Review: Hot Toddy – I Need Love

Artist: Hot Toddy
Title: I Need Love
Label: Eskimo
Genre: Disco/ Nu-Disco
Format: Digital (Juno exclusive), 12″
Buy From: Juno Records, Juno Download

Belgian label Eskimo teased us with “I Need Love’s” inclusion on the superb Cosmic Balearic Beats Volume 2 mix a few months back, and now Hot Toddy’s slow burning disco gem gets a full release.

Hot Toddy is Chris Todd, Nottingham-based guitarist and part of the production team behind Crazy P, and his first solo release in three years is a dark, moody piece of disco-noir.

Ron Basejam’s deep vocal takes the track to another level, while the typically brilliant dub mix by Morgan Geist sees a deep, rumbling baseline bounce off twangy key stabs.
