In 2017, Southampton’s FooR collective breathed new life into the legendary ‘Pure Garage’ compilation, laying the foundation for Garage Shared. Our mission is simple: to provide a platform for UK Garage producers of all backgrounds and sizes to showcase their music and flourish. A year later, we welcomed Southampton’s DJ Bitr8 into our fold, leading to the birth of our sister label, GS Dubs.
