The XLR8R podcast series is full of mixes from artists whose work we appreciate, but it definitely skews toward up-and-comers rather than grizzled veterans. Yet when a certified legend like Todd Edwards offers to put together an exclusive mix for us, we're happy to put the hunt for this week's 'greatest thing ever' on pause and retreat into fanboy mode. And although the New Jersey producer is widely recognized as one of the godfathers of garage and is routinely celebrated as a conquering hero in the UK, and the the rise of UK funky and so-called future-garage has spawned a whole new generation of admirers, Edwards refuses to simply rest on his laurels. Instead, he continues to DJ, release new music, and has even found the time to clear out his archive of unreleased remixes. On this mix, Edwards leans heavily on his own productions and remixes, including some unreleased gems, but also finds time to highlight some other tunes—both new and classic—that he's feeling.
