DJ EZ issues new cut from Sampladelic & The Phat Controlla - 'Speed It Up'

Last updated: 19th Feb 2021
DJ EZ's newly conceptualised and already significant imprint, NUVOLVE has recently welcomed Argentinian producer Sampladelic and Kiwi Records affiliate The Phat Controlla, issuing the pairs punchy new club banger - 'Speed It Up'.
Established by the UKG giant and his long-term manager Paul Marini towards the back end of 2020, NUVOLVE has already delivered a handful of well-received singles and EP's from some of the most respected names in urban music.
Encompassing DJ EZ's love for all forms of electronic dance - from garage to house, drum n bass and everything in between - the label kicked off its existence by releasing no fewer than six singles from a host of diverse garage legends - amongst them the likes of trend-setting garage pioneer - Todd 'The God' Edwards, Manchester favourites Sweet Female Attitude, Club Asylum, BBC Radio 1 resident Fabian Dubz, and up-and-coming future stars SHOSH and MPH.
The brand new collaborative single, which sees the two electronic producers linking up for the very first time, marks the start of a steady flow of upfront garage and bass music to come from the nascent label. A high-energy 2-stepper, ‘Speed It Up!’ juxtaposes low-slung bass with choppy, high-pitched piano samples, smooth seductive vocals and the shuffled breakbeat rhythms and syncopated hi-hats customary with the popular genre.
It sees NUVOLVE continue their recent run of releasing top-drawer fresh club heat, with the likes of Smokey Bubblin’ B, Smasher and Tuff Culture all dropping records on the fledgling imprint recently.
