Cat. Number: TEC084D

The London/Bristol axis churns up a military grade bomb from Mumdance, Pinch and Riko Dan. 'Big Slug' holds tight to a dread UK sound, all city-at-night gloom licked with apocalyptic intro and cantering bashment groove streaked by hellish metallic apparitions and Riko's yardie bark. The instrumental 'Lucid Dreaming' opens more hyperreal weightless dimensions framed by pendulous roto-rimshots and desiccated bass hits closer to gabber than grime but with the discipline of modern minimalism, anticipating a tangible evil that never comes but constantly lurks at the periphery, like some sort of sublime panic attack - summing up the vibe of 'ardcore UK dancefloors.

That's the A-side 'Backdraft'; a crushing reduction of darkside sub pressure and shanking stabs with a 127bpm heartbeat. B-side, 'Finesse' follows that line with dread rollers purpose and 'Ghost' finds him stretching out on a deadly unique 160bpm flex, somewhere between halfstep D&B minimalism and Twwth's icy electro.

GRIME / FWD

Cat. Number: TEC081

Lean, mean hybrids of UK rolige and European techno from Roska, Roska, Roska. Back for his 3rd outing on Tectonic, he reflects the label's current aesthetic with tightest, jabbing drums and dread bass for the darkside skank 'n shuffle. 'Hyperion' rolls with effortless momentum guided by zombied 4/4 bass pressure and frankly fxxking evil drones; 'Off' is distinctly UK-centric, synching the widest swing from fractured drums and offset sub swells for the dancers; 'Only Human' really gets our vote though, setting a pensile balance of crisp rimshots and slicing claps poised with noirish dub chamber vibes precipitating the nastiest bass shapes..

Acre on a mad one for Tectonic with four brukken, mongrel club constructs. In the best sense, each cut nimbly evades concrete classification, twysting out between battered 'ardcore mutation reminding of Millie & Andrea in 'Ping' to the bit-crushed aquatic dancer, 'Blue Moon' and further out into hyper Afro-centric styles with the Shangaanese percolations ov 'Icon', and an MDMA-smudged flux of chords and dub detritus in the bittersweet close, 'Reload'.

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.

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.

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…

Cat. Number: TEC067

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.

Distance drops 'Blue Meanie', a pinnacle of Pinch's Fabric 61 mix, 'pon his Tectonic label. As far as darkside dubstep rave goes, this is the business - all serrated synthlines and unrepentant snares weighed out with tumultuous subs. 'Searching' is more experimental, atmospheric, working with fractious, scything rhythms and eerie chorales to chilling effect.

Dubstep titan Rob Ellis aka Pinch heads up a timely collection of his original tracks, remixes and rarities released outside his Tectonic stable. There's no better introduction to his ascetic, optimised Bristolian sound than this disc's mighty opener, 'Qawwali VIP', the special request B-side to his signature drop on Planet Mu way back in 2006 which still gives us shivers now. It's placed next to a rare 116bpm remix excursion, turning Gaudi + Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's 'Dil Da Rog Muka Ja Mali' into a downstroked swinger, next to the li… Read more

Roska returns to Tectonic for two tracky, stripped down Funky-and-dubstep cuts. 'Blurry' is a badass tribalist DJ tool, synching punchy congas and shifty hi-hats on a swollen sub in minimal fashion for the 'floor. 'Spearhead' takes that aesthetic one step further and slower/faster, arranging micro-fine drums and a rasping, overblown bass for a dutty 140bpm skank.

Cat. Number: TEC063

Heavy footwork-influenced styles from newcomer Decibel, new in on Tectonic. If you enjoyed the deeper, airbrushed 'n screwed juke styles of Slava then you'll be all over this: especially 'G.A.P.' with its monstrously pitched down vocal barks and woozy blue keys. 'M.S.T.' comes over like a post-UKG take on Detroit techno, shades of Joy O and Pariah, while 'Miss' is a very 2012 synthesis of sparkling16-bit arpeggios and ricocheting 808 toms. 'Gyal' is the most adventurous track and also the best: rough, tough, machine-gunning future-dancehall that'll slay any dancefloor it goes near.

Two swung, techy killers on Tectonic for the summer dances. On the evidence of this two-tracker, new face Grenier is one to watch - on 'Vendetta' he combines trippy, almost tranced-out arpeggios with the sub-low rollage and stop-start intensity of grime, while on the magnificent, monstrous 'Uncertain' he squeezes old-school rave vamps into a modern steppers' house template, accenting with mellow synth pads and cheap dancehall horn parps. Priceless wares for the dancefloor, recommended to fans of 2562/AMUS, Shed and the like.
