Following the huge success of Tobtok’s May 2020 release ‘Freak Like Me’, which has now been streamed 1.3 million times, spun eight times on BBC Radio 1 and appeared in video form on MTV Club Hits, Tobtok (aka Tobias Karlsson) shows yet again that he’s leading the new wave of Swedish electronic music DJ / producers on this new single. Globally he has generated over 300+ million streams, holds a double platinum record to his name in Australia with ‘Fast Car’, and is in high demand as a remixer and producer for other artists such as Joel Corry, HRVY, Alex Ross, Karen Harding, Kesha and more. Equally in demand as a DJ, Tobtok was invited by the hugely respected house label, Toolroom to curate its ‘Miami Poolside’ album series. Prior to lockdown, Tobtok could be found gracing the decks at Ushuaia (Ibiza), The Warehouse Project (UK), on multiple Kitsuné European tours, Creamfields, and Sziget festivals, and on tour across the USA. Outside the DJ booth, Tobtok is a favourite with reputed labels such as Ministry of Sound, Astralwerks, Hexagon, Kitsuné and Good Soldier, all lining up to sign his work. With more massive tracks, collaborations and DJ sets lined up, Tobtok is ready to break through in a big way.

Hailing from the shores of Hawaii and setting up shop in Southern California, Mahalo has quickly made a name for himself as one of the newest rising stars in global dance music, creating cutting edge material branded as his signature sound “liquid house”. This young producer has gained the support of an impressive amount of many of the world’s biggest DJs, producers and tastemakers while also performing at some of the most coveted festivals in North America such as Electric Daisy Carnival, Groove Cruise, Nocturnal and Wonderland.

Mahalo’s 2019 breakout single ‘So Cold’ (released on Perfect Havoc / Armada) set a benchmark for future success, journeying 15 weeks on the Billboard Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart, eventually rising to #1, and achieving over 20 million streams globally. With releases on labels like Tiesto’s AFTR:HRS Records, Mark Knight’s Toolroom Records, Armin van Buuren’s Armada Music, and various other tastemaking labels such as Enormous Tunes, Bunny Tiger, and Insomniac Records, it’s no wonder why the world is starting to take notice of this promising talent whose future looks more than bright.

Joining Tobtok and Mahalo on This Town is music industry veteran, Timpo. Over the past few decades, Timpo has sold millions of records worldwide as co-writer for some of the biggest names in the biz from MK to the Pet Shop Boys and Eli Brown to Paloma Faith. His years of expertise in songwriting shines through in this new release with a vocal that sticks long after the track has finished.

This Town (feat. Timpo) marks yet another quality release for Perfect Havoc, also a management and events company. The label has hit over 300 million streams globally, bagged two UK Top 10’s with Joel Corry and had numerous other hits with its roster of breaking talent such as Karen Harding, The Aston Shuffle, PS1, Oliver Nelson, Kokiri, Freejak to name a few. The label A&R’s have an acute ear for both underground and mainstream hits, licensing to labels including Atlantic Records, Columbia Records, RCA, Ministry of Sound, Polydor, Toolroom, Thrive and Astralwerks. Perfect Havoc is also a dab hand in the club world, throwing pop-up parties around the globe in London, Norway, Sweden, LA/San Francisco, Paris and South Korea.
