempa and Hyperdub imprints, bringing knowledge and authenticity with every release.\
