MA4 - Step Into Our World
MA4 - Step Into Our World (Formation Records, 1997)
I've covered Formation Records a few times recently but couldn't resist writing about this tune as, like yesterday's track, it samples KRS-One's 'Step Into A World (Rapture's Delight)'. It appeared on the fourth and final part of DJ SS' series of records under the MA moniker which date back to 1993 and presumably began as a reference to the MA-1 and MA-2 bomber jackets that were essential fashion items for any discerning raver in the early nineties. Other tunes in the series include classics such as 'Ruffige' and 'Hearing Is Believing'.
'Step Into Our World' starts off with a wind swept intro featuring drums that include what sounds like a washboard of all things. It just samples the "Step into a world" line from the KRS-One track and only uses it once, just before the drop. The main body of the tune features 'It's A New Day' based drums, which always remind me of DJ Die's 'Autumn', and a big wobbly bassline. A minimal stepper of a tune that's great to mix with and is available to buy over at Drum&BassArena.
