Tempo Records present SPEED; a new project releasing on limited collectors picture disc vinyl with original & legendary producers out of the D&B 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 which 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 is a strictly limited handnumbered 'silver' picture disc vinyl collectors edition. Mastered by the legendary Stuart Hawkes of Metropolis Mastering, London. First come, first served!

Alongside the SPEED imprint, Tempo is launching another new sublabel TempoDubs focusing on house, breakbeat, techno and electro vibes with tracks already forthcoming from LEGOWELT and DUPLEX and non drum and bass tracks from DIGITAL. As well as all that will be a new album from label owner PRPLX in the pipeline titled “MERCURIUS” and you can also expect more new music on TEMPO from RESPONSE & PLISKIN, FURNEY, ACIDLAB and AHMAD all forthcoming in 2020.
