Having collaborated on remixes together for the likes of Albin Lee Meldau, Lemaitre, Frank Walker as well as their recent collaboration on “99 Red Balloons” and “Jealous”, the Swedish duo Oliver Nelson & Tobtok bring back their classic feel good sound alongside British Singer/songwriter Liv Dawson with “Yellow”.

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. Their career highlights include being a resident DJ in Europe for the tastemaker French label Kitsune, in addition to touring around the world, his own Toolroom Records mix compilation (Croatia Poolside 2016), his remix of NEIKED’s “Sexual” (over 15.9 million streams to date and multiple plays on BBC Radio 1) and Ella Henderson’s “Ghost” (19 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” which has generated over 27 million streams. In 2018 Oliver toured America at venues such as Output, Grasshopper Underground, Celebrities, The Standard LA, Love & Propaganda, Bang Bang and a debut in Vegas at Cosmopolitan’s Marquee followed by a swing over to Ibiza to support Kygo at Ushuaia.

Tobtok (who has over 80 million streams on Spotify alone and 70 million YouTube views), 2018 saw Tobtok with incredible support from the likes of Pete Tong, Disciples, TCTS, Tiesto, EDX, Watermat and Camelphat to name a few, with releases such as “On My Way”, “As I Sleep” and “Too Cool To Dance”. Tobtok’s biggest track in 2018 was “As I Sleep” with fellow Swede Adrian Lux which has amassed over 12 million views on YouTube alone, over 4 million streams on Spotify and over 89x podcasts from industry renowned DJs from around the world.

In 2018 Liv Dawson appeared a songwriter who has musically come of age – buoyed by experience, experimentation, and the same startlingly soulful voice and intimate insights into young adulthood that first saw the musical world come knocking to her sleepy hometown of Shepperton. Even before the release of “Tapestry”, aged 13 Liv started writing her own songs and performing around local clubs and pubs, finding a confidence – in part from childhood heroes like Lauryn Hill or Beyonce – which starkly contrasted with her shyness in the playground.
