Après – Secrets (feat. Rothwell)

Perfect Havoc welcomes back Après with his brand new single ‘Secrets’ featuring vocals from UK Bristol singer ‘Rothwell’. Four years after delving into the realms of house music, Après has proved himself to be a household name in the club and radio world. The new single, Secrets, adds to his string of 2019 releases and sees his second under the Perfect Havoc label following ‘Give It Up’ which saw support from Jordan North on BBC Radio 1 Dance Anthems last December and over 300,000 streams on Spotify.

His debut release in January 2015, ‘Chicago’ was first premiered by Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1 and subsequently given away for free as part of her ‘Free Music Monday’ campaign. Following a succession of support, the track was given a full release on record label, SubSoul and went on to achieve millions of streams on Spotify, Youtube & other streaming services in addition to being included on multiple, high profile compilation albums.

Since his first success, Après has released original tracks on Nothing Else Matters, Get Twisted, SubSoul, Fly Boy Records, and Toolroom Records, as well as official remixes for artists like Roger Sanchez, Eli & Fur, Snakehips & many more.

His DJ career has seen him travel internationally, supporting names like Disclosure, Annie Mac & DJ EZ and playing guest mixes for numerous radio shows internationally, including BBC Radio 1Xtra, Kiss FM & Pioneer Radio. Now more than a year into running his own weekly show on London’s Kiss Fresh, his recognisable style is tried and tested to take control of any club.

[Release] Parx – Finally

Perfect Havoc welcomes Parx to the label with his brand new single and 2019 rework of CeCe Peniston 90s hit ‘Finally’. 2017 saw Alex Cramp aka Parx burst on to the scene with the release of Waiting on You on The Magician’s Potion imprint which was also debuted by Danny Howard on BBC Radio 1. October 2017 then saw Sunrise, a collaboration with Kattison which has reached over 4.1 million streams on Spotify alone.

2018 started strong with the release of Fantasy (again on TMTR) featuring the vocal talents of close friend and co-conspirator Adam Engle from Blonde. After Fantasy came Bang, a collaboration with TCTS on Ministry of Sound which gained radio support from Danny Howard and Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1.

Remix wise, Parx is in demand, with his remixes for Alan Walker, Mason and Tobtok & Oliver Nelson amongst others building him up to be one of the go-to remixers of the UK House Scene.

“Growing up ‘Finally’ was one of my favourite tracks and one of the main reasons I got into music production. I decided to try a modern take on arguably one of the greatest house records of all time and I’m so excited for it to come out on an amazing label ‘Perfect Havoc’” says Parx

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.

[Release] Oliver Nelson & Tobtok – Outrageous

Swedish duo, Oliver Nelson & Tobtok follow recent remix collaborations for the likes of Albin Lee Meldau, Lemaitre, and Frank Walker, as well as their own tracks ’99 Red Balloons’ and ‘Jealous’ (released on Astralwerks / Capitol Records), with their brand new rendition of Stix & Stoned  ‘Outrageous’ – 23 years after the original was released. The Oliver Nelson & Tobtok version is released on Hoxton-based label, Perfect Havoc.

Stix & Stoned was the alter ego of DJs Judge Jules and John Kelly, and ‘Outrageous’ cracked the top 40 after a release on the hugely influential Positiva label back in 1996. Oliver Nelson & Tobtok have taken the original main riff and created a big, infectious house groove for 2019 dancefloors.

Oliver Nelson is well qualified to take on this classic track. He’s reached no.1 on Hype Machine 10 times over. His productions have amassed over 250 million streams across YouTube, Spotify and Soundcloud, including massive remixes such as NEIKED’s ‘Sexual’ (16 million streams) and Ella Henderson’s ‘Ghost’ (19 million streams). He collaborated on ‘Riding Shotgun’ with tropical house king, Kygo for the artist’s recent second album, ‘Kids In Love’, generating over 27 million streams so far. Oliver has been a resident DJ in Europe for the tastemaker French label Kitsune, and in 2018, toured America selling out venues such as OutputGrasshopper Underground, and The Standard LA.

Alongside Oliver Nelson, Tobtok a.k.a Tobias Karlsson is one of the most exciting young producers to emerge from the Swedish scene in recent years, signing tracks to labels including KitsuneToolroom and Ministry of Sound. With a sound ranging from nu-disco to house, Tobtok has enjoyed global success with tracks such as ‘Fast Car’ ft River (double platinum in Australia and streamed over 31 million times) and his biggest track this summer, piano-driven house track, ‘As I Sleep’ with fellow Swede, Adrian Lux (12 million views on YouTube and 4 million streams on Spotify so far).

Like Oliver Nelson, Tobtok also hit the US DJ circuit this summer, playing to packed out crowds at OutputThe StandardLove & Propaganda and more, ending up in Ibiza supporting Kygo at Ushuaia.

These exciting, next-gen Swedish producers have delivered a massive new take on ‘Outrageous’, with a drop guaranteed to tear up any big room dancefloor.
