Their debut single "Take No Crap" featured vocals by Danish singer Christine Christiansen and was released in 1990. The following year the single was released as "Get Serious" internationally. The song became a moderate hit on the Billboard Hot 100, but a top 10 hit on the dance chart. Their debut album, Get Serious was released on Epic Records in 1991, which was a moderate success in dance clubs in Europe. The album sold 53.000 copies in Denmark, with an additional 200.000 copies worldwide. In 1992, the group was awarded three Danish Grammy Awards for Danish Newcomer of the Year, Danish Hit of the Year ("Get Serious"), and Danish Rap/Dance Album of the Year (Get Serious).

In March 1994, Thera Hoeymans left the group to pursue a career as an actor in theatre.

Cut 'N' Move released their third and final studio album, The Sound of Now in 1995. They scored a minor hit in the U.S. with lead single "I'm Alive", which went to No. 46 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart. The song reached No. 49 in the UK chart.

In 1996 Cut 'N' Move released the greatest hits album, Into the Zone '91-'96 which included three new songs. The album was awarded Danish Dance Album of the Year at the Danish Grammy Awards. The following year the group disbanded.

In a retrospective article in 2009, Politiken called Cut 'N' Move "a kind of big sister to the 90's biggest Danish hit group Aqua" and wrote: "18 years later the band still stands as a milestone in Danish music. Cut 'N' Move was simply the band that brought dance music to the country".
