Two major UK Garage talents collide on the latest release from DJ EZ’s Nuvolve label

Rising UK Garage star PJ Statham teams up with up-and-coming Norfolk producer Leggy on the fresh new single ‘Soundboy’, out now on DJ EZ’s Nuvolve label.

Framed around a lean, uptempo groove with wobbly bass and fluttering synths, ‘Soundboy’ sees PJ Statham and Leggy in their element, throwing in crisp vocal samples and snare build ups to complete the mix. Together they craft a pure old skool garage, executed to perfection by two emerging stars. 

Based in York, PJ Statham is leading the revival of the UKG scene with his own take on bumpy 4×4, 2-step and speed garage. His productions are characterised by his uniquely bouncy chord stabs and dynamic drum patterns that have become instantly recognisable to garage DJs and crowds alike.

Originally introduced to music production at the age of 12, the now 20-year-old has since taken his releases to a whole other level, gaining over 100k streams on his Fake ID remix, with many more tracks well on their way. This has seen his music played by huge names in the scene such as Conducta, Higgo, Notion, DJ EZ, Highrise and more, helping him to secure releases on several notable labels including Profound Sound, Silly Ugly, Pirate Cutz, Duckland, FourbyFour and Forthcoming releases on EC2A and Reptile Mobz. 

PJ’s list of accolades speaks for itself, having supported Sammy Virji and Conducta at Mint Warehouse, consequently being asked by Conducta personally to record a guest mix for his label Kiwi Rekords, whilst also winning a mix competition conducted by Badger for Frontline Events to support the headliner in Bristol. PJ Statham has further played guest mixes on radios including Netil, RinseFM, Reprezent and Mode Radio. He has also overseen the rising popularity of his own record label Shellout Sessions, providing a promotional platform for young UKG producers like himself, whilst putting York on the map for underground nightlife through their events.

Leggy, his collaborator on ‘Soundboy’, is an up-and-coming UK Garage producer and DJ from Norfolk with his own buzz, making waves with his exploration of the more bass-driven side of the scene within his music.

This is both artists’ first release on DJ EZ’s Nuvolve label. Flying the flag for the constant evolution of the Garage genre, Nuvolve shines a light on future sounds and emerging artists whilst never forgetting its roots. A roster where legends like Todd Edwards and Sweet Female Attitude rub shoulders with white-hot risers like MPH and WZA, pays testament to the label’s unique position of showcasing the brightest and best artists of the future alongside those of the past.

Soundboy’ is another certified banger from Nuvolve, unearthing two of the brightest young talents in the UK Garage scene in PJ Statham and Leggy.
