Dreem Team – Essential Mix 1997

Originally recorded on Christmas Day 1997, this mix is the Dreem Team’s first appearance on The Essential Mix.

UK Garage was really in its infancy around this time, but its popularity was exploding and The Dreem Team were at the forefront of its transition into the spotlight. Originally rooted in a 4/4 “house-ier” garage sound, it became more of an R&B-fueled breakbeat in ’97-’98. The Dreem Team was at the head of the pack as they released dozens of mix CDs featuring their DJ talents.

If you want a more concise look at the origins of UK garage I suggest you check out the wiki. It has a pretty comprehensive look at it’s history, including the spin-off genres it birthed.
