Forgotten Treasure: Lynden David Hall “Forgive Me” (Artful Dodger Remix)

Ahhhh I miss those classic 2step days. Back in 1999 to 2003ish every single R&B track came with 2step remixes on the 12′ single. Artful Dodger, Sunship, MJ Cole, Groove Chronicles… good ol’ days. This is amongst my favorites from those days. Lynden David Hall was a very talented british …

Future Classic: Altered Natives “Danny Does Acid EP”

Talk about a holiday treat. Mr. Altered Natives, definitely one of the producers that killed us in 2010 is hitting us up with a free EP working on his Acid influences. Acid House that is… I was having a chat with him about some his influences (read the post here) …

Forgotten Treasure: Tuff Jam “Feel My Love” (1997)

Holy gariiidge classic! This track is from ’97 a few years before I started playing UK Garage myself. Tuff Jam (Matt “Jam” Lamont and Karl “Tuff Enuff” Brown) were two of the most important people in the first 10 years of history in UKG. I have a promo version of …

Forgotten Treasure: DND “Diamond Rings”

Hands down one of my favorite 2step tracks of all time. DND is a little more known for his jacking 4×4 Garage productions but this jam is definitely on every hard core 2step Garage head’s list.

Future Classic: Maddslinky “Make a change” LP

Most definitely one of the essential records of 2010 for me. Zed Bias makes a furious comeback under his Maddslinky moniker, not that he’d been away but it had been a while since he’d released under his aka more geared towards broken beat and future soul. For those who are …

Forgotten Treasure: Masterstepz “Melody” (1998)

Oh man, this one right here takes me back. The track is from 1998 but I probably discovered it in 2000. I remember there was this magazine (for you young kids, magazines are like the internet made out of paper) with a mix CD included and on that mix is …

UK and Dubstep heads need to brush up on their history…. This is one of the earliest and most important tracks of the 2 step movement. There is a good interest in old-school UK Garage right now, but before giving it yet another new name (“Future Garage”), kids need to …
