Ryme Tyme & Trace - Move VIP
Ryme Tyme & Trace - Move VIP (1210, 2000)
The original of this track, released on Traces's DSCI4 imprint, is a solid techstep roller but this VIP version totally overhauls it and is just pure filth. The intro teases you with distorted synths and a hazy 'Move' vocal before the drums come in and the tune builds until unleashing a nasty two note riff on the 3rd and 4th beats coupled with a pulsating bassline that never fails to move feet despite the dark vibe. I don't think this tune quite got the recognition it deserved at the time but it remains one of my personal favourites and is still coveted by many enthusiasts of the style.
