Unrivaled Groove Vol. I
Curated during quarantine, Unrivaled Groove Vol. I is a project aimed at further connecting different aspects of the worldwide garage scene; specifically, those in Bristol, UK & Durham, NC. Available in a limited, transparent blue and solid black marbled vinyl pressing, as well as streaming on major DSP's, the thoughtful compilation features 8 tracks from 10 artists — 5 from the U.S. and 5 from the UK — who come together to show that garage is an ever-growing, worldwide force. As a whole, the record is a gorgeous mix of classic and forward-thinking styles, ranging from vocal-heavy, 90s-laden 2-step to NUKG, Breaks/D'n'B, and Bassline. While there is yearning in every one of these tracks — for live music, for community, the club, and even a dash of normalcy — there’s also an incredible amount of hope and excitement to continue the mission started before quarantine: to form new connections and enter into new collaborations, (and just in time for raves to return).
