New TODDLA T - "Sky Surfing (Douster Remix)"
I just got at Toddla T about an interview we've been waiting on since before his first feature in Dazed and Confused (i.e. a LONG time). I got an early listen of this beast of a song and wanted to try to get his attention before he was doing like 20,000 magazine interviews because of this... and of course I don't think I emailed him lol. Who knows, maybe it'll still happen, but if it doesn't you'll understand why right after you hear this song... it's so Summer perfect that everyone will want a piece of him...
Here's some press:
Toddla T comes absolutely busting out of the traps for his very first single for Ninja Tune/Girls Music. On a recent trip to Jamaica to collaborate with Major Lazer, Mr T found himself alone in the legendary Tuff Gong Studios in Kingston. Who should wonder in but the one-and-only Wayne Marshall who asked Toddla to play him some rhythms. As soon as he heard the beat which would become “Sky Surfing” he told the Sheffield whizz kid to hit RECORD.
The result is the hyperactive club smasher “Sky Surfing,” which runs through a million styles from dancehall to jump up hip hop to cheesy rave and makes them all sound as fresh, as squelchy and as downright fun as they ever have. Marshall himself sounds utterly revitalised by this genre-crusher, chatting and singing with equal ease and thoroughly enjoying this “JA-UK connect.” A blast of good time energy summed up in its title, “Sky Surfing” is set to go stratospheric.

Expect to see remixes from Benga, Ross Orton + DJ Q when the single comes out 9th August 2010 on Ninja Tune... this is obviously a must have for Summer parties! Let me know what you think in the comment section!
