The original rewind: a NY Garage staple and one of Todd Edwards‘ first remixes, “As I Am” was originally released in 1993 and brought back in 1998 to slake the public’s insatiable appetite for UK Garage. There’s just a ton of history wrapped up those winding organ grooves – a track that via Roger Sanchez and the other people involved moored UK Garage to its Garage roots.

One of the most interesting aspects of Todd’s mixes is how frequently they’re pitched up and down, depending on the DJ’s taste. “As I Am” has been pitched all over the goddamned place, with those crushed and compacted drums and clipped hi hats making it one of the true UK Garage workhorses.
