Rudest dread techno charge from noob, Nurve, on Pinch's Tectonic. The squashed techno murder of his A-side, 'Wrong Number' was previously sandwiched into the ace Pinch B2B Mumdance mix CD, and is now unleashed as a tracky, galloping tool consolidating all corners of the darkside underground. Flipside, he ups the funk ante with a twysted, techy bomb coming off like some Skam joint gone Bristol, plus a mean bit of whirring 2-step techno bruk in 'Spasm'. Watch yer bons bons.

Proper Bass/Techno hybrids from Pinch and Shed on Tectonic. Recently premiered on the Pinch & Mumdance mix CD, 'The Obsession (Possession)' renders Pinch at his most militant, shark-eyed with pendulous bass hits and nexx-level 'ardcore stabs reduced to potent base form. One dab; you're done. Shed's remix amps the underlying tension 'til the filters crack and the 'ardcore harpies swarm forth charged by swollen Reese bass and scissoring techno swing. Deadly wares.

Pinch and Mumdance go B2B carving thru 19 exclusive versions and unreleased tracks from the the Tectonic and Cold laboratories. Following their september 2013 mix together, it's rooted UK dance futurism at its finest, twisting the lines of D&B, dubstep and techno thru grime and up-to-the-second bass dimensions. Opening and closing with atmospheric bookends by Logos, they skulk between Alex Coulton's darkside tribalism 'Sinners', Pinch and Shed versions of 'Obsession (The Possession)' to Mumdance's manic 'Sprawl', to Ziro's rigid overhaul of El-B's 'Buck & Bury', Nurve's aquate… Read more

Tectonic return to roots with the heavy dub mysticism of Young Echo crew's Cris Ebdon aka one half of Zhou aka Ishan Sound, backed with weighty remix from Khan. As with Ebdon's Ishan Sound dispatches for Peng Sound and ZamZam Sounds, his 'Namkha' and 'NN Special' riddims run quaking subbass depth charges and duppied atmospheres with a distinct Casualty atmosphere harking back to earliest dubstep sounds. Remixing, Khan ratchets the bass pressure with signature dread vibes and radiant dubbing.

Two decorated rave dons partner up for a heavyweight rolige session. Mumdance arrives off the back of the best material in his arsenal, namely his collaborations with Logos and that 'It's Peak' madness for UTTU, whilst Pinch continues to find his groove in the 130bpm/bass zone. Up top, their 'Turbo Mitzi' is potent as the title suggests, oscillating waves of darkside synth bliss with cold, skin-prickling electro-bass and duppied rave gasps to take over the dance. Dung there, 'Whiplash' is a more rugged beast synching dynamic whipcracks with crunching construction yard samples, bass surges and brilliant, daring use of near-silence in the anti-drops. Recommended.

Clipping the heels of their killah 'Genesis EP', Mumdance & Logos rinse off 2013 with two searing 'ardcore mutations for Tectonic. Recalibrating the genes of '93-style jungle with bootybass claps, pneumatic bass and razing mentasms, the darkcore dread of 'Legion' is tilted at the most delirious hours of the dance, whilst 'Proto' comes with a kaotic chemistry of Belgian techno hoovers, Detroit-style pads and timeless darkside swerve.

Guido's sophomore follow-up to his acclaimed Punch Drunk LP is an assuredly mature and measured affair refining his feel for fluoro funk. Eleven tracks juice the tastiest traces of sino-grime, purple funk, jazz-trance (yesss), R&B and off-world folk with an inquisitive, considered approach that's deeply involving for the listener. Highlights have to be the cheeky juxtaposition of oriental hooks, scat and spurting grime on 'Heartful Dodger', the spaced-out keys and twinkle-toed bounce of 'Jupiter' or the militant pomp of 'NRG' for starters…

Tectonic give up the first taste of Guido's 2nd album, Mood Of Love': two cuts of taut, stirring UK R&Bass. 'Green Eyed Monster' hangs Emma-Lou's sensuous vocals on squelchy, soaring arpeggios, breezy strings and a laidback beat with a cool slow/fast tension; 'Rain In The Sahara' is trickier, synching stumbling electro-dub groove with trickling, rhythmelodic counter inna sort of lush, 4th world instrumental grime style.

Distal does it like no other on his best drop yet for Tectonic. Four constructions tessellate techno, trap, footwork, ballroom house and 'ardcore with nimble flair and unique vision. A-side fires off the unhinged snare rolls, swirling strings and quaking subs of 'Ridge City' beside the cooled-out fusion of New York electro bass jab and cowbells synched with gabber kicks and gloomcore pads on 'Drone Circle'; B-side blends EBM-ish bass jut, UK acid techno signatures and a razing, metal-styled lead riff, and '.25 Automatic' takes bucking, sho-nuff Ballroom house to somewhere darker, miltant and technofied.

Decibel gallops back onto Tectonic with a pair of technoid bass attacks. His A-side 'Swirl' sounds like Scuba impersonating vintage Plastikman after a couple of red bulls. B-side 'Poke' fares a bit better with staccato rounds of machine percussion dubbed off for the steppers.

Pinch & Roska reprise the London-Bristol connection for Tectonic. their collaborative 'Should Rolla' hinges on a darker, restrained halfstep lean with rolling congas and vintage-sounding '06 bass moves, proper dread stalker styles. Solo, Roska's 'Asbestos' indulges his darkest tastes to killer effect with sinuous, minimalist syncopation accentuated by crashing snares and staggered, technoid kicks inna gloomy chamber dub.

The Dark Sky trio arrive at Tectonic with a double head of techy bass contortions. Much like their more doomy trio counterparts, Old Apparatus, you can almost tell from the complex organisation of these tracks that more than one pair of hands is involved, and, like OA, it really works to their advantage. A-side 'Confunktion' is a finely segmented garage-techno roll-out, stealthily approaching and receding from gloomy mystery to muscular bass torque and spatialised drums and back to gripping effect. B-side 'Double U' is delectably spacious and frictionless, carrying all the melody in dotty, Bubblin' drum cadence while the bass plummet or vaults in halfstep and 4/4 knots.

Beneath brings his murky dubstep and Funky hybrids to Tectonic in heavy style. 'Duty' sets up for the stagger and waggle crew with loose drums offsetting old skool Loefah-style subs and plangent synth shapes that open and envelope an uncoiling, industrial-strength steppers' groove. 'Texers' flexes out on a badboy rollers tip; elliptical bass and hardbody snares synch under darkside Ed Rush-style synthlines and a chirping early '00s grime hook that's got us by the balls.

Guardian of the purple legacy Gemmy arrives on Tectonic (his first release on the label, though he did knock out 2010's 'Maroon Chant' on Pinch's other imprint, Earwax) with one of his best releases in a fair while. 'Warrior' is a back to basics affair, and one to be applauded: it's a lithe dubstep roller punctuated with snippets of corny martial arts movie dialogue and, of course, those signature Gemmy synths, and you can see it slotting neatly into many a respectable modern dance. 'The Dome' is classic Gemmy, or Gemmy-by-numbers, depending on which way you look at it: all low-riding 808 drums, garish rave vamps and Megadrive FX.
