Tobtok and Adrian Lux, two leading names in the new wave of Swedish house producers collaborate for the first time on ‘As I Sleep’, out now on Perfect Havoc Records. Featuring a sublime vocal from Austrian singer, Charlee, ‘As I Sleep’ is an atmospheric, piano-driven house track set to become a big favourite on Ibiza dancefloors this summer. The track is already getting a huge range of support from leading DJs at club and radio, including Pete Tong (BBC Radio 1), Tiesto, Camelphat, Watermat, Treasure Fingers, Disciples, TCTS, Joachim Garraud, Eton Messy, Martin Garrix and many more. It’s been added to key playlists on Spotify and Apple Music and shows no sign of slowing down as summer and ‘Ibiza anthem’ status beckon.
Tobtok a.k.a Tobias Karlsson is one of the most exciting young producers to emerge from the Swedish scene in recent years. His early career was marred by a battle with cancer; however, he won the fight and took this positive attitude forward into his music, signing tracks to labels including Kitsune, Good Soldier and Ministry of Sound. Tobtok has two sides to his musical personality. His love of nu-disco and vocal anthems has seen him enjoy global success; his track ‘Fast Car’ ft River achieved double platinum status in Australia and has been streamed over 30 million times. However, the new release, ‘As I Sleep’ represents his edgier, darker side, with a more club-focused, piano-driven, house sound.
Grammy-nominated producer, Adrian Lux is another big young talent from Sweden. His track ‘Teenage Dream’ was certified platinum in Australia and blew up on dancefloors worldwide. Much in demand for his sound; spacey, sentimental and club-focused, his remixes include the likes of Basement Jaxx, PNAU, Astrid S, Miami Horror, Roger Sanchez and Lana Del Rey
Breda born and raised, BODÉ is the artist project of Boris Deckers, which is the culmination of years behind the scenes, shadowing his hometown peers to create a new wave of dance music, to take the relay for the new generation. His latest track ‘Talk’ saw Radio 1 support from Pete Tong and has generated over 300,000 streams. BODÉ puts his hands to good use delivering an infectious remix of As I Sleep.
Karen Harding is one busy lady. Since launching her smash top 10 debut single ‘Say Something’ co-written and produced with Grammy-nominated wunderkind MNEK and now certified PLATINUM (600,000 UK sales) with over 18 million video views.
The 25 year-old Newcastle girl has been forging her own path with her stand-out style and sizeable vocal talents. She’s featured on infectious dancefloor slayers from UK producers and hitmakers Blonde and Tough Love. Karen also teamed up with hit Drum and Bass King Wilkinson to have a Radio 1 B listed, chart hit “Sweet Lies” and worked with the legendary Producer Giorgio Moroder co-writing his first new single “Good For Me” (Casablanca USA).
After featuring on Imanos featuring Pusha T and Karen Harding “Gunshy’, included in the movie and Soundtrack XXX – The Return Of Zander starring Vin Diesel. She was recently back on the UK charts with her co-write and feature with Tom Zanetti “More And More”. Karen’s combined SPOTIFY streams are well over 120million.

Oliver Nelson’s productions have amassed 250 million plus streams across platforms such as YouTube, Spotify and Soundcloud while reaching No. 1 on Hype Machine 10 times over. Career highlights include releasing music on Kistuné and being a resident DJ in Europe for the tastemaker French label in addition to touring around the world, his own Toolroom Records mix compilation (Croatia Poolside 2016), his remix of NEIKED’s ‘Sexual’ (over 14.5 million streams to date and multiple plays on BBC Radio 1) and Ella Henderson’s ‘Ghost’ (18.8 million streams to date), his Polydor single ‘Found Your Love’ and his first ever collaboration with Tropical House king Kygo for the artist’s second album Kids In Love titled ‘Riding Shotgun.’ The track instantly hit a number of viral charts in Norway and the USA and had over one million streams within a week on Spotify, now at 20.8 million streams. Oliver will be touring the US, Ibiza, Norway, Helsinki and London this summer 2018 to support his brand new track ‘Talk (ft. Linae)’.
Linae is a Sweden-born and raised singer/songwriter whose voice is strong and smooth enough to cater to every corner from r’n’b to pop. Her music takes influence from the sophisticated mood of Toni Braxton, playfulness of Robyn and late night feels of Marvin Gaye. Although she likes taking us back to the 80’s/90’s, there’s no doubt that her music is nothing but fresh and interesting. Linae’s voice and song writing fits perfectly with Oliver Nelson’s smooth fun nu-disco sound with ‘Talk’ and comes just in time for summer.
Following on from Tobtok’s club anthem ‘As I Sleep’ with Adrian Lux, which saw support from the likes of BBC Radio 1 Pete Tong, Camelphat, Disciples, TCTS, Watermat, Tiesto, Martin Garrix, Nora En Pure plus achieving over 1 million streams, Tobtok teams up with fellow Swede newcomer Ghassemi and singer/songwriter duo ONIVA for a new summer heat blazer titled ‘Too Cool To Dance’

Ghassemi, originally from Uppsala in Sweden, joined Perfect Havoc back in 2015 alongside fellow Swedish pals Tobtok and Oliver Nelson. Mixmag tipped Ghassemi as their one to watch in a four-page feature all about Perfect Havoc and the Swede crew back in January 2016, this later followed with Ghassemi’s own Poolside Miami compilation on prestige dance label ‘Toolroom Records’ and seeing releases on labels such as Kitsune Musique, Big Beat and The Vibe Guide.
After years of serving up pop hits for Swedish Dj’s such as Mike Perry and Cazzette, it comes as no surprise that Stockholm natives ONIVA have a knack for crafting melodies. Consisting of producers Max Billion and Markus Videsater, the boys were brought together through a spur of the moment recording session in 2016 and has remained close collaborators ever since. The duo paired up with fellow Swedes Tobtok & Ghassemi to deliver a catchy dance track.

Perfect Havoc is proud to present a debut duo to the label, all the way from Portugal by the name of Wildkin.
Wildkin is a conceptual Pop/Electronic songwriter/producer duo composed of Tornada and Kindian, originally from Lisbon, Portugal. In the past, the pair have been tackling many corners and styles of songwriting, from folk to rock to electro, first started hitting the stages with indie rock acts, and psychedelic folk side-projects whilst finally moving to electronic production and DJing, focusing mainly on the Electro scene. The duo split and took a long break, traveling and living through South America and Asia, an experience that ended up being the gathering of inspiration to later form what became Wildkin.
“We wanted to do a song that counteracted the way marijuana is usually portrayed in the music industry, with the usual criminal/swaggy aesthetic (often cheesy) clichés. We think that misrepresents, discredits and harms the community. “High By Your Side” focuses on the more humane side, on the good and positive things and on the bonds that can be made and amplified between people, hopefully shortening the distance the general public may yet feel towards the community” – Wildkin
