Lecture: Todd Edwards (New York, 2013)
House legend and Daft Punk collaborator Todd Edwards on the couch at Red Bull Music Academy 2013 in New York.
Edwards is well known for his hypnotic collage of cut-up samples over swung house beats and extremely juicy, disco-flavoured bass lines. Credited as one of the godfathers of UK garage, his trademark sound on his early releases on NYC house labels like i! Records and Nervous quickly cemented his status in underground dance music circles across the pond. He has also remixed Moloko, Justice, Phoenix, St Germain, Klaxons, and even Boris, amongst numerous others and he co-produced and sang on Daft Punk’s Face To Face on their milestone album Discovery.
