[Release] Tobtok & Ghassemi – Too Cool To Dance (feat. ONIVA)

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’

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.

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.

[Release] Wildkin – High By Your Side

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
