Todd the God Edwards. In an unlikely turn of events, how did an American become one of the heroes of Uk garage? All whilst casually collaborating with Daft Punk, Nile Rodgers, Disclosure & Pharell Williams, who are just a few names that have recognised his wizardry in the studio. Aside from his musical talents, he’s probably one of the nicest blokes in electronic music.
House legend, Daft Punk collaborator, and Grammy winner Todd Edwards is known for his hypnotic collage of cut-up samples over swung beats and lively disco-flavored basslines.
Credited as one of the godfathers of UK garage, his four-to-the-floor beats have earned him a passionate following. In addition to his own legendary productions, Edwards has remixed Daft Punk, Phoenix, Justice, Matthew Dear, Hot Chip, Spank Rock, Boris, Appaloosa, Klaxons, Surkin, Robin S, Zoot Woman, St. Germain, and Dimitri From Paris.
Edwards is the only artist Daft Punk has collaborated with twice: he sang, co-wrote, and co-produced “Face to Face” from Daft’s 2001 album ‘Discovery’ and “Fragments of Time” from Daft’s 2013 album ‘Random Access Memories,’ for which he received a Grammy.
