126 minsRecorded 9 Nov 2017 at Trafalgar Warehouse in Sheffield, UK
James North

The UK dancehall don steps up with his very own brand of heavy riddims live in Sheffield. Featuring Coco and C Cane.

Cut yer boy Toddla T open and you’ll be vaporized by the pure Sheffield electronics crackling inside him. The Steel City ‘Bleep’ bubbles right through the blood, brains and musical meat of this dirty rascal’s DJ stints, re-rubs and original night-time material. Weaned on the teat of bashment from a young age Mr T rolled through his early years on his hands and knees with ears glued to the speakers of his folks’ hi-fi. Making beats, bass, blunts and girls filled his adolescence until he was crowned as in-house studio boff at Sheffield’s Kenwood Studios at the grand old age of 19. In the home of Dizzee Rascal’s Boy In Da Corner he set to salting aural shit up. Working on material for DJ Cash Money, Roots Manuva and Steve Edwards let him polish his craft until the studio shut, and he dived headfirst into distilling his own bass-heavy wonk until it was ripe for dissemination. Via ingesting kegs of dancehall, digi ragga, garage, Detroit techno, and hip-hop both behind the decks and Toddla T is set to blaze his solo crop of wobbly electronics worldwide.
