There’s something to be said for getting noticed, for standing out from the crowd. Standing out for the right reasons though isn’t always the case. London’s T.Williams is one of those ‘right’ cases, having accomplished a full sweep of merited recognition over the last few years. Emerging onto the house scene in 2010, T.Williams instantly marked himself as a breakthrough artist with a difference; his unique take on house music turning heads.
Whilst he may appear new to the house scene, Tesfa Williams is far from a newcomer to music with a decade of experience behind him in the grime scene as Dread.D. Signed at the tender age of 17 to Jon E Cash’s Black Op’s with ‘Invasion’, Williams went on to have mass success in the grime and bass world selling thousands of singles worldwide. After a five year reign, Williams found himself veering towards the world of house music. With a new found love of house and its sub-genres, T.Williams has since forged a sound signature that blends his grime days, jungle, and garage and the evolution into house. With a style that undoubtedly impacts, T.Williams’ crossover sound has been the catalyst for his success. Not only rife with groove and feeling but meticulously produced and engineered, deep rumbling bass lines collide with the aggressive bounce of grime, house vocals bleed through intricate percussion work and calypso swing and African undertones ricochet off hard edged dub.
