Toddla T is the stage name of Thomas Mackenzie Bell - a DJ, record producer, re-mixer and composer from Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England. Toddla T, born 22 February 1985, was raised in Sheffield. Toddla T started DJing at the age of 14 in the clubs and bars of Sheffield and by the age of 16 had left school to pursue a full-time career in the music industry. His stage name was given to him by the older Sheffield DJs who influenced him and was used to indicate his relative youth.

In the June 2010 issue of Sheffield's 'Fused' magazine Bell describes her as 'sound', 'genuine' and 'lovely'.
