With its traditional, song-oriented deep house sound, garage recalls the early '70s disco underground. The style originated in New York upon the closing of Larry Levan's Paradise Garage in 1987 by artists like Junior Vasquez, Tony Humphries, Masters at Work, and Roger Sanchez. Capitalizing on notions of upward mobility, classy diva vocals loyal to soul and R&B reign over dub-inflected production. Garage was defined in the late '80s the sultry jazz-inflected House of Nu Groove and the dirtier, feverish grooves that characterized mixes from Strictly Rhythm. In England, garage was a trend toward recreating a spiritual experience for former ravers who matured beyond acid house.
