U.K. Tsotsi Soul: UK Garage Mid Tempo Remixes
« on: April 04, 2013, 01:10:35 PM »
Over the past few weeks, and a little after making the Kwaito mix, I decided to make a Mid Tempo House mix using one of my favorite House genres, UK Garage. Not the UKG with the merk/slew/grime stuff that we know today (which has been dead since 2008), but the old stuff from the 90s that brought Garage from it's soulful US roots to UK dance floor anthems. I was influenced by the old Mid-Tempo House mixes that SA House DJs like Oskido, DJ Christos, Glenn Lewis and plenty of others did when they slowed US House tunes to a "mid tempo" beat, making it suitable for African audiences during the early '90s. This method not only developed Kwaito but also was the birth of South African House music!

Garage/House left the US in the '90s and went over the pond.  In the UK, they sped the beat; in South Africa, they slowed it down. This mix brings the two styles together. Enjoy!:
