Garage house music on the radio

Garage House is a sub-genre of House music that originated in New York City in the early 1980s. It is characterized by its soulful and gospel-infused sound, with a heavy emphasis on the use of drum machines and synthesizers. The genre gets its name from the underground clubs and parties where it was first played, often in garages and basements.

Some of the most popular artists in the Garage House genre include Kerri Chandler, Frankie Knuckles, Masters At Work, and Todd Terry. Kerri Chandler is considered one of the pioneers of the genre, with a career spanning over three decades. Frankie Knuckles, known as the "Godfather of House Music," was instrumental in bringing the genre to mainstream audiences in the 1990s. Masters At Work, made up of "Little" Louie Vega and Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez, have been producing and remixing hit tracks since the early 1990s. Todd Terry, another pioneer of the genre, is known for his unique use of samples and loops in his productions.

There are a number of radio stations that specialize in Garage House music. Some of the most popular include House Heads Radio, which plays a variety of House music sub-genres, including Garage House, 24/7. Garage FM, based in Russia, plays Garage House and other forms of House music, with a focus on tracks from the 1990s and 2000s. The UK-based station, House FM, also features Garage House in its programming, alongside other House music sub-genres.

In recent years, Garage House has seen a resurgence in popularity, with new artists and producers bringing their own unique take on the genre. Despite its underground roots, the soulful and uplifting sound of Garage House continues to resonate with audiences around the world.
