Way back in 2003 when the SoulChampion Crew was serving up 2-Step and UKG weekly at Runnin’ Fridays at Boston’s Ekco Lounge we put together 2 collab mix CDs with each of us, G Notorious, Jam-2, Senyo, and Elyte, doing a 20 minute quick mix. The follow up to this this still sought after classic mix begins now with part one, a 20 minute quick mix of recent and current 2-Step/UKG mixed by G Notorious…
While I disagree with the title of this video in that UK Garage didn’t BECOME Dubstep (UKG is still it’s own entity and continues to spawn other genres and subgenres) I would say Dubstep evolved from UK Garage while incorporating many other influences, and this is a pretty good account of how the one came from the other.
