Round One, Press Dat saw Old Skool garage legends Spark & Kie go head to head against Elijah & Skilliam, with garage don Jameison throwing down the classics and Oliver Rant paving the roads for todayâ€™s 2-step scene, East village got treated with two floors of serious bump and grind. Mic to Mic, deck to deck, Press Dat bridges Old Skool UKG flavor with contemporary grime and bassline. Still!
Round Two, we have legends Double 99 stepping up. Consisting of Omar Adimora, Tim Deluxe and Tim Liken, the group pioneered the mid 90â€™s speed garage sound. Renowned tune â€˜RIP Grooveâ€™ is a timeless piece that continues to get reloads- with the power to make your girlfriend and her best friendâ€™s skank in extraordinary ways. Double 99 are set to spearhead 2012 with remixes and releases on their own Ice Cream Records. Garage revivalâ€™s here at its fullest!
Butterz young gun Royal- T makes energetic bassline that's pumped with 90â€™s essence and todayâ€™s grime influences. Tastefully capsulelising the sound of early garage while injecting a heavy dose of urban UK bass, Royal-Tâ€™s production is one of a kind, earning him support from the likes of Rinse FM, Kiss 100, 1 Xtra and a forthcoming US Tour. Weâ€™ve also invited the first voice of UKG MC Creed -known for his trademark stutter speed vocals- to jump on the mic over garageâ€™s latest hype.
