This is where it all starts for us. We launched Local Action with T. Williams’ debut EP (though he’d already released several grime classics under his old name Dread D, when he rolled with Jon E Cash’s Black Ops crew), and released four singles by him in our first two years – including the classic ‘Heartbeat’, which was iTunes’ number three dance track of 2010.
T makes house that sits between UK Funky and more polished European gear, and does it with more authority than pretty much anybody else. After his first Local Action run he released on the PMR label, supporting Disclosure on a US tour, hosting a regular Rinse FM show and playing more shows than anyone else we know. He returned to the label in 2015 with the first Dread D record in a decade.
