Toddla T Sound x Flash

Toddla T Sound are gearing up for another release, this time with HDD favourite Serocee on the vocals. The video follows the crew on tour over the last few months with clips from Lovebox, Tramlines, and the excellent Toddla T Sound System at Notting Hill Carnival.  Flash officially drops on October 7th but you can pre-order it from the Ninja Tune store here.

Roses Gabor x Stars

We were first introduced to Roses Gabor on this smasher from Redlight, since then we have also loved her vocals alongside Blaya’s on Buraka Som Sistema’s Up All Night.  Stars is Roses debut single on Toddla T’s label Girls Music and we are loving her smooth vocals over Redlights eclectic production. It’s a modern RnB ballad, a little one drop, and a little chopped and screwed, rolled in to one big debut single. Its available now here and here

Toddla T x Body Dub

One of our favourite tunes from last years Watch Me Dance LP gets the remix treatment from Ross Orton and Pipes. This is taken from the upcoming remix LP (done solely by the Sheffield duo) which is out on August 13. Ross Orton has been someone that we have always liked from the days that he and Toddla did amazing remixes to his collaboration with Checan. To hear his and Pipes touch of what was one of the best LP’s of last year will be exciting.

Face T x Tuff Like Stone

Face-T Tuff Like Stone Album Art

You may know Face T from being one of Poirier‘s frequent collaborators or from his hits like Wha la la Leng, Blazin, Enemies or his recent single Jumbo.He has been a constant presence in our sets so we are pleased to see him release his new album. The 13 track LP produced by Poirier and Scorpio B covers a mix of reggae, dancehall and uptempo electro bass. Our favourite track on the album is Hands Up Deh which reminds us of Bollywood meets french courtisan electro, which trust us is a great thing, topped off which Spanish rhyming from Boogat. The title track featuring Cutty Ranks, shows that Face T can hold his own alongside a legend on this dancehall riddim. You can listen to an album minimix below and as a treat you can download the A Tribe Called Red remix of Jumbo here.
The album is available to buy now on itunes.

Poirer Soca Road EP

Soca Season is upon us and one of our favourite producers, Montreal’s Poirier has just released his Soca Road EP on Mixpak. Poirier has mastered the art of creating the perfect carnival vibe through hits like Go Ballistic and Blazin, and through his live sets (his set at the 2010 RBMA Carnival Party was a HDD favourite) and his Soca Road EP is no exception. The 4 track EP features Cape Town’s EJ von Lyrik and Haiti’s Imposs on vocals and can be purchased on itunes, beatport or juno. Check out the previews below and prepare to wine, wuk, jump and wave!!
