Long term friend of UKGarage.org, Keith True has produced a short 15min audio documentary telling the story of UK Garage breaking into the Mainstream.
This year UK Garage is back in such a big way, even Craig David has returned to his roots; but for some the uniquely British sound has never gone away. From its humble beginnings from the independent clubs in London, UK Garage changed the sound of clubbing in Britain and bombarded the charts with hit after hit.
A scene that launched acts like Alesha Dixon in Mis-Teeq, Wiley, Dizzy Rascal and Ms Dynamite I spoke to the people who pioneered Garage and taking it into the mainstream and beyond.
