Pinch built his name and reputation during the experimental, early years of UK dubstep. Since then, he has continued to push bass-driven UK electronic music in expansive directions, by means of his own productions as well as via his flagship label, Tectonic Recordings, and the more recently formed Cold Recordings.
With releases and remixes that span the likes of Planet Mu, Swamp 81, Deep Medi, Soul Jazz, Honest Jons, Ninja Tune, Wax and many more, Pinch has consistently produced challenging music for the dance floor, with a focus on rhythmical form, bass and texture. He has collaborated on albums with Shackleton and Adrian Sherwood, as well as singles with Photek, Loefah, Distance (as Deleted Scenes), Roska as well as vocalists including Riko Dan and Killa P. He regularly collaborates with Mumdance to make twisted dancefloor bangers and, with whom he also released the DJ mix ‘Pinch B2B Mumdance’ as well as having contributed to the legendary Fabriclive mix series and Resident Advisor and FACT’s featured mix podcasts.
As a long standing vinyl enthusiast, Pinch still plays the globe with his vinyls and acetate dubplates in tow – going that extra mile to deliver an authentic sonic. His sets span a wide range of interconnecting sounds, bringing together elements from techno, grime, dubstep, jungle, electronica, dancehall, dub and beyond. Having led the winning team to success in a Bristol edition of Red Bulls Culture Clash series, Pinch knows how to get a crowd moving.
Peverelist has been at the very heart of the Bristol music scene since starting work behind the counter at the legendary Rooted Records in 2001. He spent the 2000s deeply involved in the reinvention of Bristol music, whilst carving out a name for himself as a producer, writing bonafide classic tracks of the era such as Roll With The Punches (Punch Drunk), Dance Til The Police Come (Hessle Audio) and Circling (Skull Disco).
In 2011 Pev launched his current label project Livity Sound Recordings. Working closely with fellow Bristol artists Kowton and Asusu, he created something more personal, fusing his influences of UK rhythms, the sonics of US & European techno and the textures of Jamaican dub music. The label quickly gained critical recognition and has become one of the most influential UK labels of the decade.
Pev's latest LP 'Tessellations' was released on Livity Sound in 2017 to great acclaim, a distillation of his sound and his most definitive work to date. With a slew of releases planned for 2018, the label continues to evolve, define and reshape UK club music.
As a DJ, Peverelist tours extensively across the globe playing both underground venues and iconic clubs alike, pushing his distinctive sound worldwide.
