Tectonic is a British electronic music label, founded and run by Rob Ellis (Pinch)[1] which focuses primarily on Dubstep and its related genres. As one of the key founding dubstep labels, alongside Tempa, DMZ, Hyperdub, and Hotflush, Tectonic became a focal point for the Bristol scene, as well as introducing artists and releases that were among the first to bridge a gap between dubstep and techno.

Alongside seminal releases from artists such as Skream, Benga, Digital Mystikz & Joker, Tectonic has also been responsible for some of the scenes most highly acclaimed[by whom?] albums - particularly, 2562's Unbalance[2] and Pinch's Underwater Dancehall.[3]
