Evan Holm is convinced that ‘there will be a time when all tracings of human culture will dissolve back into the soil under the slow crush of the unfolding universe’.

Dummy Mix 197 // Todd Edwards
Todd Edwards shouldn’t need much of an introduction, but we’ll give you one anyway.
Originally hailing from New Jersey, Edwards started releasing garage house records in the early 1990s marked by his distinctive, cut-and-paste vocal reconstructions. Today, those are some of the most recognisable sounds in club music, while his production technique proved to be a major catalyst for the initial explosion of UK garage. He’s also the voice of Daft Punk’s Face To Face (and its co-producer) and, more recenty, Fragments Of Time. Now based in Los Angeles (he moved out there following his work with Daft Punk on ‘Random Access Memories’), Edwards was up on-stage at the GRAMMYs barely over a week ago.
Needless to say, you could happily describe Todd Edwards as a legend, but such a term doesn’t do justice to the fact that, 20 years on, Edwards is still at the top of his game. His mix for Dummy is a case in point: the selections are upfront, the mixing deft and dextrous.
Edwards will be in the UK playing in Room One at Fabric tomorrow (February 7th) for Fabriclive, alongside Jackmaster, SCNTST, and Moxie, so he put together a quick mix for Dummy ahead of that, focusing on his new city’s house scene. We’re immensely proud to be hosting this: have a listen on the Dummy player, and head over to our Soundcloud page to download it.
Hi, Todd! How are you?
Todd Edwards: “I’m great - I just had the best week of my life!”
What do you have in store for us with this mix?
Todd Edwards: “From living in LA, I’ve been drawn to its house scene. The energy here is having a significant impact on my DJ sets and my productions. In this mix, I’ve chosen a selection of tracks and producers that inspire me.”
I heard you met Stevie Wonder at the Grammys recently…
Todd Edwards: “Well… technically, I didn’t really meet him. At the Daft Punk afterparty he walked by, and in my raised blood-alcohol levels I got overly excited and yelled pretty much in Mr. Wonder’s ear “You were amazing tonight!” Thankfully, I don’t think he knew it was me.”
One of my favourite Todd Edwards stories of recent came on your birthday, when you shared that you had full ownership of your music for the first time. If you had one other music industry tip to pass on to young musicians, what would it be?
Todd Edwards: “My tip is this: if anyone ever makes you feel that you can’t make it without them, chances are you don’t need them. Don’t let any scare tactic make you feel like ‘this’ is your only chance. It’s not. I’ve been here for 20 years. There are unlimited opportunities. Make sure you have a good team around you, a manager that encourages you and believes in your work, booking agents, and a good lawyer. You might not be able to do it all at first, but work towards that goal.”
You also said that you’d have a new album out this year. Can you give us a hint as to what to expect?
Todd Edwards: “I am writing an album of songs that will cross different genres of music. Some of it will be dance, but expect more. It will be an album with real instruments -
01. Luke Vibert - Double Dipped Acid
02. Sanfuentes - For Those About To Jack
03. NOTV - Like I Should
04. Waze & Odyssey - Everything (You’re Made Of)
05. John Newman - Losing Sleep (Bitr8 & Elrose remix)
06. Simion - Jack Ur Body
07. Todd Edwards - Steal Your Heart
08. James Del Barco - Your Body
09. Lee Jeffrey - Freaky Hat On The Hill
10. Crown Duels - Dance
11. Coeo - Do It
12. Crown Duels - The One
13. Golf Clap - Dream Trippin (Low Steppa remix)
14. Velcro - City Of Angels
The Story Behind… The Nine
Last week saw the return of an undisputed D&B classic: Bad Company – The Nine.
16 years old and gun fingers still guaranteed, regardless of the DJ playing it or whatever sub-genre it’s being mixed into, the minute THAT reece roars its way into the blend, you know what level of chaos is going to occur.
Each member of the influential crew have gone on to carve their own sound and creative motif, we caught up with Bad Taste bossman Vegas to ask a few questions…. Why remaster it now? Can we expect another reunion?
PLUS, the question every D&B fan has asked since it first emerged all those years ago – what does The Nine’s title actually mean?
