The first bone crunching, bass bin shattering public impact from The Bug (AKA Kevin Martin) came in 2001 with the appropriately titled 'Seismic'. Since then, he has won over influential figures like Adrian Sherwood, Kid 606 and Aphex Twin with his bass heavy concoction of mutant dancehall, ragga and dub anthems which culminated in his first full length release 'Pressure'.
Loefah is without a doubt a bastion of Dubstep in the UK and his contributions to the DMZ (Coki's label) imprint could be considered key moments in the evolution of the genre; whilst his remixes for Skream (on Tempa) and his recent Tectonic outing only serve to enforce this belief.
Pinch, aka Rob Ellis, is Bristol's leading man of dubstep, responsible for a catalogue of deep, dark and innovative bass music. Alongside his own material, his Tectonic Recordings imprint has given a platform to early releases from the likes of Skream, Flying Lotus and Addison Groove.
