Funk and Filth Hall of Fame - Filth #17 - Toddla T
Number 43 on the 2011 NME Cool List? Ha, that's been blown out of the water now! Now that Toddla T has been named inside the top 20 on the Funk and Filth Hall of Fame 2011! ;) NME who?
How do you classify Toddla T and his style? Not easy. Electro? House? Dancehall? Grime? Lets not get bogged down in classifying his stuff, whatever it is, it's good, and often filthy dirty! His real name is Thomas Mackenzie Bell, from Sheffield, and 2011 has seen him fly into the limelight, collaborating with names such as Roots Manuva, Herve and Skream, and ending the year with the announcement that he'll have a regular slot on Radio 1. Fair play mate. Check out a couple of his videos below, including retro-electro-filth [our own made-up genre ;) ] 'Sound Tape Killin' from a couple of years ago, and head over to toddlat.com to grab a couple of his mixes. The mini-mix that he did for his girlfriend and DJ Annie Mac is well worth a listen!