Let’s rewind, man…
It’s a bit crazy… The Nine wasn’t even a main track when it was first released. We didn’t realise the power it had until we started mixing it into other records. The way it works from the first 16 drop into the second, the bit when the hi-hats come in just after that big reece chase, it’s so simplistic but it captured something that wasn’t around at the time. Sometimes a tune embraces the essence of what is there already; it broke it down for everybody. As soon as people like Andy C mixed it from that reece, it just got taken in the wind. It’s just a wicked a DJ tool really.
Just a wicked DJ tool?
Ha! You know what I mean.
So none of you knew how big this would be when you were all in the studio making it?
Not specifically, no. We knew we were happy with it but we couldn’t predict anything more than that. It was actually written by Fresh and Maldini. We’d all be in the studio on different days in different combinations. We were pumping things out. The mixing desk was a live analogue one. You had to get the track finished and done and then move on to the next one. You couldn’t just do something, save it and come back to it like you do now. One session, one track. You HAVE to finish it. Next one.
Wow. Tell us about some of the hardware you were using…
The heart of it was an EMU 16400 Ultra sampler. It was run through the desk, Mackie speakers and a whole load of distortion pedals and compressors externally. We sequenced on an Atari ST with a really early version of Cubase. We’d have sampling sessions before we’d start a track; old music, old films, anything. We might find one break or some old hats or anything that captured an aura. We never looked for samples to fit something, we would start with the sample.
Do you miss those days?
Yes and no. I think some people need to check what they do because they’re making over-produced, sterile crap. But us lot? We were there originally, so we still have that mind-set. I love the equipment we have available to us now, but I still have that original approach. You have to enjoy it and feel it; that’s the most important thing. Don’t just sit there and labour over making beats sound ‘perfect’… Do that and you lose any traces of soul.
How long did you guys labour over The Nine?
I think about a day. Some tunes we’d be tinkering with ideas for a few days before bringing it all together in seven or eight hours. The Nine, as I recall, was a very quick session.
Isn’t it about time you told us what the title is a reference to?
Ha! It’s a secret.
It’s been a secret for 16 years now and I’m not going to spoil that. Darren, Jason and Dan are the only men who know the secret.
YOU don’t know the secret then?
No, I was never told.
Haha, okay, I DO know what The Nine is. Or should I say I do know who The Nine are…
Woah… Are these people in drum & bass or jungle?
Nah, it’s MUCH deeper than that. Don’t push me, you’re not getting any more than that!
Intriguing. So did any of you have a clue at what awaited you in the future? Or were you living in the moment?
We were absolutely living in the moment. We were kids watching something unfold in front of us. It’s cheesy but it did feel spiritual. We could feel the energy coming back at us. Standing in front of thousands of people and watching them go crazy to our music, it was incredible. It was never forced. Everything felt very natural. That’s the most important thing. We were there, just living it, absorbing it and not caring about the future.
Give me the proudest moment…
Mad you ask this question. Earlier this month on Facebook I saw a picture of me and dBridge in Sao Paulo from the year 2000. I was like ‘woah! This was my best moment in drum & bass ever ever ever!’ I jumped on and commented. The thread went on and on, even people like Marky got involved and eventually someone called Cable jumped on with this video…
For 14 years I’d never seen it. I’ve been telling people about this as my Bad Company highlight and suddenly there it was to relive. I know Darren felt the same, he’s posted it saying it was the best night he’s ever had himself. It was ridiculous. I’d been to so many concerts and shows before then but this was something else. It was underground, it was tribal. Brazil is a musical rhythmical country and this club was ghetto. It wasn’t showy or pretentious or any of that, it was the real thing.
Wow. So what’s next and why now?
This has been on the cards for a few years but we’ve been finding time and finding DATs. Bad Taste is in a good place, all the guys are up for it so it’s happening naturally. There are many exciting projects planned…
You re-united at the Exit party last year, will that happen again?
Sure. We’re all at a very good stage of our careers now. There’s no pressure. We’re just up for having a bit of fun.
