A. Twister

AA. Apocalypse

Tempo Records present SPEED, a new Tempo Records sublabel & project released on a limited handnumbered edition 180gram collectors picture disc vinyl with original & legendary producers who helped shaping the Drum & Bass scene. First on SPEED is the legendary ‘Techstep’ originator DJ Trace aka Duncan Hutchison. DJ Trace remixed T Power’s ‘Horny Mutant Jazz’ (S.O.U.R.) in 1995, now more commonly known as ‘The Mutant Remix’. This classic underground D&B ‘cult’ track went onto inspire a plethora of other producers, and was hailed by many as the dawn of ‘Techstep’. On this picture disc you’ll find two harsh, deep ‘Techstep’ tracks, ‘Twister’ on the A side & ‘Apocalypse’ on the AA side with that distinct Trace spirit which still lives on today. Collectors please note: This release comes as a strictly limited handnumbered 180gram silver Picture Disc Vinyl pressing with a high quality polybag sleeve (including a handnumbered qty stamped silver sticker on polybag corner) + all tracks mastered by Stuart Hawkes of Metropolis Mastering London. First come, first served!

Please note: This is a picture disc vinyl and the sound quality is not as good as on a regular standard vinyl! This is a concept collector’s item! For the full sound experience, you may buy a full digital wav or flac quality download.

More Artist info:
DJ Trace co-operated with old time friends Nico, Ed Rush and Fierce on the highly acclaimed LP ‘Torque’ for Nico’s No U Turn imprint. Shortly after in 1999 and after having releases on seminal labels: Grooverider’s Prototype and Ed Rush & Optical’s Virus, Trace started his own imprint ‘DSCI4’. The first release ‘Sniper’, produced with Lucky Spin buddy Pete Parsons aka Voyager, went on to be hailed as a D&B anthem.
