Pinch B2B Mumdance


2014 release. Tectonic founder Pinch teams up with Mumdance for the collaborative mix set Pinch B2B Mumdance. 2014 saw both artists receiving critical acclaim for their creative endeavors, with Pinch's CO.LD compilation winning over the likes of XLR8R, Resident Advisor, and Mixmag, while Mumdance's Take Time collaboration with Novelist (RINSE 043EP) has been turning heads across the board. Pinch B2B Mumdance acts as a musical snapshot of the sound the two artists have been building and features a host of Tectonic material alongside a selection of their collaborative works. Keen listeners will note the "VIPinch Mix" of Mumdance & Logos' "Legion" and Pinch & Mumdance's "Double Barreled Turbo Mitz," a rework of the previously released killer "Turbo Mitzi." "Noctis" and "Lucid Dreaming" are collaborations that the pair are unleashing exclusively for the very first time and Pinch's "Obsession" appears in its original form alongside a punishing remix from Shed. Mumdance, reflecting on the project, describes it as "the perfect chance to sit down with Pinch and bring together a sonic which we both feel we have been working toward for a while, albeit from very different angles. In my opinion the dance music climate in the UK is enjoying a healthy and extremely interesting transitional period; one which I would draw parallels to the '93/'94 'proto' era when people were literally making up the rules as they went along. This mix is an ode to that time and our attempt at throwing some ideas out there, with the hope of sparking some imaginations and pushing things further forward." Pinch presents a similar forward-thinking view: "I like my music to have interesting percussion; some bass, space -- and arranged with a little grace. It was there in dubstep for me for many years but then I got a bit bored with the beats. Same with D&B before that. I see this mix as a part of the next step in that story." Also includes tracks by Alex Coulton, El-B remixed by Ziro, Nurve, Asusu remixed by A Made Up Sound, and Ipman.
