One of the UK’s brightest emerging talent’s Toddla T has returned with a brand new single ‘Take It Back’. It is the first release from his forthcoming album Watch Me Dance and features Shola Ama and J2K.
‘Take it Back’ takes a little getting used to, it bears little resemblance to the thumping electronic dancehall strut of his 2009 debut Skanky Skanky. It is a big step away from this renowned big bass beat sound in favour of more soulful keyboard driven summery style.
T has been busy working on his second album in Sheffield, London and Jamaica, slotting in sessions between his hectic DJ schedule and Radio 1 DJ slots. Watch Me Dance is expected in August and will feature a whole host of collaborations including Roots Manuva, Skream, Ms Dynamite, Ross Orton, Wayne Marshall, Donaeo, Roisin Murphy and Shola Ama.
The highly infectious ‘Take it Back’ is out now on Ninja Tune.
