The final part of this series in garage explores the evolution of UK Bass: Future garage & Post-Dubstep.
Bored with the mid-range culture of the growing Dubstep scene, producers like Whistla recreated the early Dubstep scene with influences from old-school Jungle and Deep House. Call it Future Garage. Imagine Zed Bias opening for Armin van Buuren. Also known as FG, this scene is influential at giving comebacks to 90's Garage producers like El-B and MJ Cole and is one of the most exciting scenes in today's dance music
Post-Dubstep is actually Future Garage with an indie audience and a following in festivals like SXSW in Austin. Producers like Mount Kimbie and Jamie XX are pioneers of this scene, using indie rock influences into 2-step tunes which is basically the ideal concept of Post-Dubstep. It's pretentious, but it's still a scene that has a following amongst people who listen to Wiley and Hot Chip.
