The Artful Dodger
The Artful Dodger
During the late '90s and early 2000s, the Artful Dodger represented the rising status of garage within the U.K. and its slow invasion across the world. A Southampton-based duo comprised of Mark Hill and Pete Devereux, Artful Dodger took a slightly different approach to garage than many of their peers. Along with Hill's R&B and jazz influences and Devereux's interest in hip-hop and house, the duo also took a more traditional approach to the genre. Unlike many of their fellow garage producers, Artful Dodger chose not to use vocals or time-stretching and prefers to re-record vocals when doing remixes. This approach won them respect within the garage community and garnered a substantial amount of hype for "Re-Rewind (The Crowd Say Bo Selecta)," a popular single in the U.K. that featured Craig David on vocals.
