Speed Garage: Sound Of The Future

Bethan Cole, Muzik, September 1997

It's harden faster, sharper and more bass-heavy than ever before, it has MCs, rewinds, ragga vocals and time-stretching. Its energy and hedonism is hard to find anywhere else in dance music right now. It's SPEED GARAGE, it's the summer sound of 1997 and it's hijacking handbag house as the new Saturday Night Fever.
