8th Note

Loads of DL's on 8th Note's soundcloud that I've re-posted here. Be sure check out all his other stuff and support him by buying any tunes you like!

These free tracks are mostly on a 4x4 tip, but as you'll see his productions span across Garage and Dubstep. There's also a free dubstep remix of Dexplicits legendary bassline banger "Bullacake" on the soundcloud so now you'll have to check it out to get that as well!

Future Garage

Found this CD in a charity shop many years ago. It originally came on the cover of Sleaze Nation magazine back in april 2003 and was the 1st use of the term "Future Garage."

“I guess it made sense to be called 'future garage' at the time, as it was a progression from the sound being played before that stage. 'Dubstep' didn't encapsulate the genre yet because there were different styles being played. You had the breaky garage which was the kind of stuff Zinc was making, and 2-step with the hard basslines which was the stuff myself, El-B, Zed Bias and Oris came with. When the half step sound really started to come through later, then the word 'dubstep' was used and the sound came into itself. But in 2003 it was still undefined.”- J Da Flex

Vinyl and Voicemails

Came across this a few weeks ago and it really made my day!

Robbie T and Phonetix have put out an entire album that is available for donations, (or free but u shud donate sumin u bunch of cheeky freeloaders!) It's packed full of awesome material with a nice range of styles that are all still very dancefloor orientated.

One of my top tracks on here is Phonetix 2 step mix of Mr Faizer "back in the day" which is one of my favourite MC based garage tracks at the moment. I always enjoy lyrics about struggling to come up in music, as I feel like its something alot of us can relate to. And the track is pure bouncy vibes!

My other 2 favourites are Robbie T's beautifully chopped up 4x4 remixes of "Mrs Jones" and Bill Withers "Lovely Day" which he's brilliantly re titled "Tetley Riddim."

Have a quick listen to the albums promo mini mix below if your not convinced, but this album is easily worth donating a fiver for the 3 tracks mentioned alone!
