UKG.Vibesey... the new-wave collective of DJ's and supporters of all things UK Garage, continues to amass listeners, fans and followers from across the underground garage and garage house community. By no means late to the cause, the collective's combination of 200+ years in the game see's them recognised as OG purveyors of a sound we all love.
Multiple uploads, sometimes upwards of three per day is no easy feat, catering for fans of everything from the early 90's sound to the so-called "graveyard" years and funky, new steppers. Is there method to the madness? Who know's. Either way, it's a testament to them; one of your go-to's for sure, even if they like keep you guessing!
Keeping up with current times UKGV supplement their vinyl uploads with two monthly mix series: "Vibesey Volume" (currently 4 down) showcases each of the crew members, whilst "Vibesey presents" is geared towards sharing a variety of DJs' & producers' sounds and collections. DJ Perception, Club of Jacks and Marc Cotterell kicking off the first three.
Having featured Vibesey in our launch feature on the re-emergence of UKG back in February, Earful of Wax were privileged enough to be asked to put together the fourth Vibesey presents mix. What better way to kick off our mixcloud than with an hour long tribute to the sound that inspired the launch! Listen out for a mixture of old and knew, including classics from Horsepower, Pangaea and MDubs and new bits from Harry Wills, Prescribe the Vibe and Calibre!
