blast from the past: UK garage - the album pt. 1

I'm really not of the opinion that any blogger should take themselves that seriously. The Ministrry of Sound UK Garage album was my soundtrack to being fourteen until my sister borrowed it and lost it. Recently, my cravings for early noughties UK Garage became too strong for me to resist and I leapt at the chance to revisit my youth on Amazon Marketplace. Opening the package and seeing that gold wrapper was practically a madeleine moment. Listening to it makes me feel sick and giddy, kinda how the year 2k was.

So before summer fucks off for another year, I'm going to share some of the choicest cuts from Disc One - Light Mix of UK Garage - The Album. This is for everybody who never got to go to Ayia Napa.

First up is the Club Asylum edit of Kristine Blond's Love Shy. I thought against posting a photo but then I just had to because it is quite possibly the worst promo shot I have ever seen. I think it's actually quite a recent shot, comeback is perhaps on the cards. Sound of 2010 perhaps?

But once you've stopped laughing anyway, listen to the track.
Pop masterpiece if ever I heard one.
I don't want to find the original, it's all about the garage touches. That beat.
The staccato vocal loops.
The sustained strings.
The lead vocal is pretty much aural glucose.

///buy UK Garage - The Album from Amazon Marketplace. I think there's a warehouse full of the CD's that needs liberating!

Stay tuned for the next installment. I won't be picking the Craig David, Victoria Beckham, DJ Luck & MC Neat tracks no matter how much you jokers beg.

That is a certified banger. I can only imagine the treasures we've got coming up.

Is it me or have they had to photoshop out her granny pants? Also have they, in photoshoping her legs and made it look like she's got hair at the back of her knees?

Also love the fact that you've tagged this article with 'ministry of sound'.

Neat & Luck have got my vote.
