Pinch, Mumdance, Joker, Walton and Ziro all feature on the 'Hard Food EP'

Congratulations to pioneering Bristol-based dubstep/bass music label Tectonic, who are about to hit the 100 releases milestone. The label's 100th release will be the Hard Food EP from Riko Dan.

You may, of course, have been expecting the 100th release to come from label boss Pinch, AKA Rob Ellis. And you'd actually only be half-wrong, because Pinch does indeed feature on the EP, as do a host of other Tectonic regulars. You can here Riko and Rob's collaboration Vibration below, while the full tracklist is as follows:

1. Riko & Joker – Hard Food
2. Riko & Pinch – Vibration
3. Riko & Walton – Slap It Up
4. Riko & Mumdance – Hungry
5. Riko & Ziro – Alright Then
6. Pinch & Mumdance ft Riko – Big Slug’ [Walton Remix]

Announcing the EP, Pinch said: "It's great to be reaching the 100th release on the label, 13 years on from when it all started. For this release we're focusing on Riko Dan - one of my all-time favorite MCs - who controls six deadly rhythms here in fine style."

Riko added: "I've enjoyed working with Tectonic on releases with Pinch and Mumdance and now it’s nice to be the main artist, with producers making beats for my EP. At this moment in time, there's no better place for me to be releasing my music than Tectonic.”
