Boomkat Product Review:
Even since before dubstep exploded into the public consciousness at the beginning of 2006 Tectonic Records have been one of maybe three or four labels that have maintained a focussed vision and reliably consistent output pushing at the boundaries of the genre. Helmed by DJ Pinch, and featuring a roll call of the best producers in the game, the label still holds a vice-like grip on the scene particularly as the latest series of Tectonic Plates fixes its place in the bags of dubstep players across the world. As the series reaches it's climax this CD version drops with one disc of unmixed tracks from the vinyls and another mixed by Pinch featuring too many exclusives to count. The unmixed CD collects together tracks from Martyn, 2562, Flying Lotus, Joker, Pinch, Peverelist ('Junktion' remixed by Shed!!!), Skream, Benga and RSD for a veritable Bass jamboree to enjoy in the comfort of your own home. For a proper future shock check the second disc mixed by Pinch. Starting with Peverelist's remix of 'Waterfallz' is a choice move in our books, but proceeding to drop unreleased and exclusive tracks from Loefah's 'Just A Beat', Peverelist's highly sought after 'Blues', Mala's Answer Me', 2652's 'Third Wave' & 'Love In Outer Space' is just ruling tings hard! I can't be arsed writing the rest of the tracks down (there's 27 in total) but you can rest assured they're all of the highest calibre and mixed tighter than a pair of Topman duds. Well recommended!
