New Toddla T track!

Hailing from Sheffield or "da steel city", Toddla T finally delivers a new original track, featuring the hugely fun vocal talents of Jamaican legend Wayne Marshall. Though he's been busy hosting his radio show, remixing, creating mixes and pretty much everything aside from recording he's finally back.

Here's the story of how the collaboration came about according to Toddla's website:
"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 wander in but the one-and-only Wayne Marshall who asked Toddla to play him some riddims. As soon as he heard the beat which would become 'Sky Surfing' the rest was history!"
Though I'm not a fan of auto-tuned vocals, Mr. T keeps it tasteful and manages not to overuse the effect; a notion lost on a lot of today's producers, particularly in the funky scene. Coupled with the wobbly bassline it actually works pretty well and earns itself a place in the tiny arena of "funky tunes I don't hate".

Stay tuned for the remixes which should be up and about in a month or so - the Douster mix is probably going to be the big one...
