Hello, I'm Oliver, and I'm a Todd addict. I just got his latest Cd, which I saved up for by not drinking wine or smoking for a week. It's called 'New Trend Sounds - Classics, Remixes and Beyond' - a dismal, unappetising title, and not one his best collections, but it should keep me fixed until January. It has a gorgeous remix of 'Winter Behaviour,' which is nothing like the original. I had quite a lot of personal investment in the original, and this didn't remind me of any good/bad memories, <em>that's</em> how different it is. All Todd sounds the same. But if you love it, you love it. You never get bored of it. On a pirate show last week, some DJ played 2 hours of Todd tracks, and said, half way through, "I was about to say, this is one of my favourites, but they're all my favourites!" I knew exactly what he meant.

Any fellow sufferers? If so, what makes Todd 'Jesus Juice' Edwards so addictive? And why do I find this predilection slightly perverse, like liking Jess Franco films, for instance? (Oh, and regarding the latter, I do, by the way.)

yes, I love Todd Edwards. I've only heard Full On 2 and the Nervous tracks thing, and about an equal amount of d/l'd stuff, but yes, he's unreal. His vertiginous mesmerizing detail has been well commented on ("ooer microsampling"), but what i love abt him is a) changes keys mid-phrase with a felicity very much like prime stevie wonder and b) that totally unique warm metallic palette of percussion sounds that are neither snares nor hats that populate his interstitial beats. I can't listen to him for too much too long, but I think that's the tempo getting to me.

I've never heard him out, but then, I don't go out, at least, not to hear anything where someone should be playing him and isn't. There is a track of his on a ukg comp I have and it does stick out a bit, he's a singularity.

the weird thing about todd is that he's not god over here, in this town (new york), not at all

some years ago i went in Dance Tracks which is the deep house store over here, got some kind of connection to the Body 'n'Soul lot, and asked for a Todd 12 inch and the guy gave me a sneery look almost as if i'd asked for something by Tiesto

Todd E played a rare dj set in manhattan a year or so ago, i got to meet him -- very nice, as you might imagine. has this weird glow about him, perhaps people who've been saved all have this vibe -- his skin seemed very fresh, you couldn't imagine him with five oclock shadow -- the set was good but got a bit wearing after a bit, all that gasping rapturous breath

still yes he's great and if i'd thought it had a hope of getting in there, i'd have proposed one of his tracks for the Wire's Great Riffs of All Time spread, probably push the love or alabama

Is Edwards a New Jersey denizen? I! records, his label is based there I think - is that the reason for the slight disdain from manhattanites? I'm just speculating, don't know much about New York prejudices. I guess that Metro Area are looked on more favourably by the Dance Trax clique though & they're New Jersey based. Perhaps its just that Edwards is seen as spawning a commercial sound, not serious enough for the dad-house beards. I love his stuff tho, even if he is a one-trick pony, it's a mighty trick

Hi, my name is Jess, and I've been a Todd sufferer for four years now. My favorite Todd Edwards trax are "Push The Love," "Incidental," "Never Far From You," as well as the remixes of "Alabama Blues," Mantra's "Away," and Hakan Lidbo's "Walk Away." For me, "Push The Love" might be his most sublime moment as well as one of his simplest. Yeah, yeah the crosshatching, BUT the real shiver up the spine moment is when the fairly untreated femme vocal goes "keep on pushin" and her pushin is smeared by echo into the middle distance, a fairly common house technique but executed goose-pimply perfectly. It's gorgeous late-nite neon longing business. My favorite Todd album is actually a mix cd he put together which features only a handful of his actual productions called "Tales From The Underground," which rides that brief 1998 interzone between speed garage and 2-step. (Btw, I think his influence on 2-step has been massively overstated.) It's a little more swingy/shuffley than his usual boogling bassline/skipping hi-hats preset. (As great as the Nervous stuff and the "Full On"s are, that endlessly sizzling, tsssching hi-hat can burrow right into your skull.) (Though all bets are off if I am driving.) The difference between Edwards and Akufen is one of speed (Todd rarely slows down or switches it up) (i.e. he's shooting specifically for the dancefloor every time) and one of force (his kicks really KICK, you can feel them in your chest.)

