Born and raised in Sheffield, Tom “Toddla T” Bell’s first musical obsession was hip-hop when he was 9 years old via Tim Westwood and Yo!
MTV Raps. It wasn’t long before he discovered reggae, dancehall, house, UK garage and other forms of more club-based electronic music.
In 2009, Bell released his debut album ‘Skanky Skanky’, an LP packed with guest spots from the likes of Roots Manuva, Tinchy StryderSerocee, Joe Goddard and Benjamin Zephaniah. It also came with a bold visual aesthetic that later down the line would ultimately, accidentally, spawn a clothing label.
Steeze started out as merchandise, quickly expanding as the striking t-shirts became highly sought after. Now Steeze is an all-encompassing brand that includes a clothing label, website and record label.
Around this time, he “accidentally landed a job on the BBC as a broadcaster”, as he puts it. An Essential Mix led to a demo which led to a show and he’s been on Radio 1 and 1Xtra ever since.
In 2011, he released his second album ‘Watch Me Dance’ on Ninja Tune, which featured arguably his biggest track to date “Take It Back” with J2K and Shola Ama.
With each release, Toddla T brings in wider and wider influences and Foreign Light is no different. Despite that stronger R&B influence from Andrea Martin, Toddla still manages to incorporate a tonne of other sounds, with features from Casisdead, Stefflon DonCoco, Silkki Wonda and Addis Pablo (son of dub legend Augustus Pablo).
