Todd Edwards’ back catalogue to hit streaming services for the first time
The garage legend will release the archive via Defected next month
Todd Edwards’ back catalogue is set to hit streaming services for the first time.
New Jersey-born garage legend Todd Edwards is considered one of the early UKG pioneers, championing the sound in the early '90s through his DJ sets and productions.
Now, Edwards is set to share his back catalogue on streaming services for the first time, with some of his biggest tracks — mostly never-before-released or vinyl-only records — set to hit platforms on the 7th May.
Incoming via Defected, the archive of productions will feature over 140 tracks including ‘Dancing For Heaven’, ‘Can’t You Believe’, ‘Never Ever Far’, ‘Winter Behavior’ and ‘The Dream’.
Speaking about the remastered back catalogue, Edwards said: “Finally! It’s been almost a decade since I got back the music catalog that helped define my career. Now it’s ready for re-release, and I am very happy it will all be on Defected Records, the perfect label to share my music with old fans and a new audience.”
The Todd Edwards catalogue will be made available digitally on 7th May 2021 across all streaming services and DSPs.
Over a year ago I announced that a vast majority of my back catalogue would be available again through @DefectedRecords after a lot of work from everyone involved and a global pandemic causing setbacks, I am beyond excited to finally tell you..(1/2) pic.twitter.com/7sCehtN1Hc

For over two decades, Simon Dunmore's Defected has been dedicated to the finest in house music, from its label and numerous associated imprints, to its events and festivals. Still, it hasn’t all been plain sailing — Defected has traversed choppy waters to become the super-brand it is today. For a feature in 2018, DJ Mag spoke to Dunmore about the evolution of Defected.
