Sheffield's Toddla T is the latest artist to get behind the decks for the Fabriclive mix series.
The cheeky young producer has had a rapid rise to prominence, with his Ghettoblaster mixtape leading to a deal with Sony subsidiary 1965 Records, plenty of major label remixes and his first album proper, Skanky Skanky. Toddla (real name Tom Bell) doesn't have one definitive production style, crossing from dancehall to drum & bass to UK garage with ease, and collaborating with the likes of Serocee Hot Chip's Joe Goddard and Roots Manuva to name but a few.
Serocee also MCs regularly for Bell during his live sets, and will return to the mic for the Fabriclive mix, which bounds through bass-heavy bangers at a frightening pace. "I really wanted to represent an average DJ set in fabric from Toddla T & Serocee," explains Bell. "Sheffield sonic stylee – as if a sweaty Sheffield basement was deported to Farringdon for the night! I’ve got exclusives and unreleased stuff from Roots Manuva, Skream, Drums Of Death, Untold, Shake Alleti, Toddla T (obviously), Martelo, Oris Jay, Oneman & Mr Versatile, as well as a few cheeky blends that have never been done before! So hopefully a lot of stuff will be brand new to people’s ears. This is fierce club kinda fodder!"
