UK Garage is literally a part of my childhood and foundation as a DJ. I couldn’t even tell you how many hours a day I spent mixing as a young fresh faced 11-year-old wannabe DJ in my bedroom. It was literally the sound of a generation and love it or hate it, you had no choice but to dance to it at once stage during the nasty naughties.
As so many people I knew were entering their dirty thirties, what a better way to celebrate than going back to my roots and putting together a UK Garage mix. It’s not like I needed any excuses to do one!
My good friend Obaro aka Ghostpoet was turning 30 and I decided to dedicate a mix to him as the first of many people I knew that year that were coming of age. I had so much fun putting this mix together, it came so naturally to me that I even decided to do it spread over four decks and really indulge in some of my childhood memories.
I haven’t been to checkout Ghostpoet’s shows of late and something I need to do asap, but I was told not too long ago that he had been using this mix as part of his opener and I couldn’t be more proud of the fact. Big ups to all those who downloaded this one and go and check out Ghostpoet’s brand new album out now.
