2-step garage, or simply 2-step, is a genre of electronic music and a subgenre of UK garage. One of the primary characteristics of the 2-step sound – the term being coined to describe “a general rubric for all kinds of jittery, irregular rhythms that don’t conform to garage’s traditional four-on-the-floor pulse” – is that the rhythm lacks the kick drum pattern found in many other styles of electronic music with a regular four-on-the-floor beat.
