DJ EZ has launched a new label, NUVOLVE.
The UK garage hero, whose career spans well over two decades, made the announcement on Monday via Twitter.
Promising to bring "the exciting future of the sounds that I have championed for over 25 years", details of the imprint's first releases are expected in the coming days.
Conducta has shared his UKG edit of Headie One's 'Ain't No Different', a floor-ready, 2-step take on the track featuring grime legend Stormzy and risen star AJ Tracey.
The track is landing at the same time as Conducta's remix of 'Sneak', which features on the 'Aluna X Kiwi' EP, a meeting of minds between the producer's Kiwi Records and Mad Decent/Because artist, Aluna.
Headie One has also announced the Edna Live Tour, starting in May 2021. Shows are currently set for Bournemouth, Bristol, Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Leeds, Nottingham and London, among other cities.
Conducta has shared a UKG remix of Brixton artist Yiigaa’s new single, ‘Closer’.
The collaboration came together after the recent DJ Mag cover star tweeted that the original version was one his favourite tracks of the year, and asked for the stems so he could put his own spin on it.
Conducta has dropped a new mixtape.
Following the release of 70-minute mix from Conducta's Kiwi Rekords, 'The Kiwi Sound', released in March this year, the label boss has served up another hour-long mix of unreleased UKG entitled 'KIWI DIREKT'.

Spanning five tracks of UKG-inspired club music, with flourishes of electro and dubstep, it’s another gem from the mysterious producer.
Below you can hear ‘Beta Phase’, a percussive roller that bursts with rhythm nods to UK funky and even a little bit of Drexciya. With warped bass and sprinkings of acid, it’s a stone cold killer.
