If it ain’t garage it don’t make sense for Royal-T and, as his ‘Rinse Presents…’ lead single Inside the Ride showed earlier this year, he’s no stranger to the big room – or at least intimations of big room whilst riding around in a mate’s hatchback. In his second ode to the first dance music he loved growing up in Southampton, he keeps it true to the essence with a mix bookended by two supreme MJ Cole tracks with plenty of old favourites and personal remixes in between.
As Butterz and Hardrive gear up for another standout event at Cable this weekend, full details of which can be found here, there’s a lot more coming from the camps. The video for Royal T’s Music Please with Merky Ace has just been released and a blowout radio show featuring – hold breath – Royal-T, D Double E, Rude Kid, Faze Miyake, Kahn & Neek, D.O.K, Spyro and Terror Danjah on Rinse is available to download now too. Stream Royal-T’s ‘I <3 Garage’ mix below.
