Toddla T


Pretty much entirely departing from his usual bleeps v bashment thrash outs, Toddla is prepping the world for his new album with an unabashed slice of 90s chart RnB nostalgia. Chucking in pianos, mid tempo swing and old school UK diva Shola Ama, Toddla emerges with something that sounds like it could have soundtracked any one of my school discos. Hes got the formula down to near perfection, and the piano line is hyper infectious- if his usual fan base can roll with this, Id say theres a fair chance for a touch of daytime play from the big stations. Personally Im more into the evil Moombahton bounce brewed up on the Dillon Francis mix, and the manic bass line meets 2 step flow offering from DJ Q, but still, good to see a producer thinking outside his genre, and the pirate station video complete with Telepathy flyer on the wall got me dead misty eyed… Ian Mcquaid
