    Default Will a House crowd dig Garage ? :s

    So in a few months I'll probably be integrated into a house concept.
    -Quite popular already
    -3 times a month in 3 different venues
    -Crowd: 25-40 year old Belgians
    -House but mainly Deep House & Retro House, no cheesy SHM progressive


    I'm getting into house, Tech House/Deep House like 50/50.

    Slightly leaning more towards the underground of the genres with lesser known tracks but they are "easy listening" I suppose.

    But by getting into bass music in general over the last year or so I also got into garage lately. And to general party goer Garage might just sound as faster deep house with more variation in the drum patterns.
    Do you think they 'll like it ?

    Basicly I come from the underground dubstep and dnb and trying to get these parties to play for a larger crowd. I already sent the guy that came up with the concept a tech house mix and he really liked it. Also came to my house to see me mix in real life etc.

    for me, and I am unsure if its the same the world over, but here in the uk I think the last few years has seen an increase in the variety of music people listen to. I know that years ago, a lot of the big club nights centred on one style of music in one room. Now todays audience's (and djs) tastes have grown, and started to take in influence's from all over the place, music is more healthy as a result imo. I think some of it is down to "bass music", as that covered many genre's all with a similar reoccuring theme, bass. Listening to Annie Mac on Radio 1 for the last few years is an example of this. She had a specialist dance music show that previously had centred around a dj's known genre style, and she and started playing the music she just listened to and went out dancing to, so you had everything all in one show. Tease them, introduce one or two tracks gradually and see what the response is.

    I am more and more incorporating the sounds of deep house, tech house, techno and garage into sets.
    It all depends on record selection, if you do it properly you will have sets that the Maya Jane Coles following digests like morning porridge.

    A little here and there is always good to spice it up, track selection is always key,

    loads of Garage-influenced house about at the moment, bass heavy stuff. Dusky etc. If you're looking to go into higher BPM 2 Step you could just see how they react to the housier stuff and go from there?

    I'm actually spinning the same at the moment and it seems to be working well. Lot's of big name DJ's are doing the same thing as well.

    In a word, YES.

    Check videos for Joy Orbison @ Eastern Electrics festival (theres only been one so far). He played garage tunes b2b, at an all house event (6 tents and a main stage) and the place went............... WILD.

    So long as youre dropping the right kind of garage, yes. So long as its sounds housey, the kids wont even know its 12 years old. I wouldnt play 2step style stuff, personally, but thats up to you. Keep it 4x4. No UK Garage MAKE SOME NOIIIIIIIIIIISE *AIR HORNNNNNN!!*.

    Could you give some examples of 4x4-based garage? I always thought 2-step was a defining point of garage (but that's most likely to blame on my lacking knowledge - and as I'm not a fan of the 2-step-based genres I never took the time to further look into garage).

    you're thinking UK Garage aka 'Garridge'

    My understanding is garage was pretty much the new york equivalent of house developing at the same time as chicago house with some differences. while ishkurs guide is kind of annoying for some things it may be useful and has some examples of garage tracks.
