PINCH - UNDERWATER DANCEHALL (2CD)


This is the debut full-length release by Bristol's Pinch (Rob Ellis), head of the Tectonic imprint. The dubstep album: a concept still in its early days of existence. In a relatively new genre dominated by vinyl, many artists would not take the plunge into more ambitious territories and be lucky enough to have an outlet to support their endeavors: enter Pinch. Having already garnered a huge amount of success with CD releases in the past (namely the Tectonic Plates compilation and Cyrus artist album), the time was right for Ellis to turn the spotlight on himself for a full-length. But rather than simply string together a compilation of sold-out 12"s and re-edits, Pinch headed back into the studio, gathering vocalists around him and immersing himself in the idea of the album as a format, a concept, a complete vision. The results speak for themselves, setting the bar high and in the process taking dubstep to a whole new level -- leaving budding producers to simply tag along behind him. The first CD features vocal contributions by Juakali, Yolanda, Rudey Lee and Indi Kaur, while the second CD is devoted to instrumental tracks. For the limited edition double vinyl version, eight of the finest cuts are offered in a stripped-down instrumental form. (label info)
