Along with a couple of friends we're starting up a new series of club nights in my patch of South London - calling these nights the Southside Sessions. The launch is a night of Garage, House and 2 Step at the Fox & Firkin in Lewisham. Hopefully that will become a regular jam, already plans afoot for a summer session with Jeremy Sylvester headlining, and we've plans to a get a Jungle & DnB night up and running at a different venue too.
So to celebrate the launch here's a promo mix of bumping and jumping house, classic uk garage, and some other boundary pushing shuffles - aiming to capture some of the range of music you might hear at the night.
Kicking off with a couple of 1993 foundational US garage tunes, moving on to a couple of later 90s bombs before rolling through some of the range of modern garage influenced tunes out there in recent times.
