Dub step” DJ Pinch has released countless bassbin shattering riddims on innovative labels such as Planet Mu, Soul Jazz and his very own Tectonic Recordings.

Having brought dub step music to Bristol in early 2004 with his Context and late Sub loaded nights, Rob Ellis aka Pinch worked hard to develop the sound in his home town and the city has flourished as a result of his inputs. Five years on and he can lay
claim to the title â€˜Bristolâ€™s Godfather of Dubstepâ€™ as he is often daubed by journalists and alike â€“ his original music productions being highly sought after, even finding their way to the silver screen (â€˜War Dubâ€™ featured in Universal Picturesâ€™ â€˜Children Of Menâ€™).
Pinch runs the successful Tectonic imprint, alongside Earwax and looks after Kapsize and Caravan on behalf of artists Joker and October. Starting in 2005 Tectonic quickly grew in reputation to become known as one of the most reliable labels alongside
Hyperdub, DMZ and Tempa. Releasing reputed artists such as Loefah, Skream and bringing new signings such as Cyrus and 2562 to the table, Tectonic is also known as the main home for Pinchâ€™s own productions, delivering the widely acclaimed â€˜Underwater Dancehallâ€™ LP in late 2007. The LP received huge support from the worlds press receiving 9/10 in Vice, 5/5 in Mixmag and album of the month in DJ Mag â€“ to name a
Pinchâ€™s first solo release came in 2006 with â€˜Qawwaliâ€™ on the highly respected Planet Mu
label and received critical acclaim in world press. Boomkat.com, for instance said,
â€œFor us, this is the most flawless excursion from Planet Mu to date – and without doubt one of the deepest, most involving and subtle dub step twelve released in the last 6 years.â€ (http://www.boomkat.com/item.cfm?id=20756)
Pinch went on to release also acclaimed â€˜Punisherâ€™ later that year, as well as â€˜Pepper Sprayâ€™ in 2007 and â€˜Attack Of The Giant Killer Robot Spidersâ€™ earlier this year. Similarly he released leading tracks on Soul Jazzâ€™s Box Of Dub 2 compilation in 2007,
with a follow up single in 2008, â€˜Chamber Dubâ€™. His productions have received radio plays on many stations across the globe, including regular coverage on BBC Radio One shows such as Mary-Anne Hobbsâ€™ Breezeblock and Rob Da Bank â€“ even providing Radio One with exclusively prepared guest DJ mixes.
As a result of his production skills Pinch has been asked to remix high calibre artists such as Horace Andy & Ashley Beedle (for Berlin based !K7), the great Qawwali vocal legend Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan (who, it is speculated, has sold as many records as Elvis Presley!) courtesy of San Francisco based Six Degrees and London based electro-pop outfit Simean Mobile Disco for Wichita Records.
His reputation has taken him across the globe over the last few years, having played across most of Europe, as well as Russia, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and even China (being the 2nd UK dub step artist ever to be invited to play in China).
Pinch is regarded by his fans and peers alike as one of the main players in dub step â€“ always pushing boundaries forward both by means of his original productions and in his cutting edge dub plate led DJ sets.
