La Vibe radio show #17.11 – Tectonic special!

Yesterday’s radio show was all about Pinch’s seminal label from Bristol, Tectonic, one that helped me fall in love with Dubstep back in 2006. All vinyl!

Dale Cooper La Vibe radio show #17.11 - Tectonic special

60 minutes were obviously not enough to cover a more than a decade of Tectonic, one of the pioneering and most important record labels in Dubstep history…
I am the proud owner of the 50 first Tectonic releases, and much more actually, but at some point I stopped consistently buying them all.
I really love the direction Tectonic has taken through the years, keeping true to its original dark, bass driven signature sound, though easily escaping from the pure Dubstep frame. The regular appearences of Roska or Addison Groove in their darkest mood are a great example of how a label can welcome unexpected artists without sacrificing its identity.

By the way, the latest Tectonic release to date, Ipman’s Depatterning LP is an absolute masterpiece, check it out, seriously.
