The swing of the drums, the textures of the instrumentation and fearlessness in taking on the classics (his Soundcloud page includes flips of tracks from James Brown, De La Soul and Michael Jackson) have marked him out from the crowd. One of the best-kept secrets in the scene, his singular talent is now beginning to get the recognition it deserves with an impressive list of fans including Gilles Peterson, Jazzy Jeff, Questlove and all of us here at The Doctor’s Orders. In the last 12 months he has remixed Little Dragon and been invited to take part in Jazzy Jeff’s Playlist Retreat. His signature style of incredibly clever sample flips and deft production chops are all on show on this new album for First Word Records. For this album Terrell Wallace had a simple inspiration: ‘This album is all about taking a journey. As simple as that. Be it physical, emotional or spiritual. It’s asking and answering personal questions from myself within some of the tracks and also touching on social issues i.e. racism, inequality and privilege…that have been at the forefront of my mind over last three years.” Experience this incredible sonic soundscape live for the very first time as TBG joins label mates Children of Zeus and DJs Gilla and Spin...
