Ramping up the energy for Toolroom’s second release of the year, we see the return of powerhouse DJ and production duo Leftwing : Kody who team up with fast-rising producer James Hurr on their debut outing ‘Music Is the Medication’. Notoriously skilled in both the studio and in the booth, firm Toolroom favourites, Leftwing : Kody have established themselves as one of the most successful acts to come through the label. Their records alone have achieved critical acclaim and respect throughout the scene, from ‘If You Wanna’ and ‘Without You’ with Camden Cox to their ground-breaking ‘I Feel It’ which sits on 30 million plus streams on Spotify.
On the flipside James Hurr himself has seen huge success throughout 2022, with a string of hits across Toolroom, Toolroom Trax and Love & Other which has catapulted him into the forefront of every DJs USB and a go-to artist for serious club focused productions. With his records supported by some of the scenes biggest DJs from John Summit, Claptone and more, it’s safe to say 2023 is looking bright for the rising star.
Of course, also featuring is Reggae vocalist I Jah, who brings some Ragga styled heat to the record. Back to the track, ‘Music Is The Medication’ is a sublime record to kickstart 2023 with, mixing a tough, Tech House focused vibe with UKG styled breaks and a straight to the point Ragga vocal overlayed for maximum delivery means only one thing, a certified banger.
