Droppin' 2 steps is nothing short of fucking amazing. I used to buy records at a shop in town from a guy called Jakey. He had a mixtape with this tune on which I heard a couple of times & really wanted but I was the tender age of 9 or 10 at the time and only had enough money to buy a tune at a time, if that, so usually opted for something from the bargain bin. For years this tune haunted me & all I knew was that it was on Back 2 Basics (in those days there was no internet to just search for it like there is now) but I just accepted it would be 1 of those elusive tracks that would be forever implanted in my memory. I bought a job lot of battered tunes from DnB Arena around 2007 & was lucky to have records such as Meditation, Groundhog Day, Limb by Limb etc.. & there were also other vinyls on labels such as Back 2 Basics which I listened to briefly but didn't think much of. It was only a few years later when I was going through my vinyls properly to list some to sell that I had a proper listen to some of these tunes, & it was then I realised I had this tune all along, I just hadn't listened to it properly. I don't mind admitting that tears sprung to my eyes. It's a sorrowful track, starting off with a melancholy violin kinda sound and the pleading female vocals 'Don't you want me'.. Which then descend into some rolling drums with magnificent edits, where the singer seems to say 'fuck you then, onwards and upwards'.. Maybe I read too much into these tunes but then again, maybe not.. I think this whole era was a continuation of the Soul era, emotional music which actually means something and evokes many different feelings through that brief 5-6 minutes of musical magic, something which seems to be lacking today..