my name is laurie, and Todd the God first affected me when i started work at MVE in London....all the house boys there loved him, and it was contageous.... all about the Sample Choir 12" on Nervous, and his remix of Moloko...can't remember the tune, but i had a total epiphany to it in a mates car listenin to one of those 4x4 garage stations.......

also, all about the one Dan Bell drops on "the button down mind..." mix cd, remix of a Tuff Jam/RIP track i think.......sick tune....sick mix cd! anyone remember that? i rinsed that EVERY morning for about 3 months when i worked in the camden dance basement.......aaaah memories....!

Hi. I'm Michaelangelo, and I'm heading into my eighth year of Todd-mania. It all began with his remix of Mantra's "Away," which I heard on Tuff Jams Presents Speed Garage, a 1998 mix. I think that one's still my favorite. I saw him in 2001 (was that the same one you were at Simon? or are you talking about a different appearance?) at a NYC 2step night and he seemed . . . touched is I think the right word here. not stupid or anything, just kind of savant-like, as if he were answering to a different call than the rest of us at any given moment. (the "God is a DJ" shirt he wore didn't hurt either.) when he spun it took about a half-hour for the crowd to move en masse; most of 'em just stood there, bewildered. he played all his own tracks except for one I can't remember, which is exactly what I'd hoped he'd do.

favorite Todd-not-Todd fact: a LOT more techno people are fans of his than I'd have thought. I wrote a piece about Full On Vol. 2 and Akufen's My Way in the Village Voice last year (in which I was one of those people who overstated Todd's effect on 2step--sorry about that, kids, though he did have a good-sized effect on it if not like a fatherhood type one, and as that 2step night in NYC demonstrates he did get his props from that scene) and expected opprobrium from every direction. instead about a half-dozen people, all of whom I'd pegged as techno-not-house folk, asked, "Where the hell did you get that Todd Edwards CD? I had no idea there was one! I LOVE Todd Edwards!" it's still one of the nicest responses I've ever gotten from a piece.

fave trax/remixes: Mantra, "Away"; "Never Far from You"; "Beckon Call (2003 Remix)"; "Savior Tonight" ("You saved my life! YOU SAVED MY LIFE!"); Daft Punk, "Face to Face" (love that early '80s AOR vocal!); St. Germain, "Alabama Blues" (his masterpiece?); Kristine Blond, "Loveshy." search Full On Vol. 1 & 2.

this post is dedicated to Spencer Chow, Todd-ist supreme.

Ach!

I'll second this. If you could only have one Todd CD which would it be? I've liked everything I've heard, but I haven't heard very much.

One of my fave tunes is 'never far from you', buy there are bits in it that musically make no sense to me whatsoever - I think it's maybe the bassline, it just sounds really random - still really like it though. This happens in other tunes too, there are passages that I hear that make me wonder what on earth kind of key he's playing in - its not the modulation that throws me, its the key he uses within sections - it just sounds very weird to me. Sometimes everything seems normal and then he modulates somewhere into a new passage and all the tunefulness and harmony seems to disappear temporarily. maybe this makes me like it more, not sure. Anyone else get this feeling?

I'm here to proclaim my Todd addiction as well :) Lucky for me, there's a shop here in South Beach that gets i! releases quite regularly. Actually, last time I looked there were still 3 or 4 copies of Nu Trends 2004 in stock.

My current favs from TTG:

Walk With Me
Shut The Door
Stop the Fighting
Stormy Day

hoping for some new stuff to hit the shops soon. Saw a listing on the last Vibe Vee show that there's a new Todd white label out there. Anyone got it yet?

