KEY TRACK: Only U
LABEL: 2TE Records
MANAGEMENT: Show Them Agency
WHO: Bristol-born beatmaker, real name Collins Nemi.
WHAT: UK Garage at its purest and most banging, super-charged for the 21st century.
WHERE: Conducta now resides in the capital, having swapped the West Country for West London.
UK GARAGE, SERIOUSLY?
Oh yes. Conducta is the real thing – his 2016 radio breakthrough Still You even featured vocals from Lifford, whose previous work includes The Artful Dodger’s Please Don’t Turn Me On.
SO IT’S UKG, BUT MODERN?
Pretty much. Conducta’s recent single Only U offers a crystalline taste of his sound, while his remixes of tracks by
acts including J Hus and Jorja Smith mean he’s riding the zeitgeist. Patronage from DJ EZ is cool, too.
2018 HERE WE COME…
Exactly. Conducta has a headline slot at Fabric on March 16 and will play with garage godfather Craig David in Ibiza this summer. Look out for more music coming soon via Warner Bros imprint 2TE.
