Make no mistake about it, what was once an underground genre built on the UK rave scene morphing with the US garage/soulful house sound, UK Garage still has the influence over British music today that it has enjoyed for the last 10 years. From its early forms in 1994 and its impact on seminal UK artists like Dizzee Rascal, Wiley, and The Streets it has achieved success in both the mainstream and the underground. Despite its relatively short explosion as a scene that dominated clubs, it has gone to create or influence: 2step, Speed Garage, Dubstep, Bassline, Grime, UK Funky and not to mention loads more outside of the Garage spectrum.
It seems only right then that we celebrate UKG and the impact it has had on British club culture, and to do this we’ve invited down one of the originators. Zed Bias is an electronic music pioneer who has traversed genres throughout his career with ease but it’s UK Garage where he made his mark with countless classics including the genre-defining “Neighbourhood”. Expect Zed to deliver a fierce, bass-laden mix of UK Garage anthems and rarities as he takes us on a journey through the genre.
Also joining him on the night are some of Brighton’s finest local garage selectors making this a night of the finest 2step, 4×4 and speed garage. This one will go off!
