Pure Garage is a successful series of UK garage compilation albums. Nearly all of them are mixed by DJ EZ.

In January 2000, Warner Music chose Kiss 100's DJ EZ to mix Pure Garage, a new garage compilation CD. Pure Garage went on to receive platinum record sales and peaked at number 2 in the UK national compilation chart.[1] The Pure Garage series is the most acknowledged and best-selling UK garage compilation series to date. The Pure Garage series has sold over 2 million records.[2] Pure Garage Rewind Back To The Old Skool was released on 3 December 2007; after just two weeks on sale it had already earned itself Gold disc status with over 100,000 copies sold.[3] The latest Pure Garage compilation, The Very Best Of Pure Garage, was released on 1 December 2008 and is the first Pure Garage CD that was not mixed by DJ EZ, instead mixed by Matt "Jam" Lamont. In March 2011, a new compilation was released, named Pure Garage Anthems, mixed by Jason Kaye of Top Buzz.
