We’re all guardians of good taste here right? Yours truly recently contributed to the reggaecast, and we’ve just enjoyed a good rake over post-punk. Philly soul, dub reggae, shoegaze – there’s no genre we can’t parse for a collective playlist of pure gold. Our best albums of the last sixty years has some truly excellent vintages.
Nothing if not up for a challenge, this track coming up on some Spotify playlist has caused me to think about….UK Garage. Can there be a less immediately attractive genre? It has cheesy chart stuff sold by the yard at Woollies in the early noughties written all over it. One which gave the world Craig David rewinding when the crowd said bo selecta, that ‘I like to move it’ track from Madagascar, and So Solid Crew. So, challenge laid down. Can we come up with a playlist of UK garage that we can get behind?
I’ve found another couple, in the comments, taking me up to a grand total of…er, four. Your greatest UK garage tracks please. Reel 2 Reel not needed on voyage, whether featuring the Mad Stuntman or not. If we can do this, there’s nothing we cannot accomplish.