Hi I'm Paul and also a huge Todd fan,

I realised Todd was God when I first heard 'Sample Choir - The Praise'

and I agree with whoever remarked on his Key changes, they are so extreme and happen when you least expect them - what makes them so aurally arousing

i think my personal selection would b something like;

Heavy Weather - Love Can't Turn Around
Wildchild - Jump To My Beat (chorus is sick)
Can't You Believe
The Praise (God In His Hand)
Push The Love
Winter Behaviour
You Don't Want To Lose It
Forgiven
Radio Thing
You're The One

Yeah I dunno why its done that - bit annoying. Has done this before - only thing I did a bit different on this one compared to other recent mixes was increase the volume. Think that might be the problem as its done it before. My decks are in a different room to my computer so I have to record on minidsic and then plug that into my mac. I'm also using some pretty lame sound editor called Sound Studio that crashes all the time :mad:

talking about Todd as a substance and an addiction makes total sense, all his stuff really sounds like it's made from the same delicious goo, and overlistening really does seem strangely irresistable yet unhealthy at times, makes you queasy, delirious, you can't believe you can listen to something so cheesy and seemingly monotonous for so long. When a track by him comes in in the middle of a mix it's like some parts of the brain get suddenly switched on that you forgot existed. So it's the key changes and the microsampling, so many different emotions crammed into a bar, but what else, who here that knows about the technicalities of production can tell us? Akufen's stuff is deliberately disjointed like most IDM, but Todd's connects wild disparities into a single squiggly line. I wouldn't call it his best track but the one I've listened to most and have the most special connection to is 'Shut the Door' simply because it was at the start of a CD I had in my car, and I listened to it before and after I rang this girl and got rejected. It makes me melt.

So can anyone point out any of those weird keychanges in the mix DJL posted?

never really liked todd edwards. a few kids in my school used to collect his records, which i found funny at the time.

ALTHOUGH, i once remember listening to a mix of that kind of stuff my friend had done while i was off my face and thought it was fantastic. reminded me of click house with all the micro sampling and stutters.

his remix of phoenix is amazing.

Its weird - that mix is the first time I've played all those tunes together and it really takes away some of the disjointedness of the tunes. It's much more noticable when they are played on their own or next to regular UK Garage.

i'm really late, i know, but i think i'm catching this thing, which would follow, since i've been discovering all of this stuff backwards from the present. it has everything to do with falling more and more for itchy 2step with the mashed up vocals.

anyway, am i right in noticing a religious streak through his music? i've found at least one christian pop music site that bigs him up (http://www.christian-lyrics.net/community/discussion/324/check-out-todd-edwards-latest/) for this. "god will be there (http://www.juno.co.uk/products/68580-01.htm)" is a good example of tune that i think is musically fantastic but which i wouldn't want to play out or put in a mix. it's jarring, this sound that i associate with london pirates and a bit of hedonism next to this image of ardkore fundamentalist ravers peaking on G in the american heartland.

a little contextual help...?

and is "the best of i! records - 10 years of garage" a good entry point?

Hello everyone, my name is Matt, I first heard the dub mix of Alabama Blues on a Ministry Sessions CD by Frankie Knuckles in 1995 and promptly stopped going to jungle dos and started going to Twice as Nice and buying garage records as a result.

He does indeed live in New Jersey, he's a really, really nice guy. I've had the pleasure of interviewing him and hanging out with him a few times. I think its actually pretty exceptional that he manages to get hie religious message out through his music without alienating the listener. I mean think about it - he's a total God-botherer from Jersey (influenced by the work of Enya no less) yet a pirate DJ in London can play a two hour set of just his records and no one bats an eyelid. Imagine if the Jehovah's Witnesses figured out how to do that!

I think the reason is he doesn't ram it down people's throats, he conveys spiritual ideas a lot of the time that cross boundaries and even though he uses words, the messages that come through his music aren't in the language as much as they are the sounds, and they are only religious ones to him. If he put out "Gay Marriage Is Evil" (The No Stem Cells dub mix) he'd probably lose me, but he sticks to very primitive ideas of spirituality, which isn't unusual in house music. He has talked to me about the ultimate spiritual experience for him being working in the studio and feeling like God is there with him. He's a pretty intense guy, in the nicest possible way.

