“14 tracks re-wiring UK Garage”

With dubstep increasingly split between bombastic rave/wobble workouts and far more feminine (and, for our money, interesting) variants, the line is getting harder to define between one sub-classification and another. Further up the chain, UK Garage itself incorporates a number of different bass cultures, flowing in and out of Jungle, hip hop and R&B and generating mongrel sounds from Grime to Dubstep, Funky and beyond. All of this is to say that the bass scene always has and continues to evolve at a rate that's producing new sounds and splinters faster than anyone can even name them, despite the perceived malaise. So, forgive us if the title doesn't quite nail the content, but this week's selection, a follow-up of sorts to our 2-step playlist from earlier on in the year, takes in UKG machinations reconfigured and rebuilt by producers emerging out of different urban disciplines, playing to a crowd too caught up in these new hybrid sounds to work out exactly what to call them...

Take part! Leave a comment!

What do you think of this selection?
Any suggestions?
All comments are warmly welcomed.

love those reissues, 1999 is the beez, bigtime.

“rave/wobble”

yeah, so much of that masculine stuff you talk about is not only terribly produced but also just linked to the lowest common denominator. loud, bad, nauseating rave wobble - hate it. This on the other hand..... slinky shuffling movements, biggups.

“yes, love it”

and agree with the above, totally sick of the whole caspa/rusko end of things, the whole boys club bollocks is just tiresome.

“Horsepower”

big tune.

On 15 Jul 14:08 MatthewL said:

“Down with half-step wobble”

Just the kind of stripped back shuffly track's to keep you're interest.... down with rusko/caspa/thugstep/sh*t

...can't take all these 14 track selections! Some great tunes here once again.

“Glad I already own these...”

Recently this 14 Tracks business has been rinsing me out!

“14 tracks does it again!”

What an excellent selection. I was even compelled to do a review on Headphone Commute for this installment! http://bit.ly/4mkpw

“sick”

Shed's done an amazing job right there... serious cross genre pollination all the way>>

“ooooh god”

blimey, not again! More over opinonated gouches talking down about wobbley tunes. To be honest i've never been a fan of them, but im even less of a fan of people who think they are above stuff like caspa/rusko. Not all produceres are aiming for the same thing. Some are just having some fun. And Boomkat can you please stop trying brainwash clueless middle class kids. Really like this selection thoughhhh........ermm
