The melding of influences and aspirations in Todd the Rocket’s musical presentations is fantastic: sweaty juke joint soul and jazz meet street samba and backroom bossa nova, electronic lounge sounds echo the space age bachelor pad static of yesterday’s hi fi sets, rare disco twists with early electro boogie via first generation hip hop and house into a tight knot on the dancefloor, modern electronic dance music and smart pop thread the needle of all these elements.
