Steely, creaking hydraulics and muffled chatter score the opening minute of Pinch's 'Screamer', a record that continues Tectonic's remarkable year. Sparring partner Riko is on great form throughout: riding the rolling, scorched-earth beats with a natural, firecracker flow, it literally does scream.
On the flipside, Pinch goes straight artillery. Faded-out police sirens and crackly atmospherics set the scene, before 'No Justice' explodes into a relentless wave of dark, menacing bass drills. Lorda mercy!
