Rewinding it back to the heydays of UKG, the Kurupt FM crew has compiled a collection of garage classics for the BBC. Alongside original recordings from the misfit ensemble, the playlist resurfaces the best skittish beats of years gone by with tracks from Wookie, Zed Bias and Sia making the cut. Seminal tracks from Shy Fx and UK Apache also work themselves into the list which also features Roll Deep, Dizzee Rascal and The More Fire Crew’s bonafide classic ‘Oi’.
If they aren’t commandeering the waves of west London pirate radio, Kurupt FM can be found spinning their own collection of garage classics at venues across the country. Friday 25th November will see the Kurupt FM bring their Champagne Steam Rooms party to Canal Mills Leeds with further appearances from Wookie, P Money, Sir Spyro and Plastician. Merseyside gets the same treatment the following weekend at Arts Club on Saturday 3rd December. Added support comes from Big Narstie, P Money and a special guest TBA.
