Week VIII - Toddla T - 'Sky Surfing' (Ross Orton Remix)
This week's Ninja Tune XX giveaway comes from a recent signing to Ninja Tune, who just happens to be one of the most exciting creative forces currently working in UK music. Toddla T has been producing since he was in his early teens, wiring his love of dancehall and dub into thrillingly contemporary, electronic dance music. As well as releasing a debut album on 1965 Records, he produced two standout tracks on Roots Manuva'a Slime and Reason album, and has recorded a track with Ms Dynamite for the Ninja Tune XX compilation. His new single 'Sky Surfing' was recorded with Wayne Marshall in Jamaica, and is a classic example of what makes Toddla T great; his ability to make cutting edge club music instilled with an all-embracing exuberance. The single is out on iTunes now, with remixes to follow later this summer from Benga, Douster and DJ Q. To celebrate Toddla's signing and the Ninja Tune XX anniversary, we're giving away a remix of 'Sky Surfing' by Steel City sonic maestro Ross Orton; former Fat Trucker and producer extraordinaire.
