The House & Garage Orchestra’s debut album, The House & Garage Orchestra Present Garage Classics, is out now via NewState Music. To coincide with the release, the group have shared a new video of Artful Dodger’s ‘Movin’ Too Fast’ featuring Kayla Amor. The album features 18 of the biggest UKG hits of the late ‘90s and early ‘00s, all given a new live orchestrated reworking by The House & Garage Orchestra. It features a stellar line-up of guests including the vocalists who featured on the original songs alongside bright new UKG talent.
Massive garage hits re-interpreted on the album include the likes of ‘Movin’ Too Fast’ (Artful Dodger), ‘Flowers’ (Sweet Female Attitude), ‘Sorry’ (Monsterboy), ‘My Love’ (Kele Le Roc), ‘Sincere’ (MJ Cole), ‘Little Bit Of Luck’ (DJ Luck & MC Neat), ‘Romeo’ (Basement Jaxx), ‘Closer Than Close’ (Rosie Gaines), ‘Something In Your Eyes’ (Ed Case / Shelley Nelson), ‘Imagine’ (Shola Ama), ‘Straight from the Heart’ (Doolally), ‘Gypsy Woman’ (Crystal Waters) and ‘Hideaway’ (De’Lacy). The album also features the brand new track ‘Let Me Show You How’ featuring Shy Cookie and Kayla Amor, as well as two huge UKG remix-covers with MC Neat and Oggie of Stevie Wonder’s ‘Masterblaster’ and ‘Poison’ from Bell Biv DeVoe.
Earlier this month The House & Garage Orchestra completed an extensive UK tour, which saw the ensemble ignite venues and dance floors around the country with their orchestral interpretations, including a sold out show at London’s KOKO. Due to high demand The House & Garage Orchestra have announced they will headline Shepherds Bush Empire on June 1. Tickets are on-sale now via Eventbrite.
