Hot Toddy ft Ron Basejam - I Need Love (Eskimo)

Bit late on this gem on Belgian Imprint Eskimo but when the music's this good, who cares right? Crazy P's Hot Toddy - or Chris Todd to his mum - shows us how driving a tune can be at a whopping 96 BPM. 'I Need Love' was one of the highlights of the excellent mix Craig Smith did for us a while ago. The track has it all: a badass bassline, haunting synth lines, uplifting piano bits, chuggy drums and perfect vocal delivery by Ron Basejam . Eskimo got Morgan Geist on remix duties, who keeps the tempo low but doesn't use much of Ron Basejam's vocals. Both versions are incredible, it's impossible to pick a favorite.

Without a doubt one of the best records of 2009.

Check out Morgan Geist's remix here:

P.S. Make sure to check out Hot Toddy's older releases on Winding Road, superb as well.


  1. "I Need Love" is such a highlight during a great year for music. Moody b-lines, pianos, and vox about dancing can be shaky ground sometimes, but they pull it off effortlessly.


  2. Hehe, isnt Hot Toddy feat. Ron Basejam as good as saying Crazy P? Im going to introduce Matt as Bleep District on my next YSE release ;)
