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.
Mind of a Dragon dropped from Kiwi Recordings and several other labels in response to multiple allegations of sexual assault
Shocking news today as one of the most prolific UK Garage artists in recent history was accused of sexual assault by multiple victims (Warning, explicit and potentially triggering content: https://twitter.com/afullix/status/1275387725106032640?s=20). Kiwi Rekords and several other labels who have released his works quickly vowed to cease publishing and remove them from their catalogs.
