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
