When Chicago DJs has been experimenting with drum machines, New York DJs in the Paradise Garage club headed by Larry Levan gave a birth to another new style as popular as house on dance floors — garage (named after that club). Musicians from New Jersey promoted the style doing their best in the mid-80s. 



The most notable representatives of this style are Rosie Gaines, Ce Ce Peniston, and the dive of British garage scene — Ultra Nate. During last 20 years garage changed into the wide umbrella style. Garage is being developed mostly in Great Britain, especially in London, where it is the face of British electronic underground.
