UK Garage

UK Garage is a subgenre of House Music and electronic music featuring a shuffling beat, cut up (or “chopped”) vocal samples which are often clipped, time shifted or pitched. Most popular in the UK from the mid 1990s to the early 2000s and related to 2-step, UK Garage is seen as a precursor to Dubstep.
