T2 (born Tafazwa Tawonezvi)[1] is a British bassline record producer. He has been mixing since his teens, and began releasing tracks in 2006. In 2007, his single "Heartbroken", featuring Jodie Aysha, hit #2 on the UK Singles Chart.[2] The song became popular among football fans because its video, which has had over three million hits on YouTube, featured stars Micah Richards and Anton Ferdinand.[3] T2 rewrote the lyrics of the tune late in 2007, in support of Ricky Hatton's boxing match against Floyd Mayweather.[4]

In 2008, T2 joined up with Addictive to release "Gonna Be Mine" in March that year, and also produced most of their upcoming album.

He has also worked with Dizzee Rascal, Craig David, and Rebecca Ferguson.
