UK dubstep producer and Tectonic head Rob Ellis aka Pinch presents a remix album of his hit track "Get Up" from his groundbreaking 2007 debut Underwater Dancehall (TEC 003CD/TEC 018LP). Since its inception, dubstep has endlessly reinvented itself, reflecting ten years and more of UK bass culture -- the anthemic quality of the original still stands more relevant than ever. Never one to do things by halves, Pinch has used the interim period wisely, securing the remix services of the finest producers out there. RSD has had a fantastic 2009 -- rocking shores stateside to Japan and at long last receiving due acclaim for his central role in shaping the Bristol sound. Rob Smith delivers a master class production, which has already been ruining audiences on dubplate. Guido brings an astonishing version and shows himself to be his own man -- by turns luxuriant and yet pared back to its limber essentials -- incorporating deep synth-funk and garage styles while still revealing a sizeable low-end all underpinning a show-stopping arrangement of futuristic soul. Jack Sparrow warms up with an early taste of the recent production form which has prompted Pinch to request a full Tectonic album from him in 2010 -- fabulous, low-slung killer vibes, a subtle and deeply meditative, thoughtful version primed for deeper dancefloors with a huge, deep funk coda to explore on the boards. L.V. brings the soulful vibes to an apex -- his easy moving, open form disco mix is reminiscent of classic Sly & Robbie Compass Point sides with Grace Jones -- in a word, timeless. An indisputable classic tune in optimum versions -- treasure them and play them loud.
