Following on from their recent releases ‘The Stand Off’ and ‘The Sting’, Tobtok & Adam Griffin are back at it again with their latest release ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ a rework of Depeche Mode’s well known classic. The pair produce a modern dance twist whilst still keeping the catchy raw elements of the original.
Having collaborated twice already, this duo are making quite the storm in the dance scene, with support coming from the likes of Annie Nightingale on BBC Radio 1, Steve Smart, Justin Wilkes and Apres for ‘The Sting’ followed by Mistajam self certifying ‘The Stand Off’ and championing the record multiple times in his Future Dance Anthems show on BBC Radio 1! Other supporters include Idris Elba, Gareth Wyn, Hardwell, Watermat, Todd Edwards, Riva Starr, Patrick Hagenaar & Redondo to name a few.
Although being relatively new to the music scene Adam Griffin is no stranger to the industry. A keen DJ from the early 90’s playing pivotal London venues such as The Cross and Hanover Grand, he has also played senior roles within the music industry at imprints like RCA and INCredible – Sony’s flagship dance label. After years of commercial and underground experience, Adam co-founded and continues to run Perfect Havoc alongside Robert Davies, creating a template for a modern 360 degree music business. Perfect Havoc has made an indelible mark and has already generated close to 100 million streams thanks to support from industry leaders such as BBC Radio 1, KISS FM, and more.
Hoxton’s ever popular indie imprint, Perfect Havoc have gathered a fantastic selection of talent in Paul Woolford, Cazztek, Kokiri, Tobtok, Raven & Kreyn and Bruer & Bright Lies to add their own spin to Mahalo x DLMT’s huge hit, ‘So Cold’. This bumper collection lands on 22nd November following the single’s original release on Perfect Havoc back in March, since when it’s taken over US radio and rapidly clocked up millions of streams online. Journeying through piano, progressive, bass and more, this six-part remix package has an offering to suit all house music tastes.
‘So Cold’ was born from a collaboration between two fast rising stars, each boasting an impressive list of plaudits. Los Angeles’s Mahalo has seen support from Tiesto, Mark Knight, Nora En Pure, Judge Jules, Blonde and many more for his releases on Bunny Tiger, Enormous, Insomniac’s In/Rotation, Armada and Toolroom. For Toronto-based, DLMT, DJ support has come in from the likes of Oliver Heldens, Tchami, Shaun Frank and Jord, with releases on Virgin/EMI, Confession, Armada and Enhanced Music. His 2018 release on Future House Music, ‘Always Feels Like’, has now amassed over 11 million streams.
Mahalo & DLMT’s standout original, with crystal-clear vocals from Lily Denning, has been one of the breakout dance hits of this summer. The track still resides in Spotify’s Mint, has had 5.1 million streams on the platform with more than 50k added each day, over 6 million hits on Apple Music and YouTube, and achieved #1 in the Billboard Dance Mix/Show Airplay chart. And that’s not to mention extensive radio support from SiriusXM, iHeartRadio and Music Choice, and DJ support from Tiesto, Hardwell, Joel Corry, Lost Frequencies and many, many more.
First to remix ‘So Cold’ is Paul Woolford, the red hot UK producer who has turned out some of the biggest tunes of the year, from his vocal house anthem ‘You Already Know’ with Karen Harding (another Perfect Havoc regular) to his remix of Whitney Houston’s ‘Higher Love’ as well as holding down his new BBC Radio 1 Residency. Here he layers up warm chords over deep, 90’s house beats and allows the vocal to soar.
Bass master Cazztek has been making a big impact of late with his floor pumping tunes on the likes of STMPD RCRDS, Confession, Thrive Music and Big Beat. He brings a new perspective to his music and always unites dancers. His remix really jumps out of the speakers; a freaky jam with twisted synths and screwed up bass stabs, warped vocals and mad effects.
Next up is Perfect Havoc’s remix maestro, Kokiri. Everything this young Liverpool producer touches turns to gold. On Perfect Havoc, his remix of Karen Harding’s ‘Picture’ stayed firmly on the airwaves with Mistajam for weeks on end, and via a string a credible releases on Ministry of Sound, Nothing Else Matters and Armada, he counts Annie Mac, Pete Tong, David Guetta, Oliver Heldens and many more as supporters. Here he layers in some turbulent bass that stays down low and makes the track that bit darker.
Long time Perfect Havoc signing, Tobtok a.k.a Tobias Karlsson, is one of the most exciting young producers to emerge from the Swedish scene in recent years, releasing tracks on labels including Kitsune, Toolroom, Astralwerks, Ministry of Sound and more. His remix of ‘So Cold’ will gets hands in the air with big, festival sized chords and an expansive groove that soars to the heavens.
French electronic music duo Raven & Kreyn, played and supported by David Guetta, Don Diablo and Avicii amongst others, offer a version to sing along to with big breakdowns and sunny synths that bring the good times, then finally, up and comers Bruer x Bright Lies up the ante with wild bass stabs, tender vocals and a real energy.

For the vocalist appearing on the record, Zoë Phillips is a songwriter whose music has been marking a mark on BBC Introducing and BBC Radio 1. She has performed live acoustic sets at the likes of Glastonbury Festival, whilst keenly lending her enchanting vocals to electronic music. With a degree in Creative Music Technology from Surrey University Zoë has self-produced and remixed her own releases, as well as handing over her vocals for collaborations that’ve been playlisted across MTV Dance and MTV Trax Top 100
After achieving over 8 weeks in the UK official charts at No. 6, Joel Corry’s “Sorry’ has gone officially Gold in the UK and Double Platinum in Ireland. The summer jam has now achieved over 60 million combined streams across digital services and continues to rock the radio and TV airwaves.
‘Sorry’ was originally released as a garage track back in 1998 by Monstaboy ft. Denzie.
“UK Garage played a huge role in my development as a DJ and a producer. I grew up during the peak of the Garage era, and will always feel a strong connection to the genre. Monsta Boy’s ‘I’m Sorry’ is an anthem, and one of my personal favourite Garage records. I’m really excited to put my own spin on this timeless classic, ready for summer 2019” – Joel Corry
