T.Williams Returns With Underground House Anthem and Heads out on Ship2Ship Tour 


T.Williams returns in 2015 with a seminal ode to past and present, Back & Forth. This club ready track harnesses the sounds of today and fuses them with T’s dark, stomping London roots in a mosaic of house, grime, and bass.

Back & Forth melds a percussive whirlwind with the rattling bass-line that T has become known for, all tied together with a dance floor shattering, 90’s rave lead and commanding vocal. This track will accompany T.Williams aka Tesfa Williams on the Ship2Ship Tour with DESTRUCTO, Anna Lunoe, and Motez after a massive back to back showing with Disclosure on Holy Ship.

Since emerging from the grime world, T. now puts his gritty, bass heavy spin on the 4/4 sound. Five years after being signed to Jon E Cash’s Black Op’s with ‘Invasion’, he went on to dominate the grime world as Dread.D. His constantly evolving taste pushed him towards the world of house music, as his bass focused, garage ridden style blended with the club sound. It is this collision of roots that has been the catalyst for T’s genre defying success, exemplified by his three EP’s for the tastemaking PMR.
