    I've been really getting into this new future garage stuff. It's bassy and has all around good vibes, a perfect escape from the filth wars that dubstep has turned into. I never really was exposed to 2-step or other garage, but this future garage stuff is really great, and I was wondering what you all thought of it. Stuff like:





    (no this is not me)

    It sounds so fresh and beautiful, I feel so happy to live in a time when such great music is in development. Future garage and autonomic have quickly become my choice listening material, due to the stagnation of dubstep. It's got everything I could ask for: bass, soul, shuffly-skippy beats, and lots of feel good instrumentation. Tell me what you think.

    Yeah I've been keeping my eye on this stuff since I heard of it a couple of weeks ago, and was going to fling a couple of gos trying to produce it. I like how it takes the good bits of dubstep and mixes it with the good bits of garage, as in 2step beat not that weird messed up retarded child, speed garage

    I've been trying to have a go at making some of it too, just a little 2 minute bit experimenting with the sound that I hope to finish up and post to soundcloud soon. I found FutureGarageForum and some of the producers are giving away their tunes there, so I've been listening to those trying to get the basic idea of how it's structured and what types of sounds are used. I find mixing it to be a joy too because it mixes with some of the deeper ambient dubstep a lot better than most things I've tried.

    Found this on the cloud, from what I can tell this whistla is one of the people who's pushing the sound the most. He might be one of the pioneers, dunno for sure. In any case he seems really involved in the future garage scene.

    TRACKLISTING:

    Submerse - Everything Around Us
    Synkro - Everybody Knows
    Clueless - Secret Love
    Sully - Phonebox
    Whistla - What You Want
    Sines - Love Becomes She
    Submerse - Forgive Me
    Burial - Unite
    Whistla - Steelface
    Kanvas - Next
    Duncan Powell - Care 4 Me [Whistla Remix]
    M2J - Blue Tone
    Littlefoot - Alien Wet Dream
    KingThing - Trapped
    Naphta - Soundclash [Grievous Angel Remix]

    I'm intrigued. Do you have the names to any tracks I might listen too?

    I loved old proper garage, thats my favourite music but this sounds a tad weird and not to my liking but hopefully it evolves back to some of the older sounds (y)

    Not sure, I know he has one or two autonomic bits on Med School and that he has also produced quite a bit of dubstep.

    Thats fucking hillarious. If you ever played the first donkey kong on snes youll understand. Literally just drums on top of a soundtrack...

    On topic, i find it hard to distinguish between dubstep/future garage stuff, all fairly similar but i got a few tunes you might like:









    EDIT:

    And this badboy:

    Scuba is fucking sick.
    There's a touch of future garage on the Hotflush podcast, but most of it is dubstep and deep techno I think. Anywho, time for a shameless self plug.
    I made some future garage :teeth:

    Artists to check are Whistla, Submerse, Littlefoot, Clueless, M2J, Monz, Dawntreader, Erra, Touch, Sines, Demos, Dom, VVV, ReSketch, Synkro, KingThing, Fused Forces, Sully, Sclist, Kanvas, Pangaea, Dokument, Cosmic Revenge, Point B. And labels like L2S Recordings, Night Audio, Bass Machine Music, Furioso, Frisjfo Beats, Smokin Sessions are releasing tunes on that vibe.

    All are smashing that new post-garage sound to bits, listen to it as much as dnb now, so much better than that 'uk funky' bollocks

    Agreed! and I can stress enough how good the ones in bold are!

    I'd also highly recommend Roof Light, Egoless, & Cairo