That Exit party was amazing. Seeing the next generation go as mental to our music as kids did back in the day was very special. It was big room but we filled it totally. We didn’t know how well it go down. We were more than chuffed with it and will definitely be doing it again. Watch this space!
EXIT Adventure (Exit Festival + Sea Dance Festival)
One Adventure, Two Countries, Seven Days, Countless Memories
Brace yourselves: EXIT’s biggest adventure is about to take place! After last year’s X-Bass Main Stage success, the award winning festival is set to go event further and get even louder!
So crank up your soundsystems, set your amps to max volume and prepare yourselves for a once-in-a-lifetime event that spans two countries and features some of the most exciting names in electronic music. The first of a long list of exciting live acts promising to blow up the EXIT backline are none other than SKRILLEX, RUDIMENTAL, DUB FX and KOVEN!
SKRILLEX is one of the most inspirational figures for the new generation of electronic music fans and is one of the most wanted DJs in the world. With a genre-defying armoury that includes Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites and Bangarang, he’s not only won the audience’s hearts, but also six Grammy awards, including Best Dance Recording and Best Dance/Electronica Album as well as MTV Video Music Award. In July 2012, he reached the top of the Billboard Social chart – with nearly 15 million followers on Facebook, and over 3 million on Twitter. Currently in the midst of planning a brand new live show for summer 2014, Skrillex is guaranteed to rock EXIT festival to pieces with never-seen-before special effects and previously unheard audio. Make no mistakes: Skrillex’s appearance at EXIT is going to go down in festival legend.
RUDIMENTAL also promise to shake the fortress walls down to their very foundations. Breakthrough Act Of The Year in 2013, as voted by more than half of million fans on UK Festival Awards, RUDIMENTAL, have taken the British and European music scene by storm. Bursting out of London’s underground music scene Rudimental are coming to EXIT with their amazing live show. A pioneering melting-pot collective championed for their uncompromising approach to music-making whilst avoiding rigid classification. This act reached number one in the UK Official Charts with their single „Waiting All Night“ in April 2013, beating even Daft Punk to the top spot. Two weeks later, their album Home debuted at number 1 on the UK Albums Chart. No other act stirs a musical melting pot with as much flavour or thunder as Rudimental… And EXIT Festival can’t wait to have them on board!
An addition to the powerful bass lineup comes in the form of Benjamin Stanford, aka DUB FX. Set to performing on Thursday, July 10, Dub FX has developed a remarkable following through a wholly DIY approach. Everything he does is created with his own voice and serious loop-technology wizardry. His video for “Love Someone”, recorded in the streets in 2008, serves as the perfect example of his unquestionable talent. A veritable postmodern messiah, he will present his third studio album “Theory of Harmony” to the EXIT audience. Released only a month ago, it’s a unique manifesto of his philosophy: peace, positivity, joy and healthful pursuits. Something we can all relate to and embrace!
We can also confirm the appearance of white-hot bass-burning duo KOVEN. Creators of one of last year’s hottest singles “More Than You”, they will be performing at EXIT’s Main Stage on Friday, July 11. You can expect the full package from these dubstep youngsters, especially their live set all infused with grinding bass combinations and effortless musicality. From the moment of their arrival to the bass scene, they became favorites of many stars, including The Prototypes, Borgore and Hadouken.
EXIT Festival is also proud to announce a second year of partnership with the world renowned new music champions UKF. A leading tastemaker in the very best new electronic music, over 7 million subscribers regularly tune into their channel for exclusive content. With a truly international event pedigree, UKF will once again be taking full responsibility for the Main Stage night schedule takeovers from 1am right the way through to EXIT’s iconic fortress sunrise.
Headliners such as Skrillex deserve a mind-blowing after party…And we know UKF are going to deliver that with their next-level line-ups and their on-point explosive vibe. All will be revealed very soon.
EXIT was crowned ‘Best Major Festival ‘at the 5th annual European Festival Awards, which took place at Groningen’s De Oosterport in The Netherlands on January 15th. More than 360 festivals from 34 different countries applied to take part in this year’s European Festival Awards, and over 620,000 festival fans all over the world voted.