As for Todd the DJ - I've never thought he's the best guy for the job. He's a great producer, but if you really want to hear a DJ bring out the full potential and energy in his stuff, listen to EZ doing a live Todd set if you get the chance. He's really the only man up to the challenge. He used to do it a lot at Twice as Nice and people would be crying and shit.

My all time favorite Todds are the aforementioned Alabama Blues dub, Don't Turn Your Back On Love by Jay Collins Super 20, Accident, Winter Behavior and Fly Away. He also sings the vocals on a lot of his stuff (like Fly Away) and even vocalled a track for Daft Punk called Face to Face which is very Toddy and worth a listen.

He has talked to me about the ultimate spiritual experience for him being working in the studio and feeling like God is there with him.

Not wanting to appear too pretentious, the ease with which T E smoothly joins the ostensibly ill-fitting suggests the aid of a divine hand. As the devotional poet, George Herbert, said of the Almighty's crucial role in the creative process:

When thou dost favor any action,
It runnes, it flies;
All things concurre to give it a perfection.
That which had but two legs before,
When thou dost blesse, hath twelve: one wheel doth rise
To twentie then, or more.

Sadly I've never heard him dj, but I hold his work in really high regard. I can hear his influence from Akufen to UKG & 2Step. The religious aspect of his tracks doesn't bother me either, puts him in the deep house camp, somewhere near Boo Williams, even Tea Dance house. For me, its about hearing his heavy bouncing basslines and staccato sequencing. Yet another great producer out of Jersey.

I love him, but I was reading this article (http://www.garagemusic.co.uk/toddedwards.html) and his comment about 2step kind of threw me: "Todd: 'It reminds me a little of Latin freestyle that was over here. I respect it, but it's kind of simple for me.'" They don't follow up on it, which is weird... 2 step simpler than his 4x4? I want to know in what way he meant.

On another note, latin freestyle is beautiful music

It's a collection of some of the singles I've put out since the last 'Full On', some of the 'New Trends' tracks and some fresh stuff with different elements coming through. I spend a lot of time on sampling, on average I spend about a week just gathering samples and a week or so building a tune. Even when it's something like a remix I put my all into it and it can be very draining. I know I was blessed with a certain amount of talent. But it's not just me. I'm doing it for God. I believe God is using me as an instrument to spread love, I'm not in control. I don't want to force it down anyone's throat, I try to keep the positivity out there and keep the message there, but it's subliminal. It's only there if you need it.

Was it always a conscious thing to put spiritual messages in your music?

Yeah pretty much from the start. From my mid twenties, when I was 27 I guess, I got bolder with it. I'm proud of who I am and my relationship with God. It's not about preaching to people or making them follow rules, it's about having hope, having a friend and someone to turn to. The messages I put in tunes like 'Shut The Door' are very religious, very personal, but you don't need to hear that to enjoy the tune. I'm trying to put something positive back, there is so much hostility in the world, in the clubs, and what with the war building up...

Talking of clubs you were recently over here for EZ's 4 by 4 event. How was that and what did you think of the scene in the UK?

4 by 4 was brilliant. It was very humbling. I was... beside myself. I knew I had a following in the UK, but being in New Jersey you don't realise... I have friends in Jersey who like dance music but here I'm just Todd! It was very re-affirming. The garage scene in the UK is really interesting. There is definitely a power there, there is so much energy it borders on hostility. I went to a few clubs with EZ, and we saw some fights even break out. There are two types of energy, spiritual energy and hostile energy, I saw a bit of both in the UK but in both cases the DJ interaction was there.

Your music is so inspiring to so many. What music inspires you?

Recently it has been soundtrack music and orchestral music. I love sampling orchestra. Orchestra has chord changes that really change, that doesn't happen so much in dance music. I don't like doing the same thing. I've always said Mark Kitchen (better known as house producer MK) was a big inspiration, a lot of '70s music, disco, pop, everything inspires me. I'm not sure what genre the music I make is, I don't think it's my place to say where I fit in. I don't consider myself a house producer, even R&B and hip hop influence me, I don't know if you could tell but the Beckon Call remix was influenced by stuff Timbaland and the Neptunes are doing.

