Review: Think two-step garage is a UK thing? Start thinking bigger: As proved last year with Elastica's inaugural We Play Garage volume, two-step garage is very much global right now. Currently enjoying its 54th renaissance since the late 90s, it seems Italy is a proper hotbed for it. And they're fusing it with the solid sonic steez their homeland is known for; big filters, lavish chords and warm grooves. From Bodwan's jacking Chicago homage "Ivory" to the lean sub/step and detuned keys of Mother Inc & Kiu D's "Drop The Bass" by way of Captcha Bless's minimal wriggler "Loyalty" and Bist's MAW-style chugger "Crumble", this whole collection showcases Italy's penchant for the sexier side of garage - both the London two-step vibe and the original Paradise sounds. Play it.
