    Thought you were going to set up a UKG poll, Benny.

    One of the things I loved about this era was the sheer dizzy weirdness and joy of seeing names like Lisa Stansfield popping up in hardcore underground London mixes. Remember that Bette Midler remix all the garage heads loved? Bette Midler!

    MK remix. Now he's turned out to be a real survivor, hasn't he?

    Ah so that was MK? Wow

    Just found this bootleg of that same riddim with a Fonda Rae vocal, even better!

    I think speed garage might be the ultimate music for dancing, for me - it keeps the vibe and the itchy-percussive / texture-y elements of jungle (oh and the monster bass too). But it injects all of that into the slinky grooves and sultry feverishness of house

    And the pace of speed garage is just right

    2step is gorgeous but it's actually a bit slow - you have to be a really good dancer to be adequate to its rhythmic demands

    I'd be happy to organise a garage poll if enough of you want to do it. Just let me know if you can.

    The link between speed garage and bassline is interesting and reminds me a bit of Northern Soul - Northerners keeping faith with the uptempo bits of the original sound, but extenuating and exaggerating it. Although, of course, the NS djs did this with old records, while the bassline crowd created their own new sound (while the Southerners did their own thing with rare groove and garage rap/grime).

    Never really developed a taste for bassline, myself, or grime. I got stuck in the dying days of UKG in the summer of 2001. Talking of which, these two videos offer an interesting comparison:



    Scott Garcia banger, from the early, humble days.



    DJ Pied Piper chart buster from the twilight days, almost like a eulogy for UKG after the London sound had sweeped Britain and was about to be eclipsed by So Solid and then, terminally, grime.

    I love the Pied Piper tune, btw. I find it almost unbearably poignant, now. It feels like the last fun, carefree summer we ever had.

    Everyone talks about the Junglist elements of Speed Garage, correctly, but you can't neglect the huge influence of Todd Edwards. The sweet, chopped-up vocal, synthetic soul element was a major ingredient from the very beginning, and was probably the main thing that fed into the 2-step and 'UKG' chartbusting styles that came out of it.

    Yeah u cant deny the US influence. Ukg wouldnt have existed if not for todd, armand van helden and stuff on strictly rhythm like logic 'blues for you' and harddrive 'deep inside'.
