Since 2019, the garage movement in the UK has been moving forward with a serious level of intensity, with an underground circuit of labels and events slowly but surely reestablishing a circle of artists that have now gone on to gain serious momentum across the full breadth of the UK scene. The most exciting thing about this established circle of labels is that nearly every week, we are blessed with a plethora of colourful new releases, which we will always enjoy here at The Threethousand Network.
Today we are looking at a top quality double drop from one of the scenes most popular imprints, which since it’s creation has maintained a seriously high rate of both consistency and quality within it’s release catalogue. We are of course talking about Nuvolve, a general music platform and record label established by the legendary DJ EZ to showcase the latest garage flavour both from the perspective of releasing music and through an extremely popular regular radio broadcast. It looks as though the label side of the platform has been super busy behind the scenes as they have this weekend release two very exciting singles, which we are going to take a look at today.
First up, Soulecta makes a powerful return, following a fantastic year of releases which has included a thumping collaborative album and a tonne of single drops that have catapulted him to the forefront of the scene. This new single entitled ‘Stargazer’ is a proper throwback to his nostalgic garage roots, showcasing a dazzling display of shuffling drum lines and a groovy chord slides, all bound together with a hip-shaking bassline which combines old school flavour with up to date production cleanliness with a dash of finesse.
Alongside this, they have also released a spicy new collaborative drop from the sounds of Laura Alice & Phonetix, with this creation focussing heavily on clicky percussive grooves and a shining array of tidy vocal samples for good measure. There is something really satisfying about the way this one has been put together, again utilizing an unique display of rhythmic flavour with a box of colourful pad textures to pull together another dazzling single for the Nuvolve catalogue.
