For all Christian DJs playing UK garage, this record, which has been featured on top 10 listings by the Dream Teem, is the one to get. Todd Edwards is an American who is often credited as one of the godfathers of UK garage and is a committed Christian. This 12", licensed to Locked On, contains the original mix, but Todd's "Healed From Within" dub (a bit misleading as it has more vocals than the original) is the one to look out for. The vocalist, Sheryl, basically lays down a gospel message, pleading with the listeners to let God into their hearts and "shut the door" over a beautifully bumpy 4/4 UK garage track with Todd's trademark cut-up vocal sample riffs. This is definitely a big one.
