Doc Daneeka is usually known for his hard hitting, usually instrumental, UK-funky tinged tracks. So what's this collaboration with the beautifully voiced Abigail Wyles all about?
"Without question, "Toby Jug" is a bit of an unexpected curveball. It's a puzzling selection, although that doesn't mean the track isn't any good. On the contrary, it's a well-crafted piece of downtempo electronic pop, a production that's actually quite minimal. "Toby Jug" accompanies her melodically soulful pipes with little more than a simple piano melody and some stripped-down, R&B-flavored percussion. In the wrong hands, a song like this could be absolutely dreadful, a sub-Dido number suitable for the kinds of chillout compilations that soundtrack high-end day spas. But Doc Daneeka smartly avoids any potential cliches, and simply allows the song to breathe while Wyles commands center stage."
