With the '90s revival in full swing (so we're told) now seems like a good time to cast our ears back to the sound of UK garage.

This instalment of SampleRadar is devoted to it, with beats, basses and synths all awaiting your attention. 

What you need to know

The samples are divided into five folders: 128, 130, 132, 136 and 142bpm.

All the samples are supplied as WAV files so can be imported directly into your DAW or sampler of choice. Because they're royalty-free, you're welcome to use the samples in your music in any way you like - all we ask is that you don't re-distribute them.

The UK garage samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!

Example sounds

Beat 128bpm

Bass 130bpm
