Those were the daze.

UK Garage has gone through many changes in it’s short lifetime. Call it UKG, grime, 2-step, UK funky, bassline, or a wealth of other genre-splitting names, it always has something consistent with the electronic sounds of the UK streets. Constantly drawing in a young crowd means there are always new generations ready to add their own twist and evolve, divide, and combine the music further. That’s the exciting thing about it, the constant shifting and morphing, with garage itself having descended from house music of the 80s and early 90s. Having said that, there are a few garage classics from a decade or so ago that we hope will last for many more to come. Anyone newly into garage can look back at some of the influences of today’s producers and performers and maybe learn a little about where they can take the music in the future.

From the smooth jazz influences of MJ Cole, to the pure grime of Dizzee Rascal‘s debut, to house nightclub crossovers such as De’Lacy, blend in the speed garage classic from Double 99, a remix of Gorillaz that climbed the pop charts, a slew of female vocalists, and the track that started it all for Daniel Bedingfield, we hoped to include a little slice of the UK Garage scene as it evolved through the late 90s into the early 2000s.
