Grammy nominated producer Todd Edwards has worked with Scion AV over past few years on multiple projects as his career has enjoyed a resurgence, culminating with his work on Daft Punk on 2013’s highly anticipated Random Access Memories album, which is nominated for Album of the Year. Edwards is an under-praised house music legend who Daft Punk first collaborated with on 2001’s classic Discovery. For Random Access Memories, Edwards sang and co-wrote the song “Fragments of Time,” earning him a nomination in the Album of the Year category.
Edwards is credited as one of the godfathers of the genre known as UK garage, even though he is from New Jersey, and is a prolific remixer. Recently he’s also teamed with young artists like Surkin and released new music on upstart record labels like Body High.
Scion AV first worked with Edwards by enlisting him to remix both fellow house hero Roy Davis Jr.’s “I Have a Vision” release and doom masters Boris’ “Buzz-In.”
Edwards later offered the I Might Be EP, his own release of original music on Scion AV. On this uptempo, cut-up jammer, Edwards brought in an eclectic selection of remixes from Joy Orbison, MJ Cole, Feadz and My Dear Disco.
During the 2011 edition of the Scion Music(less) Music Conference, Edwards gave a revealing one-on-one interview about this career and the obstacles he’s had to overcome. He also opened up his New Jersey space up for one of the conference’s studio tour videos.
In anticipation of the release of the Scion iQ in 2012, Edwards provided the score for Compact City, an animated art film that showcased the talents of many of the creative individuals that Scion AV works with. For Edwards contribution he remixed and re-edited several other Scion AV releases.
During 2013, he launched Face to Face Radio, his new show on Scion Streaming Radio. In his first months he’s brought in guest mixes from up-and-comers including DJ Vaden, Sam from Pharoahs and Paradise.
It’s been great to see all the good that’s happened to Edwards over these past few years and we wish him the best of luck at the Grammys. It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy!
