DJ Trace was an early member of the tight-knit crew of producers constituting popular techstep drum'n'bass label No U-Turn. Like colleagues Nicoand Ed Rush, Trace's first crack at broad exposure came through the Techsteppin' compilation, released by the Emotif label and containing a number of tracks licensed from No U-Turn studios. Released in 1995, the compilation helped seed a new direction in drum'n'bass, one characterized by heavy use of electronics, cavernous beats and basslines, and the dystopian histrionics that have since become trademarks of the No U-Turn/Nu Black sound. Trace's 1995 release on Emotif, "The Mutant" (itself a remix of T-Power's "Mutant Jazz"), also spawned a remix of its own. "Mutant Revisited" became an influential trial run of tech's by now cliched "hoover" bassline and rolling, relentless breaks. Today he runs DSCI4, a label that has pushed new producers through such as Black Sun Empire,SKC & Chris SU and many more in recent years as well as having legendery names like Bad company, Kemal & Rob Data, Stakka & Skynet and Optical record for the label. Now in its tenth year DSCI4 is set to release the final chapter in the Spy Technology compilation series in 2008.
