Toddla T

Sheffield bleep meets dancehall with help from a talented DJ/producer

Toddla T is the beat freak who's been causing a storm of excitement with his next-level smash-ups. Hailing from Sheffield, this young DJ/producer has been stirring shit up with a unique style that takes dancehall as the jump-off point and adds sick warehouse bleeps, electro crunk, and ghetto house elements to conjure the sort of tracks that'll get you jumping like a crack-addled grasshopper. Making mad noise with his free mix comp that can be obtained for nowt from his www.myspace.com/toddlat, the Toddla's also been releasing some highly sought after 7"s, with ragga chatters Mr Versatile, Trigganom and more all versioning his 'Do U Know' rhythm on the pioneering 1965 label. Stuffing a grenade in the genre pigeonholes, his musical taste is wide-ranging to say the least.

"When I was about 16 I started goin' out and I got introduced to a wider range of music put together really well by the likes of DJ Pipes and Chris Duckenfield. Dancehall, garage, techno, electro, house, soul and r&b, all tied together real tight." 'Do U Know' gets a wider release in mid January on 1965 with a Sinden and Count of Monte Cristal remix.
