Sali are a British band with friends in high places. For their debut release, they’ve managed to coax the notoriously shy and retiring M.I.A. out from behind the sofa. ‘ToldYa’ is a clattering mix of Asian-influenced beats, cut-up vocal samples and Sali’s gurgled flow. Like his bezzie mate, Sali is a big fan of political rhetoric (or “politricks” as he calls it) but at the end of the day the beat is bangin’, the bass is phat and M.I.A. sounds fired up.
