An all vinyl mix nowadays is indeed very rare and thnaks to Pinch you can enjoy a great one.

Nicked from the Electronic Explorations Mag, enjoy this in all its glory.


Here’s what they say:

4 years on from his 1st mix, one of Bristol’s finest producers ….Pinch has returned to EE with a classic ‘old skool’ dubstep mix for the shows 5th birthday celebrations …. the timing could not be better either … Pinch’s new compilation M.I.A. has been released today, November 19th, featuring 5 years’ worth of original production and remixes for the likes of Planet Mu, Deep Medi, punch drunk and swamp81.

Pinch::::  With dubstep having trail-blazed across the globe and becoming a household term in the last few years – I feel it’s a good time to take a breath, look back and check where all this came from originally. I’ve just released a compilation of older tracks/ rarities of my own (Pinch: Missing In Action, out on Tectonic), predominantly from that earlier period of dubstep and I’ve been revisiting that vibe and flavour myself in the hope that it can bring inspiration for new wave of UK dark rave music in the lineage of hardcore-jungle-garage-grime-dubstep to come and take it’s place. It’s about time. In the spirit of the era this mix is 100% vinyl – and all tracks are from around 2003-2007. I did it in one take and over 80 mins and I couldn’t have began to fit a mere fracture of all the important tracks in from that period – so I went for a loose approach, grabbing tunes from a pile and selecting as the mix unfolded. It is in no way a comprehensive best-of-that-era mix or anything like that. There are also lots of ‘ropey’ mix moments in there – but if anything – it makes for a more authentic ‘old skool dubstep’ experience. I hope you can put up with the mistakes and focus on the good bits instead!
