DJ Set

Pinch is known for many things bass related - whether it's his productions/remixes, DJ sets, labels or events, he has excelled at all levels. His Subloaded night, operating since 2004, brought dubstep to Bristol - the scene's first destination outside of London's conceptual FWD>> at Plastic People. Carving a unique niche in forward-thinking electronic music, his Tectonic label, established in 2005, showcased early releases from the likes of Loefah, Skream, 2562, Digital Mystikz, Distance, Flying Lotus, Joker, Addison Groove, and Peverelist. Recently Pinch launched a new imprint, Cold Recordings, as an outlet for darkside bass driven mutations of house and techno. Pinch's own productions have always been well received by the press over the years, having sprawled across the likes of Planet Mu, Soul Jazz, Punch Drunk, Deep Medi, Swamp 81. Similarly he has remixed a range of music styles for labels including Ninja Tune, Warp, Wichita, Wax, On-U Sound and 2 Kings - always to devastating effect. Pinch is prolific in his collaborative work too, most notably working alongside Shackleton for late 2011's 'Pinch & Shackleton' album, released on Honest Jons to much critical acclaim. Pinch also works with Distance under the guise 'Deleted Scenes' as well as having released collaborations with Loefah, Peverelist, Roska, Photek and most recently, alongside UK dub legend Adrian Sherwood (as 'Sherwood & Pinch') on a forthcoming album. Pinch's DJ sets are highly regarded worldwide, bending genres and expectations with his always fresh cut  selection of acetate dubplates and highly sought after vinyls. He's been invited to record mixes for BBC R1, 1Xtra, Kiss FM, Resident Advisor, FACT, Red Bull and the Fabriclive CD series in Jan 2012 (Fabriclive61).