You get bootlegged a lot. Does that bother you?

It kinda sucks that people are stealing, I work hard, it's not all about the money but it's not really fair. It's also a form of praise though, if someone thinks my stuff is worth the risk of pressing up that's good, when you stop getting bootlegged is when you've got a problem!

A lot of it is down to your stuff not getting an official release. Like the 'Fully Loaded' project and several mixes which have only come out in Japan etc. Why does that happen?

Fully Loaded just got really complicated, what with everyone having their own really tight schedules as individuals; I don't think anything will be happening with that this year. With things like Bonnie Pink and M-Flo, who knows why people do what they do, just because you're a record exec it doesn't necessarily mean you know what the right thing to do is. But what are ya gonna do?

What is your favourite piece of studio kit?

The Akai S6000, it's a quality sampler, it's not without its bugs though... Also the Ensoniq EPS sampler which was the first one I ever used, it's a keyboard sampler with a really good swing feature. I bought it for $1400 and built an entire studio with the money it made me!

What can we expect to see from you in the future?

I want to do some more singing like on Beckon Call 2003 and Face to Face (with Daft Punk). I have a whole bunch of tracks that need vocals, plus I have some very interesting remixes on the horizon. 2002 was a very inspiring year for me, I felt I made some really good tracks and I'm looking forward to DJing more after New years Day. It looks like it will be a really good year.

I'm doing a bit of research on Todd the God at the moment so thought I'd bump this up a bit.


So it's the key changes and the microsampling, so many different emotions crammed into a bar, but what else, who here that knows about the technicalities of production can tell us?

Terror Danjah from Down Under's question appears to be unanswered and I wonder if there is a tendency to avoid a discussion of what is actually happening rhythmically in dance music criticism even in the work of Simon Reynolds & Kodwo Eshun. Kodwo starts More Brilliant than the Sun with a criticism of those who think that analyzing the groove kills its bodily pleasure but there doesn't appear to be much talk of things like tempo or time signatures.

I'm not familiar with this language myself but I wonder if someone with a better grasp of music theory can explain what it is that makes Todd's 4/4 style so infectious? I'm guessing its got something to do with syncopation and semiquavers...

Is it true he's a really devout christian? I guess "Shut the Door" is a bit of a giveaway, lol.

Still haven't heard his "No Scrubs" mix. :(

'No Scrubs' was finally released on i! last year I believe.

He has a new album out on CD now as well

Yeah, the No Scrubs (Dub Mix) is on Full On 3 which came out last year:

http://www.irecordings.com/releases/release.html?idRelease=352

Possibly the weakest in the series though. I thought a compilation of his remixes would have been better but its maybe too costly in terms of licensing for I Records to do it...

i think its more the way the tracks work and the melodic content that make them so catchy. lots of different samples cut up in a lively fashion... regular variation on the loops or sample arrangements creating movements every 8/16 bars. the melodic disco bass lines switching up and down in conjunction with the samples. his basslines are GREAT.

the timing in the drum beats isn't really any different to a lot of house producers, but the use of crunchy, lo-fi samples pitched up or down a bit is distinctive. simple tight punchy sound accentuates the swing.

his stuff is kind of under-produced but it has so much character and is so distinctive that it works really well.

Just got on a bit of a Todd binge for a few hours via youtube. Man.... Not much to say about this guy besides that he's really really great. Really intense vibe and emotion in these tracks not to mention the ill ill technical/musical dimension.

For the non-musicians: what he's doing is really hard. Finding, chopping and combining all those disparate samples is not easy at all. A lot of people think that working with samples is easy, which it is if you're taking whole loops from a piece of music and chopping/playing them against each other. Bringing together different pieces of music in different musical keys and tempos is really hard to do well, and boy does he.

Weirdest is that he's remixed Boris, as in the super-hip Japanese psych / metal types. Least weird is that it just sounds like any other Todd Edwards track. :D

Such happy , blissful vibes for Todd, definitely the highlight for me.

