Vinyl Week: Thursday

The penultimate post in our vinyl week is finally upon us - if you're new to this concept you can check out the previous posts at the bottom of this one.

On to today's post - Todd the God Edwards had to be included in this week really, the UK garage don played a pioneering role in the development of the genre, without even being in the UK. MJ Cole famously once said
'Todd Edwards started the whole UK Garage thing off without setting foot in the country. He was my biggest influence when I started making garage music.' Look Out was released in 2000 as part of the 'Prima Edizone' CD, and was one of the two new tracks on the record. Look Out channels a filtered disco vibe, marrying moody, off-kilter sounds with a sweetly aching vibe that draws you, mesmerised, into his sound. The dubplate mix does away with the vocals, drawing attention to the melodies and captivating drum programming that made Edwards so famous.
