Follow-up remixes of Notorious B.I.G.’s “Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems” paved the way for their 2000 debut album, Dance Floor, released on Groovilicious, brandishing three of their signature tracks, “Men Beat Their Men,” “Do It Again,” and “Don’t Look Behind You.” In the ’90s and early ’00s Razor & Guido’s tracks were a staple in sets by fellow New York City jocks Junior Vasquez, Danny Tenaglia, Jonathan Peters, Erick Morillo and Johnny Vicious. Over the years the duo continued to produce at a nonstop pace.
