Todd is one of the world’s most celebrated figures in dance music. With almost two decades of dance floor domination under his belt, the quality of his productions goes from strength to strength.
The Grammy Award nominated DJ/Producer has been engulfed in the British dance music scene since 1988. His first release ‘Keep On Jumpin’ became a top 10 UK crossover hit and worldwide smash, Todd followed with the anthem ‘Somethin’ Going On’, a crossover hit across the globe.
He continued to break new ground as a producer and remixer - from SNAP to Annie Lennox and George Michael to Bjork, Todd’s mixes bridge the ground between club-cool and commercial accessibility.
Welcome to the church of house music presided over by Todd the God!
