Jack Sparrow returns for Pinch's Tectonic, on mighty form and currently
unassailable. 2010 sees the label delivering in company of the highest
grade. Carefully unpacking some considerable new studio scientifics,
after last summer's wonderful debut for the label 'The Chase / The
Fullest' (TEC030). 'Terminal' is utter killer materials - your genuine
anthem material we suspect.
The intro suggests Shackleton on the desk with Bryn Jones on hand drums,
soon its apparent they're boasting Iration Steppas system - suddenly the
war of the roses has gone sonic and plays back in unity. Proper sound
system wares, musically let's say Trans-Pennine via North Africa, mixed
down in a Bristol blues bunker. Further layers of bashy percussion build
to a head while honed to the bone fully funked heatwave bass lays waste
- then the muttered spoken words "I know some things that you don't
know..." ushers us out of the drop: top drawer boogie music for
bashments and funk parlours. Incredibly exciting and pretty much
Where the A side bears a new school flex with some future proofed
funkstep manoeuvres, 'Tormented' on the AA arrives fully basted -
glacial movements, a rockstone bass lays waste as gradual tension and
eventual dementia build. True dubstep.
Both tracks are evidence of a talented producer really coming of age
production wise, they speak volumes for Sparrow, the label's careful
mentoring and for the sheer fertility, interest and excitement around
this music at this time.
