Tobtok aka Tobias Karlsson leads the new wave of Swedish electronic music DJ/Producers.
With over 600 million streams globally and consistent support across BBC Radio 1, KISS FM, Capital, and more, including spins from Mistajam, Pete Tong, Scott Mills, Charlie Hedges, and Joel Corry, Tobtok continues to prove he is a rare talent.
After winning a battle with cancer early on in his career, Tobtok signed his debut single ‘Savanna’ to highly respected French label, Kitsuné, later touring for the label across Europe. By 2015, his tropical-flavored ‘Fast Car’ ft River (Neon Records) had reached double-platinum sales and crashed into charts around the world as his profile continued to rise.
Tobtok is in high demand working across remixes and productions for Joel Corry, Robin Schulz and Karen Harding to name a few. Off the back of his success as a producer, he has also showcased his DJ skills, mixing Toolroom’s ‘Miami Poolside’ compilation and tearing up dance floors in clubs and festivals around the world, including Ushuaia Ibiza, The Warehouse Project, Creamfields, and Sziget, sharing bills with Kygo, Alesso, Axwell & Ingrosso, Oliver Heldens, and Martin Garrix, as well as on headline tours across the USA and Asia.
Most recently he recently teamed up with fellow Swedish producer Oliver Nelson to rework one of their favourite ever tracks, The Flirtations ‘Nothing But A Heartache’. The original was released in 1968 and Decca’s A&R team asked the Swedish duo to work on a new version to preserve the magic of the original, while updating it for a new generation of listeners.