Generally though it was better earlier on before it started to get rammed, loads of garage and funky getting played which was so nice to hear through that sound system. Mosca was also very good, that small room seemed to have the best sound.

Hud Mo just didn't work for me, too stop-starty and the main room was so rammed at that point that you literally couldn't move, let alone dance. And I only endured about 5 minutes of Untold before I called it a night.

Honestly, if they let a few less people in in that club it would have been amazing but unfortunately all Fabric seems to be centred around is cramming as many people in as possible and rinsing them for all they're worth.

mrfaucet
10-01-2010, 12:04 AM
I didn't realise Mosca was on early so got there too late. Yeah it was just too busy for Hud Mo - it basically turned into a mosh pit when he first came on, which isn't what I really go to a club for. I just room 3 to be not painfully busy so just stayed there although it did mean I missed some sets I wanted to see.

Same problem I had with his set in Glasgow a few months back, too track-based for my tastes without enough attention paid to programming for a nightclub audience. I reckon his live shows will come in to their own in a few years if he pursues the production for artists and song thing (as in tracks with verses, chorus etc as opposed to just beat tracks), and has more releases under his belt to flesh out the show rather than just doing a run through of Butter or whatever. I reckon his stuff could work well with a band, not sure how it would work though, would have to use an electronic drum machine and sample bank to make the percussion work...

yeah when i've seen him play it's been a mess of slowish hip hopish instrumentals and fucking awful idm splatter fests and there is nothing to grab hold of, found the same with the album, ruined a perfectly good ep there, which is a shame as he's clearly quite talented and he's done some crackers, but when simon reynolds says this :

Special Award for Chronic Gluttage/Clottage

Hudson Mohawke, Butter

he's spot on when it comes to a good half of the album, could be a warp thing, they favour the 'fucked up' over the stuff you can dance to and enjoy on a physical level sometimes.

Cheers, I found the tracklist in the end on Rhythm Division
:http://rhythmdivision.co.uk/Old-Skool-EP-Go-Edition/prod_1394.html

Didn't find any garage in Black Market, mainly house and dubstep (lovely staff in there though). Great area for record shopping around there, picked up some nice stuff.

Also found three Zed Bias whites for £2 each and none of them appear to be on discogs. One labelled 'Eric Benet', another labelled 'Associates No 2 - Way you make me feel EP' and one called 'Don't walk away', all of them excellent. Anyone know more about them? This should be on the Great 2step thread really...

The eric benet one appears to have the full vocals he used on 'Been here before' incidentally.

He's playing in Toronto tonight in a small club at $5 admission.

I have spent the entire day scoffing at the lines of teenagers camped out in tents around our music television station so that they might get a free wristband admitting them into the music video awards where Justin Bieber, Drake and Miley Cyrus will be performing.

Hearing that packed dancefloor singing along with 'As I am' really set the goosebumps going. I was really taken aback and touched by how well that London crowd knew all his tracks, such a nice vibe.

24-06-2010, 04:37 PM
You know what? I was a little disappointed by the gig I went to, though I suspect this is because of the trend in British DJ's to "tailor" their sets to North American audiences. All the tunes of his own that he played were great, and I was thankful to hear them over a nice system delivered by the man himself, but anything else he drew for was paint-by-numbers electro house. Between the audience's unfamiliarity with his work and their total lack of enthusiasm for his electro selections (as well as his desperate shifting of gears between the two as he apparently tried to gauge the lesser evil), he cleared the floor out pretty quickly. I stayed for the whole thing, mind you.

It might be one of Todd's remixes of Anthill Mob's 'You Should Have Known':

Definitely one of my favourite Todd tracks.

I posted on this thread a few years ago when I was doing a bit of writing about Todd's microsampling techniques. An article has ended up in a book and there's a shorter version online: http://www.culturessonores.org/2011/sampling-spirituality-the-sound-of-todd-edwards-and-uk-garage/

He was supposed to be playing in Glasgow on Easter Sunday but according to his Twitter page it looks like he was recovering from a neck injury and might not have made it over to the UK.
