This is the closest thing I've got, and it's pretty darn good. Interested?

Awesome, that sounds very cool indeed, but I wasn't clear enough in my post - I mean old school garage ala the late 90s, early 00s UK dance music.

Anyone (Rashed) wanna recommend me a top quality old school garage compilation?


ooh yes, in fact i'll up you three. check out andrew's too, that shit is good.

first off, one of my favourites, especially because of esoteric track selection and execution.

first off, a compilation that is probably in my top 5 compilations of all time. or why New Zealand was indubitably the fucking greatest. Not old school per-se (80's), but hey, good lo-fi garage songwriting can't be passed upon.

V/A - Xpressway Pile=Up

review from my own blog:
Quote:
Chronicles the best of the short lived Xpressway label from NZ. Despite having only 23 releases to its catalog, Xpressway lived to be immensely influential to the local scene and housed the more experimental acts in its roster; and as such that is what you get on this compilation. Ranging from aural assaults to mumbled drones, from gloomy introspective balladry to exercises in improvisation and noise, it features some of New Zealand's best musicians (Peter Jefferies, Dead C, The Terminals, Plagal Grind, Alastair Galbraith and the like) and is fairly essential for anyone reaping the rewards of the NZ music scene and looking to dig a bit deeper.

Yamantaka Eye - Cassette Acid Garage Punk Mix

-http://www.mediafire.com/?ymjgddeznht

^ one of the reasons why yamatsuka/yamantaka eye is one of the greatest minds in music today. His knowledge and talent spans across so many different breadths of music. here he picks up obscure garage tracks from the 60's and uses his jockeying skills to mix them up seamlessly into a 60+ minute mix that feels like an electronic mix; the tracks all flow and ebb into one another. but the music within is strictly garage. there were only 20 copies pressed, all of them hand painted by eYe. it's brilliant, give it a shot.

then there's also

Cazumbi - African Sixties Garage vol 1.

african garage pop/rock from mozambique, congo, angola and south africa. self explanatory funky garage. awesome.

I'm thinking UK garage - wouldn't mind a decent selection of the more popular stuff as well (I'm thinking of people like the Artful Dodger - there's songs I'll remember without knowing the names/artists). Jungle sounds cool too!

i was thinking why wouldn't Nuggets be your first go-to and then I remembered "oh that's right, english rappers are afraid to call it hip-hop"

I've already got myself Nuggets, monga sir, and it's a damn fine compilation.

I can see what you mean about the english hip hop thing, but there's a bit r'n'b influence in there too I think, and a lot of it is just straight up dance music as well. Then again, I'm no expert, which is why I'm interested in getting a compilation.

georgi, i totally forgot about this thread in the wake of mafia.

check out this release, it's fucking good

Sound of the Pirates- Underground UK garage radio.

if you can find a link for it, let me know. if not, i'll upload it for you when i have some time.

Uk pirate radio at the turn of the century must have been so exciting.

I had to download it off What. Several tracks in, and I'm loving it - it's a great mix and pretty much exactly what I'm after. Some of the bass drops are phat as fuck. I'll probably download something from the Pure Garage series to cover the more mainstream stuff.

Four Tet is god. I'm halfway through right now, and this mix started off with some tribal sounding electronic leading into some funky ass disco.

Can we get a sticky of this thread btw?
