Tempo Records present SPEED, a new Tempo Records sublabel & project released on a limited edition 180gramm collectors picture disc vinyl with original & legendary producers who shaped the Drum & Bass scene. First on SPEED is the legendary ‘Techstep’ originator DJ Trace aka Duncan Hutchison. Trace first got introduced to the rave scene in 1989 at London’s Heaven nightclub. A session with Aston Harvey (Freestylers) at a Soho studio lead to Trace’s first release, ‘Inception’, an EP on Orbital Records and launching Trace onto the DJ circuit. It wasn’t long before Trace began his Kool FM show alongside MC Ryme Tyme. Fast forward to 1995 and living between Philadelphia and London Trace remixed T Power’s ‘Horny Mutant Jazz’ (S.O.U.R.), 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 180g Silver Handnumbered 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!
