DJ Trace drops ‘Zone’ EP remixes on DSCI4
Dj Trace is one of UK DnB’s most innovative and respected artists. He has been Dj-ing and producing since the early ’90s and has toured the world many times over playing his distinctive and groundbreaking style of Drum and Bass. One of Trace’s mid 90’s remixes entitled “The Mutant Remix”, is widely believed to be the creation of the “Tech-Step” genre in DnB. He recorded on many labels, Deejay Recordings, Lucky Spin, No U Turn & Prototype before founding DSCI4 Records in 1999 which has seen many groundbreaking releases and compilations…
As well as working in DnB, Dj Trace has also turned his hand to many other genre’s including deep house and breakbeat, the latter alongside longtime collaborator and co-producer, Pete Voyager.
Last Summer, DJ Trace returned to solo production after an almost two decade hiatus, creating a modern snapshot from the Techstep era in the ‘Zone EP’. Now we have remixes of the EP from three producers making big waves in the scene.
Kid Drama takes ‘Cobra’ into a 98 style roll out sure to get any party kicking with his dance floor vibes. Berlin’s duo Survey re-up ‘Overdose’ into a filthy tech-stepper infused with their clean and punchy studio techniques. Ilk, a rising star of jungle and drum and bass takes on ‘Dibby’ and rinses aggressive breakbeats intertwined with vibes from the raves of the early ’90s. The EP completes with Trace’s own VIP mix of ‘Dibby’ one for the dark side crew!
