TmTsReleased: 2013

In their first year together, new hip-hop duo Too Many T’s were prolific giggers. They played shows alongside some top names including Rudimental, Grimes, Scroobius Pip, Wiley, The Cuban Brothers, Foals, Rob Da Bank – a big fan – and many others. They also played alongside The Correspondents, who they share a lot of DNA with.

Proponents of the new movement towards ‘electro swing’, their tunes take samples that draw on 50s doo-wop and funk, an approach that gives a unique backdrop to the raps they write over the top. The production is excellent too – sounding simultaneously modern and old fashioned. No mean feat.

Highlights from the EP include the speedily delivered 1992, which is built around an instantly catchy funk riff, and closer Hazard which you can imagine being a real sing-along hit at their gigs. It’s a remarkably consistent release, high quality throughout, and highly recommended.
