Toddla T Sound at Notting Hill Carnival

Toddla T sound Notting Hill Carnival 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. 

Gappy Ranks x Salute feat K Dot

Gappy_Kdot

Toddla T is at his best when he is making something big, bashy and ‘Dutt-eh’! Salute was added to his soundcloud about a month ago and it seriously bangs. Produced for Gappy Ranks with a guest vocal from Sheffield’s K-Dot (who you may recognise from Walter Ego’s Calm Down), this one is sure to be a banger when it officially drops. Salute to all involved!

Wildlife & Toddla T x Hear Dat (Famous Eno Remix)


Famous Eno recently put up his remix of the Wildlife and Toddla T collaboration Hear Dat, that’s 3 of our fave artists working on one track. The result is great dub influences, the immortal dancehall HEY! and a small Serocee appearance.

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.

World Carnival #2

Hipsters Dont Dance World Carnival #2 Mix

7 months after our first World Carnival mix we are back with the sequel. This mix spans not only our musical influences but represents the sound of our heritage. The music that this generation of diasporas (Trinidad and Nigeria in particular) are making. So we have music from countries as diverse as Ghana, Trinidad, UK, France, Nigeria, Portugal and Germany amongst others. For us combing genres such as Soca, Azonto, House and Tropical Bass is natural and something that we have nurtured through our club night. We wanted to replicate the sounds we know are orignating from carnivals in Port of Spain, Calabar and London. We hope that you enjoy this mix, this is what we believe is our World Carnival.
