Icons EP
Icons EP (12")
Cat: TEC 080. Rel: 27 Nov 14
  1. Ping
  2. Blue Moon
  3. Icon
  4. Reload
Review: Having previously popped up on Cold Recordings with some bleak and futuristic techno, Acre now moves from one Pinch-helmed label to another, making his Tectonic debut with a thunderous clout sure to firmly establish him in the melee of contemporary darkside producers. "Ping" flits between hoover rave pressure, grubby drum breaks and razor-sharp drum programming with deftness, while "Blue Moon" has a psychoactive quality about its finely realised blips and bleeps. "Icon" is an even more daring excursion into a kind of futuristic tribalism, while "Reload" eschews the dancefloor altogether in favour of an experimental study in sound design. It's staggering material produced with flair and imagination, and it sounds like nothing else out there right now.

  12. Better Strangers (4:29)
Review: Of the many fresh faces that have come to light on Pinch's Cold Recordings, Manchester-based artist Acre has represented one of the most diverse propositions with his spots on Lost Codes (and more recently Codes), but he also has managed to follow label mate Ipman in bridging the gap over to Pinch's original institutional imprint Tectonic. After the Icons EP back in 2014, Acre now steps up with an album which fully explores his unique take on UK bass traditions. There is a lot to take in at first glance, from experimental excursions such as "Spiral" through to winsome beat studies such as "Always Crashing", with plenty of room for moody attitude in a reflection of the ever mutating definition of British soundsystem music.

  1. Confunktion
  2. Double U
Review: With the ripples emanating from their bass music concoctions spreading ever wider, dynamic trio Dark Sky make the move to Tectonic to nudge that very label's remit into new territory. With their previous form on 50 Weapons and Black Acre amongst others, "Confunktion" sounds like a logical next step in limber but deadly accurate electro stylings. They don't lean on obvious tropes of the genre, bringing a more modern bass music slant to the synths and fully employing studio skills to make for an addictive, head-snapping beast of a track. "Double U" heads into a freakier domain defined by globulous synth drops and a tribal groove as fruity as it is funky.

The Boxer (12")

Dirty Dubstep/Trap/Grime
  1. The Boxer
  2. The Boxer (Darqwan remix)
Review: Rob Ellis aka Pinch drops one of the biggest dubstep tunes of 2010 in "The Boxer". It shows the Bristolian at his no holds barred, unyielding best U militant basslines, skittering tribal percussion and ethereal moans all combine for a tear out that stands above the pretenders. Flip over for a remix from fellow dubstep veteran Darqwan, who throws a cheeky vocal sample on top for added hands-up effect.

Counter Culture EP
Cat: TEC 114. Rel: 21 Sep 21
  1. A Demon In My View (5:30)
  2. Counter Culture (4:43)
  3. Ashes (4:50)
  4. Bedlam (4:14)
Review: Following releases on the likes of Gourmet, Encrypted, Deep Dark & Dangerous and DNO, US talent Sectra makes his debut on Tectonic. Four tracks, all veering and weaving between genres and sounds, there's a strong experimental fusion running across the textures and tempos. 'A Demon In My View' is a frazzled, high voltage halftime piece that's brittle with tension. It sets the scene for the rest of the EP as 'Counter Culture' strip things right back for a blunt-nosed 120BPM techno march, 'Ashes' flips back into 140 mode with an almost electro-like deep space paranoia feel before 'Bedlam' brings us back to earth with a slow and low droney bump. What a trip.

Tectonic EP
Tectonic EP (hand-stamped 12")
Cat: TEC 112. Rel: 19 Oct 20
  1. Try (4:32)
  2. Box (6:46)
  3. Sweep (5:05)
Review: Fresh from his junglised Hoover1 investigations, Rene Pawlowitz returns to his Shed alias and makes his debut on Pinch's Tectonic with three ace flashbacks to an exciting time of fusion between dubstep and techno around the late 2000s. 'Try' sets the scene with those tumbling, smoky drums synonymous with the time. Set to the backdrop of a rising, psychedelic build and faraway vocal tones, it's a dubby side to Shed we're often teased with but never get to fully taste. It's backed by two more exemplary explorations; 'Box' is dub techno to the very core, all grumbling subs and industrial elements while 'Sweep' brings the four/fours into the mix for a big fat juggernaut finale. What an EP.
