And thought it was some kind of hip-hop/house thing. But upon an initial skim through, it seems like it's more towards what I would expect UK Garage to be. House-y elements, bumpin' basslines, and little break-y feeling.

Sounds like decent party music anyway, and I'm enjoying it.

If you're curious as to what it sounds like, you can listen to the mix at the Radio 1 site.

UKG is a "hip hop/house thing!" :)

There's just such a wide array of available styles that fit under the UKG umbrella. To put it simply, ukg is a melting pot of the best elements of almost every type of music you can think of. That might be a bit of an ambitious statement, but to those of us that love it, it rings true.

Glad to see somebody else expressing some intrest in a genra that gets far less attention in North America than it deserves.

...that's more of an ecletic mix kind of thing than a UKG mix...none of those tracks could really be defined as UKG although it is an ambitious set...

The Q-Tip acapella over Seiji's "Loose Lips" works really nicely. I'm more interested in this mix now that I've heard a bit. I was ready to write it off after just seeing the tracklist...

I listened to the first 15 minutes or so, and thus would like to revise my initial statement. The tempo is a bit slow to be UKG persay, but I see the tracklisting changes things up a bit further down.

I dunno, wait till the end of the day and you'll get a lot more feedback. Either way it's always good expanding your musical tastes, esp in Toronto's cliqué-y scene.

Very sweet. Very urban.

Thanks for the link...it will not go to waste.

I wonder what people on the Hip Hop forum would think.
