Perfect match?

Sheffield based wonky dancehall producer Toddla T has signed a new deal with Ninja Tune.

Emerging from Sheffield's club scene, Toddla T's music spans genres and even countries. Giving dancehall a uniquely North of England sensibility the producer added in chunk of soul, dubstep and even indie.

Releasing his debut album 'Skanky Skanky' through 1965 Recordings, Toddla T has since parted ways with the label. Working with a variety of artists, the producer has avoided settling down in one place.

Working with the likes of Tinchy Stryder, Bashy and Jammer. Achieving mainstream radio play, Toddla T could well be on the verge of breaking through to the mainstream.

Now the Sheffield producer has put pen to paper with Ninja Tune. The esteemed label boasts Roots Manuva on its roster, and the twin talents have plenty of experience working with each other.

"I'm so happy with signing with Ninja" the producer claimed. "Not only have they got a ridiculously good background but they're such good people and so enthused by me joining."

"I'm really looking foward to getting stuck into the next album with them as well as working on my Girls Music label alongside them. Dutty!"

Meanwhile, Ninja Tune head honcho Peter Quicke was overjoyed at capturing the acclaimed young talent. "We're delighted to have added Toddla to our roster. As we approach our twentieth anniversary it's great to find someone who was four when we started out and yet who shares our original ethos while updating it and making it new again."

Toddla T is currently working on his second album.
