Oneman's top five UKG tracks

Dea Project – ‘Love Me’ (1997)

‘A 2-step remix of the well-known and much-loved track by [US singer] Fonda Rae. A totally underrated south London classic.’

Groove Chronicles – ‘Stone Cold’ (1998)

‘A real “Room Two” classic from producers Noodles and El-B under their combined Groove Chronicles guise, dropping a saxophone lick over suspended chords and a rolling 2-step beat.’


Sweet Female Attitude – ‘Flowers’ (2000)

‘Simply the best female vocal garage tune ever made, in my opinion. A strong statement, I know!’

Ghost – ‘Dance Hall’ (2001)

‘The is from the “Dance Hall” EP by south Londoner El-B under his Ghost alias. The EP is as dark as it gets for that era.’


So Solid Crew – ‘They Don’t Know’ (2001)

‘A pre-grime microphone garage heater that reminds me of my school days and makes me proud to be a garage-head.’
