What is Future Garage?

5 years ago written by

The recent years have seen a huge explosion in mainstream acceptance of Dubstep which remained relatively underground for a number of years before really being accessible to the general public.  Now you may have heard people speaking of Future Garage, also sometimes referred to as Post-Dubstep creeping into the light that Dubstep has opened up. Future Garage is a current movement of producers from around the globe, taking it back to its UK Garage/Dark Swing/2-Step/Bass driven roots away from the current influx of the over-used Wobble and fusing it with Detroit and Dub-Techno making futuristic and often very off kilter modern rhythmic production styles.

And on with the show, the best way to get introduced if you are new or unfamiliar, is to jump right in.

      Maybe you’ll be able to do it without directly ripping someone else’s description of the genre, too.

        Why would i change it, its a perfect description of the sound, although I probably should have put it in block quotes, I still think its the best description anyone could give.

        • Leland

          We’re not saying change it, but at least say where you got it from…

          You don’t have to change it, you just cite your source and provide a link, so that r/futurgarage, and the author of the “perfect description” get some love.

          actually, DONT change it, it’s great that you didn’t change it and changing it causes shit to happen like the “telephone” effect and the type of music will change into something horrible based on a bad description

  • Alain

    Really, really good stuff!

    neat is heavy

  • timi

    sick list, and description.
    just one thing… is it not kinda ironic that dubstep originated out of deep garage, garage then faded away, and is now coming back. the sound of future garage is exactly the same as early 20002 ‘dubstep’
    so interesting how music goes in cycles

    • kid octy

      its because people who were into dubstep in the early days got into it through garage and now that dubsteps “not music but a competition in massive vst patch design”(cant remember where this quote was from) those people have tried to recreate what they fell in love with hence the off shoot of future garage
