Toddla T Sound - Worst Enemy
After a year spent touring with Shola Ama, MC DRS and Serocee as DJ/live collective Toddla T Sound, the Radio 1 DJ has taken the next logical step, moving from stage to studio. One might expect TTS's first single to pack all the punch of Toddla's trademark club-ragga fare; instead, we get a slinky, laid-back R&B number, with Ama's smooth, frank lyrics, on the fickle nature of fame, flowing over sparse kicks and cosmic synths. DRS contributes a typically quick-fire verse, his muted, pitched-down vox well-suited to his humid surroundings. Let's hope this hook-up with Ninja Tune proves to be more than just a one-off.
