Neverevereverdid

April 29, 2008

Shaznay Lewis (ex-All Saints) guests on the newest Wide Boys Track. I’m incredibly disappointed. I was expecting something like this:

 and instead, she cranks out some bog-standard garage. It’s as if garage hasn’t moved on since the late-90’s, early 2000’s- in fact, since All Saints last had a song in the Top Ten. Here’s the question for today, so: Is garage even around anymore? Has it been eclipsed by grime? Or is there something that I’m missing out on?

Below is Daddy O (Wide Boys feat Shaznay Lewis). It’s commercially released on the 5th of May (I thiiiiink). Discuss.

    Its been hibernating in the North of England for the past ten years, changed its name to Bassline House and has gotten all popular again. Hasn’t changed an awful lot (what has?), and Grime certainly has the edge in terms of ‘newness’, so its really just filling the straight-up-dancefloor-material gap for the many who find the whole edbanger buzz repellant and are a bit bored by dubstep and minimal…

    If you like the Wiley ting check Dizzee Rascal – Flex (DJ Q remix)

    I’m well into Dizzee, have been back since the Fix Up Look Sharp days. Miniamal never really did it for me, and Dubstep, well, I’m not really bendy enough to dance well to it… Nice to know that Garage still exists though- if only so that MC Harvey from So Solid is still in with a job. xx ailbhe

    ooh, forget to mention in case you havent heard it already;

    Skepta – ‘Duppy’ which features Wiley (and where he again doesn’t appear in the *terrible* video) and loads others is definitive nu-garage-meets-grime tune from last year.
