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.
We did a cheeky refix of the soca classic Follow The Leader just in time for Notting Hill Carnival. We followed the leader to Manchester for this one, using Piddy Py’s Giggle Riddim to create Giggle Leader. Get ready to Jump and Wave! Stream or download below and remember to give love to the original artist Piddy Py.
We kick off carnival weekend with a gig thrown by the Loose Wires crew. Murlo is on the bill as well, so you know that it’s going to be fun. It’s at Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes which will be definitely interesting. You can find out more info here.
As big fans of Toddla T’s productions and selections, when we heard he was programming a sound system at Notting Hill Carnival this year we knew the line up would not dissapoint! We caught up with Toddla to ask him a few questions about his plans for carnival.
Why did you want to run a sound system at carnival?
I’ve been in love with Notting Hill Carnival since I first came in 2006, I’m always blaggin gigs but when I was given the chance to programme a day by Mad Fingaz of SSP sound it was like being asked to book the pyramid stage at Glasto for me hahaha
How did you come up with your line up?
I wanted to keep it friends and family and not go too bizerk, keep it Toddla T ya know. Everyone on the line up is a good friend, collaborator or someone I’ve battered on radio but I also wanted to represent the wide range of carnival sounds, to have Robbo and Breach on the same line up is pretty special I think but makes perfect sense to my ears at carnival, it has a sonic conection. Neezy The Driver aint particularly known but is one of the best DJs I know .. Him and D Double are gonna be a problem! Plus some super exciting secret guests and I’m gassed to see Atumpan perform one of the biggest carnival tracks ‘The Thing‘ , plus my Toddla T Sound.. Shola Ama, Serocee and DRS…… I’m just gettin loadsa dubs done for the occasion!
What’s your favourite carnival song?
Probably Shy Fx – Original Nutter, it’s always mad, especially when he plays it on his Digital Soundboy stage every year.
Toddla and the full line up will be holding it down at SSP sound system on the corner of Alderson Street and Kensal Road on Monday 26th from 12pm to 7pm.
There’s no doubt that both DJ Zinc and A-Trak know how to make a club banger, and the re-work of their collaboration track Stingray is no exception. The Re-work Like The Dancefloor features dancehall artist Natalie Storm on the vocals. It’s been a minute since we have heard Natalie on a funky bashment track, and we are happy she is back on the scene. The video features the crew rolling around Notting Hill Carnival and boy does it make us nostalgic. We are predicting big things for this one – could it be the next Wile Out?!
