Todd Edwards

Luke thinks that Todd is boring and girly, but he likes the odd exceptional track.

I'm still a Todd addict.

Prima Edizione and Nervous Innovator Series are two of my most treasured albums. That rare 90s Todd gold is the best stuff.

Luka is custom made for a walk on part in the Satirycon. He probably wouldn't be caught bumming his best mate, though, much as he might desire it.

you'd be what a semi-hard drinking debonair pontifex, maybe a rhetorician Cicero type, or maybe Juvenal actually

Corpsey would be some kinda scribe who also wrote histories that were rediscovered a thousand years later by pre-Renaissance monk scholars

I'd be idk, a centurion who died in the mud in Gaul somewhere/middle-ranking bureaucrat

Probably a Juvenal with pathetic pretensions to be a Cicero, while actually being a sad Catullus without the talent or connections, but all the vices.

Martial, basically.

Todd the human is an absolute dweeb, that's why.

The Tri-State Area house scene for all its non-masculine vibes has a bunch of guys as producers who are very masc. and urban whereas Todd is this precious weird white Jesus Freak from suburban New Jersey. This has nothing to do with his music (which I love) but you think about the guys who ran the scene in the early 90s and you think about just how grating the earnestness and preciousness of Todd Edwards is and always has been (which really stands out IN his production) and you realize how he had to be a nightmare to be around in club settings.

LoL poor dweeby Todd

Was missing to myself today (as is my wont) that the UK might have been a more receptive market for Todd cos of ardkore and jungles use of sped up chopped up singing samples. This is probably a point already made in Energy Flash etc...

So apart from living on the other side of the Hudson, he's much like yourself?

EZ played this about 24 hours into his 24 hour charidee set. Not one of his classics but I like it.

This is the way we listen to Todd and it's what Boxed Joy is talking about - the UK rave & 2-step chemical readjustment that meant his style was almost custom made for us.

There is also another way of listening, though, which is as Martian Pop Music.

I still don't really like his new stuff that much, by which I mean post-2000, although I love this:
