With the return of Garage to the streets, clubs and airwaves of the UK in the form of Bassline, comes the resurgence of some of the most well loved tracks and artists from the 90s and early 00s, when Garage was on first wave of domination!
Reading like a who's who of UK Garage, Garage Classics is a sure fire hit with the original Garage aficionados and the new breed of Bassline devotees eager to learn the classics that their inspired today's anthems.
All mixed and compiled by Bassline's current top DJs The Wideboys -who have already enjoyed major commercial success from last year's Maximum Bass, and underground acclaim from 10 years of DJing on the scene.
The ultimate collection of the very finest Garage and New Bassline anthems ever compiled- this is Garage Classics!

Anyway MOS are as usual picking up on the market, a 3CD mix from acclaimed DJs The Wideboys - known to their mates as Jim Sullivan and Eddie Craig; they have been in the game since 1995 and know what they do well.
CD1 is 2-step classics, like Doolally's playful yet childish "Straight From The Heart", with it's play school lyrics and easy going beats; Scott Garcia and the infamous MC Styles doing "it's a London thing", which to me is always going to be a classic: Indo's instant classic "R U Sleeping", with it's organ stabbing the dark atmosphere wildly. My favourite on here is Azzido Da Bass' "Doom's Night", it always send a shiver down my spine...
CD2 is straight up 4 to the floor bassline stuff, like Kristine Blond's sexy "Love Shy"; MAV's "To Be In Love", also very attractive; Double 99's instant hit "RIP Groove", which still burns up dancefloors across the UK. My favourites on here include Todd Edward's rather uplifting "Saved My Life", his choppy beats and melody being very hypnotic and Tuff Jam's Experience, really it's US House, but we'll forgive MOS.
CD3 is the new skool stuff, like H2Os "So What's It Gonna Be", with it's reminiscent style which doesn't seem to be too far from where it all started back in '96. There's also my favourite Benga track "Night", which reminds me of Azido Da Bass' work. This isn't a bad disk and is worth a good listen. Think it's going to grow on me.Read more ›
There's a lot of good stuff on here though garage wise, like Straight From The Heart by Doolally, which is still a good piece of vocal garage, and Moving Too Fast by Artful Dodger, which is still great, even though a bit too commercial. On the nu-skool front you have Benga's excellent Night track, which is rather atmospheric and could be quite scary listening to it on your own down a dark alley. Obviously tracks like Double 99's RIP Groove is still a big favourite for me, and for DJs too.Read more ›
The mixing is competent at best. The beatmatching is ok on the whole but some of the tunes that are mixed together are out of pitch and make for excrutiating mixing (the appalling mix of '138 trek' into the HLC's 'Superglue Riddim' was completely out of pitch and successfully butchered two of my favourite records)!
The MCing included in the intro tracks is cringeworthy at best and pretty much fulfills every unfortunate cliche associated with Garage. Any MC that uses the phrase 'Okey Dokey' frankly deserves to be condemned to the fires of hell.
Thouroughly disappointing and there are far better compilations out there that do the Garage scene far more justice.

I could - like other reviewers (ahem) - naively complain that this release features too much Old Skool Garage for my liking; but being that it's called Garage CLASSICS I can't say... Read morePublished on 20 Jan. 2009 by Corn on the Rob
