There's only a handful of artists who focus specifically on garage these days, with the majority opting for the hybrid approach. While there's nothing wrong with that option, Scott Garcia like the traditional, swinging approach that was pioneered in Britain back in the mid 90s, and its safe to say that he knows his material in and out. "Smoke & Mirrors" is a classic dance joint with that wavy bass that has so much to say about the scene's ode to the golden era of rave, whereas "Sovereign" pays homage to the grime massive in what makes for a banging dub for the heads. Badboy gear.
No one can contest the fact that Birmingham's Tuff Culture is waving the flag way up high for the Midland's bass connection. Back on Four40, as per regular, the producer launches this new EP with "Feels", a hybrid track that's powered by swinging garage drums and gnarly wobble-step bass. "Glitch" is the virus in the system, a hard-ass bass mutant with some mean snares, while "Movie Script" opts for the jump-up flex thanks to a bouncy cascade of vocal samples and snappy two-step drums. Party weapons, right here!
