Thread: Speed Garage

  1. #1

    Default Speed Garage

    Listening to this in the car has reignited my interest in this slim piece of time (97-8?). Speed garage sounds very evocative now and definitely a London thing. I think it's aged pretty well.

    What is striking though is that a lot of the speed garage guys had a very short productive period - locked in the pre-2-step period and not really venturing any further. Scott Garcia, 187 Lockdown, Double 99, Tuff Jam, KMA...careers all basically fizzled out by 1999.

    How fertile is Speed Garage? What are the best tracks, or the lost gems?

    Proto grime bass. Also very mournful like a lot of grime. Maybe the saddest piece of music I've ever heard.

    I don't really know what speed garage is but apparently this playlist is

    4X4 beat + heavy/dubby bassline?

    US Garage's rhtymic template + elements from jungle (bass, ragga samples, gunshots, vocal stretch's etc.)


    It's faster than US garage as well.

    I think bass is a big factor, there's line between 4 x 4 garage and speed garage, which I would generally associate with big reesey basslines, not sure if that distinction is generally accepted though?
