Speed garage (Plus-8 ["DJ magazine", 1996-1997, "Raggage": "...earning the scene the slightly mocked nick-names of 'plus-8' or 'speed garage'."] ) is a type of music, associated with UKG and hard dance scenes. [ [http://www.toucanmusic.co.uk/articles/speedgarage.html History of Speed garage] : "There are many different forms of garage music, most of these were of little interest to UK hard dance fans until the latest mutation came along, speed garage."]

Characteristics

Speed garage has sped-up NY garage 4-to-the-floor rhythms. [ [http://www.toucanmusic.co.uk/articles/speedgarage.html History of Speed garage] : "Speed garage can be broadly defined as a mixture of slightly sped up garage beats..."] Snares are placed as over the 2nd and the 4th kickdrums, so in other places of the drum pattern. [ [http://www.garagemusic.co.uk/2step.html 2Step] : "In the original 1997 speed garage, the snares are fussy and clattering over the stomping 4-to-the-floor kickdrum."]

Speed garage tunes have warp, heavy basslines, influenced by jungle [ [http://www.toucanmusic.co.uk/articles/speedgarage.html History of Speed garage] : "Speed garage can be broadly defined as a mixture of slightly sped up garage beats with a heavy almost junglistic bassline"] and reggae. [(2004) "Popular Music Genres: An Introduction", ISBN 0748617450, 9780748617456, p.216: "Speed garage basslines were drawn from Jamaican reggae..."] Sweeping bass is typical for speed garage. [(2004) "The Dance Music Manual", ISBN 0240519159, 9780240519159, p.157: "The sweeping bass is typical of UK garage and speed garage tracks and consists of a tight yet deep bass that sweeps in pitch and/or frequencies"]

It is typical for speed garage tune to have a breakdown. [ [http://www.toucanmusic.co.uk/articles/speedgarage.html History of Speed garage] : "Speed garage can be broadly defined as a mixture of slightly sped up garage beats [...] , and usually with a break in the middle where the beat is stripped down and then builds up for a long period of time."]

Speed garage tunes sometimes featured timestretched vocals. [ [http://www.toucanmusic.co.uk/articles/speedgarage.html History of Speed garage] : "Speed garage can be broadly defined as a mixture of slightly sped up garage beats [...] , sometimes with timestretched vocals"]

As being heavily influenced by jungle, speed garage is full of jungle and dub sound effects, such as gunshot sounds. [(2004) "Popular Music Genres: An Introduction", ISBN 0748617450, 9780748617456, p.216: "Jungle and ragga-style sound effects, such as the rash of gun shot volleys heard on popular speed garage tracks,..."] [(2004) "Popular Music Genres: An Introduction", ISBN 0748617450, 9780748617456, p.216: "Overall, two-step [..] , less relied on the dub sound effects [...] of speed garage"]
