"When Toddla T was asked if he fancied the label commissioning producers for a remix album of 'Watch Me Dance' he had a much better idea. He asked two legends of the Sheffield underground music scene -- Ross Orton and DJ Pipes to agitate, smash and rebuild his album in the manner of the scene that shaped his sound. Toddla met Pipes when he was a wide eyed teenager working in a skate shop in Sheffield. Pipes a rough-handed bass hooligan was resident at Scuba and the infamous Kabal parties whilst masquerading as one third of the Desperate Soundsystem with Pulp's -- Cocker and Mackey. Orton and Pipes bonded with the young Master T over a shared love of Dancehall and subterranean bleeps. A renowned designer as well as DJ -- and instrumental in the Sheffield underground music scene for well over a decade -- Toddla has described Pipes as his number one inspiration. Orton, meanwhile, in between working on the Toddla T records, was a member of Fat Truckers, the drummer for Jarvis Cocker and, as the Cavemen (with Steve Mackey of Pulp) wrote and produced MIA's 'Galang.'"
