For a few sweet years at the turn of the century, UK garage ruled the clubs and radio waves. Rising quickly from magesy download underground to the mainstream thanks to its combination of R&B soul, feel-good vocals, bubblin’ MC lyrics and infectious basslines, it’s commercial pop success was relatively short-lived but the real truth is that as a vibe, it never went away. What was once a ‘London Thing’ has now truly spread globally in the intervening years, influencing numerous artists such as Disclosure, Four Tet, Burial and more and birthing multiple genres, including grime, dubstep, UK funky and modern bass music. In this collection, we’ve gone all-in, using many of the original synths, keyboards, and techniques of the time to create a truly authentic homage to UK Garage with a specific focus on late-nineties 2-Step and the pirate radio era.
